The suggestion that, following his win over Christophe Rebrasse, George Groves is seeking, somewhere down the line, a third fight with Carl Froch is still a topical subject.

After Groves comfortably beat Rebrasse, on points, to set up a clash with the WBC champion Anthony Dirrell, Froch was, on the evidence of Groves? performance on Saturday night, particularly dismissive about Groves chancing of taking the WBC title off of the American.

Froch is required to make a mandatory defence of his titles in another all-British showdown against James DeGale, although the Nottingham fighter is still dreaming of a Las Vegas swansong before he considers retirement.

Ideally, Groves sees himself bearing Dirrell and taking the WBC belt. He?d then be looking towards Froch beating DeGale setting up a titanic third clash whereby a possible three world title belts could be up for grabs.

Talking about the possibility of a third bout, 26 year-old Groves has remarked,

?I?d love to fight Carl Froch for a third time but I want to win the WBC belt first. If Carl wants to box on, it?s the biggest fight out there for him.?

In financial terms it possibly is, but in terms of career progression a third match-up could only possibly benefit George.

So will it happen? No I?d say at this moment in time!
