Boxing is fixed.

Sounds like groves was game tbf. It reads like he'd become a bit spent & would have been in trouble rest of fight though. It'll also read he got stopped as expected tomoz.

Why did they stop it? From what I read, it sounded like Froch was well behind, next thing fight is stopped and Froch the winner

Said on the bbc that groves was on the ropes and not responding to a barrage from froch. It does sound like the ref was premature with the stop though.

"The ref lost control of the fight and tried to reclaim it by stopping it" us what I've just read. Don't know why Froch's getting booed. Not his fault; unless it really was fixed.

Carl Froch: "It was a fair enough stoppage. I felt I had a couple more free shots on him and I was lining him up for the uppercut. He was struggling, that last one or two shots can do great damage in this sport.

"The referee has to make a split second decision; it's the referee's decision. I don't have any sympathy for him you have to put yourself in the referee's hands. As a fighter I've never disrespected him, I respect him as a fighter.

"He has earned more respect from me as a fighter, as a person he has been very childish and very rude. He's held his hand up proudly tonight, he came in to the arena tonight to boos and is leaving with cheers."



George Groves: "I'd like to say I have immense respect for Froch. I hope after today he'll have more respect. I tried to shake his hands, but he didn't have any of it but then he came and said some kind words. I was getting boos and now I'm getting cheers in front of these amazing fans. I'm so proud to come here and give this display - I know I'll be a great fighter. I had this taken away from me unjustly."
