Some of the american boxing analyst and fans were absolutely stunned what they saw on 31st May 2014, Froch vs Groves II will go down in the history books being one of the most talked about and most anticipated fight in the history. 80,000 fans squeezed in Wembley Stadium while millions watching from home has kind of brought british boxing much needed spotlight.

The start of the fight was not as explosive like the first fight as Froch was more compact and he had a better gameplan this time around. His jab was making it difficult for Groves to get going and land his perfect right hand shots. Untill the 7 round froch was slightly ahead on points but everything changes in the 8th round, when just as Groves was getting into his “groove” froch produced one of the nastiest knockout punch with left-right combo and it not only floored Groves but ended this debate once it for all.
