These two fighters originally fought back in November of last year and Froch won when the referee called a halt to proceedings in the ninth round. However, many pundits and fans felt the ref stepped in too soon and with Groves ahead at the time on all three of the judges’ scorecards the fight was undoubtedly highly controversial.

The two pugilists clearly don’t get along and Groves has been winning the mind games, as he did prior to the first fight. He claims he is quicker of hand and foot and will beat the defending IBF and WBA super middleweight champion with ease when they clash on Saturday night.

For his part Froch, who will be 37 in July, has warned that Groves “could get hurt” and we’re inclined to believe that the champion will be the one laughing once the dust has settled. Froch may have taken Groves a little lightly first time around but he won’t make that mistake again and, as a quick glance at our live betting odds comparison shows, the odds makers agree, with the Nottingham fighter the clear favourite.

Our main betting tip here is a simple one: Froch to win at odds just big enough to represent good value. If you prefer something at longer odds then our primary alternative tip is for the older man to win inside the distance. Froch has proven before that he is capable of coming back from disappointing performances and his class and experience will see him home against the younger man who, despite a fine showing last time, is not in the same league as Froch.
