You’re a poor imitation, “Martin”.

For a start, I can spell.

I know that there is no demand for Froch vs Chavez Jr in the US, but I’m going to keep saying it until people think it’s true. I really would rather not fight Groves.

Chavez Jnr a drug cheat! He likes smoking weed, hardly likely to enhance his performance. Perhaps he’d had a couple of hits before the Vera fight, coming in over weght would indicate a desire to eat. Had he been on anything else and he would be fit. Just a little old weed hardly helpful to a pro boxer, just plain stupid and expensive.

Goosey – I agree and that fight was a well publicised £10 million purse.

What happens if Brian vera beats chavez?

People should try listening to the interview with Hearn to which this thread is attached. That’s where Hearn mentions the 25% offer. The IBF, according to Hearn, would make it a 15%/85% split. Listen to the interview in order to make sense of my comments at the start of the thread (I was assuming people would have done).

Plus, people are assuming that “a seven figure sum” must mean 1 million. I might do, but it might also mean 2 million, 3 million, whatever.

Boxing barlow.. I think this fight makes more £ than Fury v Haye…

Surely it is now down to Froch’s promotor to agree terms with Groves. If he can not the bout will go to purse bids where other promotors will get the opportunity to offer the fighters more money and stage the fight away from Hearn. There are discussion on here, although how much of it is based on fact is debatable. If Groves had been offered £1 million and this equates to 25% of the purse that this makes the purse £4 million. I know the purse for Fury vrs Haye was £10 million! So to me these numbers dont add up and if Hearn is just offering a £4 million purse if it goes out to bids the fight could go for far more.

this = THINK… lol

Posted January 24, 2014 4:32 pm 


This fight is going to make big cash and Groves knows it… So does Eddie Hearn.. And with Froch being one or two fights away from packing in who do you this Eddie will be more interested in? A Heading for retirement Froch, or 25 year old Groves?

Posted January 24, 2014 4:31 pm 


Martin ….”Oh, and Groves really can’t price himself out now, given that he’s taken this route of filing a complaint with the IBF and they’ve upheld it. He’s painted himself into a corner there, has George, and is just going to have to accept whatever is offered to him now.”

No.. wrong.. all kinds of wrong.. Why do you think Groves just turned down the offer made to him? After flying over to the USA for a meeting with the IBF, coming back to the UK, turning down the offer, stating that the IBF would order a rematch..? Wrong, wrong, wrong..

Posted January 24, 2014 4:25 pm 


I wouldn’t say there is a “demand” in the U.S. for the Chavez fight it’s just a nice match IF we can’t get the Groves rematch.

I will say it again. Who says Groves has been offered 25% of the purse? Where has this been quoted from?

Posted January 24, 2014 4:20 pm 



Where are all those boxing fans who swore Froch was to scared to fight Groves……….. Why can you not read?

Posted January 24, 2014 4:13 pm 


Froch fought Groves for a “fairly easy” UK pay per view money spinner, that the rest of the world wasn’t that bothered about… unfortunately for Froch it didn’t work out that way. And now he’s being forced into a rematch against a guy that may well beat him – the same guy he was meant to wipe the floor with. Damaging fight for the Cobra’s record I’m afraid.

I believe that Chavez Jr. will defeat the Englishman by way of knockout.

Posted January 24, 2014 3:50 pm 

the dude

Groves should rematch Degale in Brentford Leisure Centre for 500 pounds if he won’t accept Froch 2 with 25 percent and 7 figure sum guarantee, madness!

Posted January 24, 2014 3:47 pm 


Who the hell wants to see Froch fight JCC Junior?? Kessler, GGG, Kovalev, Stevenson, Groves, and Ward are all far more relevant fights. … and to think Froch ridicules Calzaghe for ending career in MSG against RJJ – a former multi-division champ legend of the sport. …. yet Carl wants a former middleweight belt holder who appears to be on the slide, in a small casino in vegas.

Where the 25% been mentioned anywhere? All I have seen stated is that Hearn has offered a 7 figure sum which I would presume is a million quid. If these eprcentages are correct that would put the purse at just 4 million quid?

Posted January 24, 2014 3:32 pm 


Oh, and Groves really can’t price himself out now, given that he’s taken this route of filing a complaint with the IBF and they’ve upheld it. He’s painted himself into a corner there, has George, and is just going to have to accept whatever is offered to him now.

Posted January 24, 2014 3:15 pm 


Let’s not leap from extreme to another folks. Chavez Jr is a very good fighter, and it would be a good match-up, but Froch would surely be the betting favourite. I dod think he’d be “too much” for Chavez, but you never know: Chavez also has one of the best chins in the sport and has shown that he can retain power right up to the final bell against Martinez (who, let’;s not forget, was very nearly knocked out by Chavez).

But aren’t you people paying attention? The IBF are demanding a Froch-Groves rematch, so now we’re looking at that next (unless Groves prices himself out or Froch lets himself be stripped of his IBF belt, which he surely won’t do).

Posted January 24, 2014 3:12 pm 


chavez jr is a fat useless drugs cheat. end of.

Posted January 24, 2014 3:05 pm 


skinnysteve…..How will Chavez jr prove to be far to much for Froch ?

Posted January 24, 2014 3:01 pm 


“chavez jr will prove to be far to much for froch”

You’re living in topsy-turvy land my friend.

Posted January 24, 2014 2:56 pm 


To be honest, given that Groves has played this IBF card, Hearn would be within his rights to say “You turned down the offer of 25%, so now the IBF are demanding a rematch but suggesting you get 15%, so you’d better go with that or there’ll be no rematch”.

That would be reasonable of Hearn’s part, but he kept saying “we just want to get the fight mad”, so perhaps he’ll still let Groves take the 25%. If that happens, Groves better thank his lucky stars and take the offer now. Similarly, if Hearn does “play hardball” and insists that they go by whatever the IBF recommend in terms of a purse split, Groves better take that and take it as a lesson hard learnt.

chavez jr will prove to be far to much for froch

Posted January 24, 2014 2:50 pm 


It’s simple: Groves got what he wanted in terms of the IBF demanding a rematch, so he’d better accept whatever the IBF recommend in terms of the split. It sounds like Hearn may still be prepared to offer 25%, and if so Groves had better count himself lucky and accept without further ado.

if groves aint careful he could be fighting degale outside superdrug in kent.
