George Groves is, perhaps, a matter of days away from achieving his life-time ambition.

In Las Vegas, in the early hours of Sunday morning, Groves will be fighting Badou Jack for the WBC version of the super-middleweight crown.

Many feel that, with this being his third attempt, it really is now or never for the popular Hammersmith fighter.

As the fight approaches, words have already been spoken by Groves? biggest rival, Carl Froch.

The retired Nottingham fighter has suggested that Groves isn?t the fighter he once was and that those two epic battles between the two, especially the one at Wembley in front of 80,000 spectators, are the reason why.

Naturally Groves has had a few words to say on that subject and wants to make Froch eat his words, with Groves commenting to the media,

?I need to prove Carl wrong on Saturday.

?I will do my talking in the ring. Froch is now a retired fighter, just a pundit. All he is now is an opinion.

?I am not fussed about what Carl or anyone else has to say. I?ve faced a lot of criticism in my career but it has never stopped me forward.

?It has not stopped me getting in big fights and it won?t stop me becoming world champion.?

Groves has every chance of becoming the new WBC world super-middleweight champion this weekend, if he keeps his cool and boxes to the game-plan the difference in class between the two fighters will prevail but, as we all know, if he switches off for one second his dream will die, there will be no fourth chance, well not for many a year I?d suggest.
