Is Carl Froch contemplating retirement or is he looking to rekindle an old rivalry?

The reason I ask is that with Froch?s Las Vegas swansong now a distant dream, following the shock defeat Julio Cesar Chavez Junior suffered on Saturday night, the 37-year-old Nottingham fighter has turned his attentions to an old rival, namely George Groves.

Speaking to the media, about a possible retirement scenario, Froch has been far from complimentary about the London fighter, remarking,

?I?m a four-time world champion.

?To have the defining moment in front of 80,000 at Wembley against that idiot form London?.if I retire, I?m not going to be sad.

?I?m going to be one of the happiest men going.?

They are words that are hardly complimentary and could well instigate a war of words between two former foes with the possibility of a Froch v Groves III being bandied about.

But, whilst I remain extremely doubtful that the Boxing public would swallow another bout between the two, I?m struggling to accept why Froch was only, it seems, really interested in a Las Vegas swansong when there?s a certain Andre Ward out there willing to give Froch the chance to avenge a blemish on his record.

But then again, what do I know?
