Cobra to strike again? You bet!

Saturday brings the standout fixture in the domestic calendar with the Froch-Groves II card taking place at Wembley Stadium in front of a bumper audience, both in attendance and watching live on Sky Sports pay-per-view. Promoter Eddie Hearn has dubbed the main event the biggest fight in British boxing history and although that may seem a tad OTT, it’s a match-up that has got everyone talking and has split opinion right down the middle, not least among punters.

Carl Froch enjoyed favouritism with bookmakers for the pair’s initial encounter back in November and although ‘The Cobra’ will duck between the ropes as the most likely winner according to odds compilers again, there has been a definite sway of opinion towards ‘Team Groves’. Backers of the 36-year-old will find their man no bigger than 3/4 (Betway) while another KO/TKO win trades at 6/4 (Totesport) and points verdict 9/2 (Totesport).

Froch vs Groves II – Who wins?

Referee Howard Foster should be claiming some of the profits from the upcoming rematch.  It was Foster’s premature stoppage of the first fight which has led to so much interest in the second.  No one can be certain how that fight would have ended.  Was Froch coming on with his typical late surge and ready to stop Groves in the next few rounds?  Had Groves saved enough gas in the tank to withstand the coming onslaught?  Sadly, we will never know for sure.  However, mainly due to this controversy, interest in the second fight has reached unprecedented levels.

Will Groves’ words come to bite him on his behind?

A lot of boxing fans remember that bold prediction that Evander Holyfield made when he said that he would knock out Lennox Lewis in three rounds ahead of their controversial 1999 undisputed heavyweight match. He said God told him that is what would happen. It failed to materialise. What followed, by Holyfield’s own admission, is that he almost quit after that third round after almost losing heart.
