George Groves tries to bait Carl Froch into rematch

George Groves has decided to use humor and a joking challenge of Carl Froch's courage to try and wind up further interest in a rematch.

There's plenty of demand for a rematch between George Groves and Carl Froch after the controversial stoppage of their November 23 fight, which Froch won when referee Howard Foster called a halt to the bout in round nine, with Froch rallying and hurting his challenger, but not to the degree that many felt it was time to stop what had been an exciting and compelling bout.

Groves (19-1, 15 KO) desperately wants a chance to avenge his defeat, and took to his Twitter account to try baiting Froch (32-2, 23 KO) into the fight with this image.


Froch recently said that he's not interested in fighting Adonis Stevenson or going over old ground with Groves, but that he is interested in a rematch with Andre Ward, which is the joke here. I'm glad I explained that to you, really helps you understand the humor. Leaves you no room for interpretation or anything. Great stuff by me.
