Tonight, some 24 hours before Wembley Stadium is converted into an arena to stage the hugely anticipated re-match between Carl Froch and George Groves, England will play Peru in a friendly football international.

Rumour has it that George Groves will be, at half-time, paraded in front of what is anticipated will be a decent sized crowd.

However, we also hear that his opponent, the current champion, Carl Froch, has chosen to remain in the sanctuary of his hotel, a venue reported to be some seven miles away from the magnificent setting for the Saturday night fight.

But, when pressed on the apparent presence of Groves at half-time, Froch has curtly remarked,

?That doesn?t surprise me.?

?He would go to the opening of an envelope.?

It?s a remark that brought a smile to my face, how about you?
