Would the boxing public be prepared to accept a third fight between Groves and Froch?

It?s an intriguing question, especially when Groves is of the opinion that a third bout between the two could happen.

Speaking after the announcement that Groves had secured a fight against the European champion Christophe Rebrasse, a fight deemed as providing the mandatory challenger for the WBC super-middleweight title currently held by Sakio Bika, Groves has spoken about the intense feelings Froch has for him and the rivalry that exists, commenting,

?Carl probably knows he got lucky again.?

?He was in a fight that I feel I was winning but I got caught ? it happens in boxing.?

?Fair play to him, he landed the punch that ended the fight. I thought he?d be satisfied with it but he doesn?t seem too satisfied. He?s still trying to have digs at me.?

?He probably wants me to retire but that?s not going to happen.?

?There hasn?t been any communication with Carl since the fight.?

?But he has started following me on Twitter again so maybe he has put his demons to rest.?

?I gave him the praise he needed immediately after the fight and the following night he wanted me to crawl back into the hole I came out of. So, Carl was the one grieving, even though he had just knocked me out.?

Interesting stuff but would the public buy into a third fight?

My opinion is that they might but time is of the essence, before a fight could become such a viable option Groves would have to get back to winning ways with a couple of decent wins and maybe bring the WBC title to the table before Froch gets too much older and contemplates retiring from the game he has graced.
