Talking George Groves, Rocky Fielding, Anthony Crolla, Scott Quigg and more

Another weekend, another controversy in our great but tainted sport.  Of course, I am referring to the Carl Froch “victory” over George Groves, as he retained his IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles at the Manchester Phones 4u Arena on Saturday night.

Most of the blame for the controversy and a lot of the attached vitriol has been aimed at Howard Foster, the British referee who stopped the fight too early in most viewers’ eyes.  Foster, though, does have an argument for vindication, particularly in light of the recent injuries that have befallen several boxers around the world in the last few weeks.  He could say that this was perhaps in his mind as he separated the two fighters for the final time.

Burns set for Beltran Rematch

Ricky Burns’s manager Alex Morrison has revealed that the 30-year-old Scot is set for a rematch with Mexico’s Raymundo Beltran in February.
