Former world champions Carl Froch and George Groves give sad opinion about scheduled undisputed world heavyweight bout

Former world super-middleweight champions Carl Froch and George Groves recently said something that fans dislike to hear about the upcoming undisputed world heavyweight championship bout.


Both of them said during a session they had with talkSport that they had no confidence announcements saying that the bout will hold on May 18. Each man said he had always doubted the news.

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is currently healing from a wound he allegedly sustained during a sparring session with Agron Smakici, but many still think that the wound was fabricated.

George Groves said the following during their discussion at talkSport:

‘When the fight was made I thought that fight doesn’t happen. After Ngannou I thought there was no way Fury would fight Ngannou next. There’s always that feeling of I’ll believe it when it happens.

‘Then when it comes out it’s off, there’s no shock factor to it. I’ve never seen a cut that bad from sparring. To get cut that bad in sparring is unlucky isn’t it really.’

Froch himself said last year that he did not believe the fight would happen on February 17 as several insiders announced.

During a recent recorded conversation at talkSport, Froch said:

‘I’m not so sure. To start with I wasn’t so sure about the cut, I wanted to see it stitched up. After seeing Tyson Fury on his Instagram, the cut to me doesn’t look like an acute injury it looks like it’s healing.

‘It scabbed over, the bruising is showing, and it looks a week old. Have they been sitting on it to time it right and give the news? The sparring footage was blurry and horrible and we never saw the cut after he got elbowed.

‘I’m devastated it’s not happening in two weeks and I still dubious as to whether it will happen in May. What’s your take?’

What fans can do is to wait as the saga unfolds.
