Greatest Promoter of All Times.

I am looking to get the winner of GGG vs GG to face either Badou Jack or James DeGale and I want to throw it open for Froch and Andre Ward to enter the party and put their hats forward. We can have another Super Six, which I will call the Grand Affair pitting Froch, Groves and DeGale from UK vs GGG Kazakstan vs Ward and Jack from USA. Yes. Plans are afoot and we can all make several millions together. My message to Groves is to reject the 15:85 split and join my team and make buckets of cash. The time is now to sign on the dotted line.

Posted February 6, 2014 11:55 am 


Greatest Promoter of All Times.

Groves will not fight Carl Froch in a rematch. He will make millions with my promotion of him when he fights Gennady Golovkin for the belts at Super Middleweight. Gennady has a middleweight match in April and then he is free for a summer step up in weight to face St. George. This match is billed as GGG vs GG and pits two of the brightest stars anywhere on the planet meeting at the limit of 168 pounds to deliver us the future of boxing. St. George has told me he is a dragonslayer and Gennady views himself as the fire breathing dragon very keen to grab onto and hold onto all the gold between 154 and 168 and he is more than happy to accept the challenge of St. George. We are now mulling over venues in Europe that can hold this massive outdoor fight. If St. George can drop the snake, then he is more than able to stomp out the fire of the fire breathing GGG and GGG is more than willing to dodge the bombs of the saint to prove he is the future of boxing. From now on in he will accept only the challenges of a Cotto, a Martinez or a Froch and a Quillin or a Sturm. Both men want all the belts and I as the world’s greatest promoter am here to make this match happen.

If Groves can make better money elsewhere, he should shut up about Froch and go take it. If not, he should shut up and take the Froch fight @ 15%. I’m sick of listening to his whining.

Rich fails yet again!! ROFL.

Born and raised in the town of Oldham, which is situated in the county of Lancashire in the North West of England, television presenter and television personality Philip Schofield credits a lot of his success to the discipline and work ethic he acquired as a teenage amateur boxer in the mid to late 1970s.

What do you remember most about your days as an amateur boxer?

”I started when I was 9 and I fought until I was about 16 or 17. I was a Great Britain schoolboy champion and a runner up a couple of times in the North West regional ABA junior championships in my weight division too. I was OK, I was competent. I was a jabber, I had a good jab. I had about 40 fights and I won about maybe 30. I was more a classical upright stylist ala Richie Woodhall than an out-and-out banger. But make no mistake about it I could crack a little when I wanted to. I was a bit of a tearaway during my late teens and I had more than my fair share of scraps on the cobbles too and I can assure you very few of my adversaries back then finished on their feet. lol.”

Is there one bout from your fighting days that stands out the most when you look back?

”It was maybe close to my last fight. I must have been 16. I actually won the fight, but I came out of the ring and I had obviously got a concussion because my trainer said to go downstairs and take my clothes off and stuff, and I couldn’t figure out what downstairs meant. It kind of freaked me out a bit. It lasted for about three minutes or so. I remember thinking, I’ve got to get out of this. It’s not comfortable anymore.”

How closely do you follow boxing today?

”I follow it religiously. I watch Boxnation and Sky a lot and all the HBO and Showtime fights, and I regularly attend live shows too. I’m particularly fond of the lower divisions and I’ve travelled as far a field as Tokyo, Japan and Caracas, Venezuela to watch fights. I’m absolutely disgusted with the state of the current Bantamweight division, though. It’s absolutely awful. Things are certainly not like they were in Carlos Zarate or Eder Jofre’s heyday anymore that’s for sure.”

Will people please stop saying Groves was “robbed”, FFS. It could well be that the referee did him the greatest favour of his career, since he may well have been properly KO’d if the fight had been allowed to continue, and then it’d be a long time before he got another title shot. It certainly looked to me, and many other people, like Groves had punched himself out (throwing way too many in the sixth), that Froch had him buzzed and was going in for the kill. As it is, he gets another chance at two world titles, and is offered a million quid for the privilege. It’s hardly something to f ucking whine about!

