SAN DIEGO, CA. (November 23, 2013)—TODAY it will be one of the most anticipated bouts of 2013 when IBF/WBA Super Middleweight champion Carl Froch (31-2, 22 KO’s) defends his titles against undefeated George Groves (19-0, 15 KO’s) in a bout that will be televised LIVE in the United States on AWE and AWEtv.com
The action begins at 3pm ET / 12 PM noon PT
The passion from both fighters has been seen and heard as the trash talk has been ramped up over the past few weeks that has created a heated tension between the fighters.
“Hate is a strong word – I don’t hate him,” said Froch. “I just don’t like him. There’s nothing desirable about him, his attitude, his demeanor, the way he conducts himself, his lack of professionalism.”
Froch weighed in at 167 ¾ lbs while Groves checked in at 166.8 lbs for the battle.
Froch tried to intimidate the upstart challenger by whispering in his ear and the two fighters had to be separated.
Groves did not back down and both guys are ready for what could yet another great day of boxing AWE.
In the co-feature, Scott Quigg (121 ¾ lbs) defends the WBA Super Bantamweight title when he takes on Argentinian Diego Silva (121 ½ lbs).
Fans will get to see a full 4 hour card with undercard fights featuring Former Middleweight world title challenger and Lightweight’s Anthony Crolla and Stephen Foster Jr.
“This is going to be an outstanding fight”, said AWE President Charles Herring
“These two guys do not like each other and Groves desperately wants to be where Froch is. This will be a passionate fight that some insiders are calling this the fight of the day and a candidate for Fight of the Year. Carl Froch is always in those types of fights and George Groves has youth, hunger and ‘won’t take a backwards step and we are excited to bring this to the fans on AWE & AWEtv.com”
