IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KO’s) has insisted he has more fights left in the tank following his knockout victory against George Groves (19-2, 15 KO’s). Froch turns 37 next month and feels strong enough to continue fighting after throwing what he described as his best ever knockout punch.
“If I bowed out now I could say that was my finest hour, my finest right hand. I’m 37 next month but I feel strong.”
The English duo’s heated rivalry came to a screeching halt on Saturday when Froch floored Groves in the eighth round.
With just over thirty seconds left of the round, Groves received a shattering blow that slapped the 26 year old to the ground where the referee called for medical attention.
Froch records a 2-0 win/loss ratio against Groves having won their first encounter under controversial circumstances.
The Nottingham fighter added he would love to headline a fight in Las Vegas before hanging up his gloves.
“I could have three or four more fights, but If I decide after I’ve been on holiday I’ve had enough, don’t be surprised.”
“The one thing I haven’t done is to fight in Las Vegas. That would get me up to remain in this sport. I wouldn’t say it is Vegas or bust – it is close to that”
