- George Groves points win ... £10 ... 7/2 coral.co.uk
Carl Froch Vs George Groves II may be some way off but the boxing-related news community has already covered every angle of the May 31 scheduled bout, and the bookmakers have released their odds.
Froch is a 1/2 favourite despite being behind on all the judges scorecards when the referee intervened in the first bout and gave the Nottingham man a tko victory.
There is an argument that Froch took Groves lightly in the original contest but the current super middleweight world champion hasn't made that claim himself and he is known to be a dedicated trainer for every fight he enters.
I think the boxers may take slightly different tactics into the rematch but the physical differences will be the same, and they will determine the fight. Groves showed quicker reactions in the first match-up but Froch reinforced his reputation as an aggressive, powerful warrior.
Froch is only 11/8 to win by ko but Groves on points is as long as 7/2 at the moment. It may be a bit premature to bet on this fight but I am sure the 7/2 odds will come tumbling down as fight night approaches, so I am getting a small stake on a Groves points victory now.
