Groves: I'll win the war

George Groves says he will destroy Carl Froch - at least in the build-up to their rematch!

In an exclusive interview with the Ringside Toe 2 Toe podcast, the 25-year-old challenger says he will win the verbal battle.

The pair, who will face each other at Wembley on May 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office, will start their promotional tour next week and Groves is looking forward to winding Froch up again.

"I love having a little verbal spat with Carl because when he is threatened he spits out his dummy," he said.

"He stops making sense, he starts contradicting himself and he starts relying on cliches and pre-rehearsed scripts.

"He's not proactive, he's not even reactive. He's just set in his ways and for him a verbal battle must be soul-destroying.

"If I was Carl I wouldn't be looking forward to any confrontation with me, especially the ones that don't have gloves in!"