Posted February 6, 2014 8:20 am 


OneInchPunch

85-15 purse bids will not have the options that Froch & Hearn’s want just in case… the fact the want options means they are not 100% confident, just in case i loose, i want a rematch… just in case my fighter loses, i want you signed-up for another 4 to 5 fights with me. one thing i can say for Grove’s, he his own man and business man as well. Now a 85-15 purse split does not mean options in my mind… so is it really about the money for this fight…. Or future fights??

Posted February 6, 2014 7:55 am 


WHAT!?!

Really it doesn’t matter whether Georgy Porgy signs and Hearn has a 5 fight deal or not. Groves is getting beat again and KOéd again. Froch has already proven that Groves couldn’t finish him. Froch has already proven that when Groves is in trouble he turns his back and runs. A rematch would be a short sweet KO to Froch and a badly damaged Groves because the ref will be too scared of stopping the fight early.

Posted February 6, 2014 7:31 am

I can see Hearn and Froch going for Chavez Jr if Grove doesn’t sign a Matchfix indentured servant contract. It would be too high risk for Hearn to not own both fighters – at the very least there will be a rematch clause.

This is Groves career, this is how he makes money. You would obviously want to make as much money as you can in a profession which is as short and brutal as boxing. I don’t blame him. You guys wouldn’t work for the minimum wage if you knew for a fact that you could earn a higher salary.

boxing barlow

Hearn wants Groves to be his bit*ch! 5 fight deal after he beats froch, thats the sticking point. Groves has said he would be better off financially in the long term doing the fight for free with no 5 fight contract after than he would accepting Hearns first offer! Someone has mentioned fighting with Hearns camp is not such a bad thing. But if Groves wins he will be stepping into Carls shoes and he will be the one in line for big fights in the USA or in bringing big name fighters with big American promoters over here to the uk. Why on earth would he want to be signed to Hearn and have another paymaster taking a cut. We all moan about the state boxing is in and foe mw this is just another example of promotors bleeding the sport of its money. For example if Groves were to beat Froch and the go to the states and fight a golden boy fighter they would have to pay Hearn a fee just to allow Golden Boy to promote the fight! Ridiculous its not like Groves has been with Hearn for years.

Posted February 6, 2014 4:22 am 


TARK

@loxodontox, not happy enough being Jimmy Saviles apprentice, you also think you know about boxing contracts. Groves didn’t take a quarter cut because of the addition strings attached, such as Hearn owning his as for 2 years.

Posted February 6, 2014 3:20 am 


TARK

Given Groves has to pay an additional 25% to Adam Booth, got robbed in the first fight, and subsequently has lost ranking position, can you lot honestly say you wouldn’t push for as much money as possible if you were in Groves’ position? Froch wont back down though, so it looks like 15% no-strings attached is what Groves will get, unfortunately. Groves just has to not let Froch gloating about being champ and worth 85% not effect him. God knows Froch will be using everything he has to get under Groves’ skin; its the only thing he can do to win.

Posted February 6, 2014 3:15 am

Groves was offered £1 million, not $1 million, big difference there, Ward biggest pay was less than $2 million and he meant to be p4p number 3,Froch would get around £3 million anywhere, Ward doesn’t command the big money fights.

Posted February 6, 2014 2:42 am

Groves will be all right mentally…

He had Froch damned near out and let him slip away.. He knows he has faster hands and that Froch is tougher and stronger.. He knows he cannot defend well and neither can Froch.. He gets hit.. But he has one more fight of experience and development under his belt.. His experience jumped 5% in one fight.. And Froch will be a few months older.

I would take the shot any way I could get it… I would have accepted the first offer… jumped all over it… A million dollars is nice.

I don’t think Groves will win frankly… But if he DOES win a Ward fight is his… That fight would be in England for sure—and about 3 million for Groves.

Posted February 6, 2014 2:14 am 


loxodontox

Sooooo, Groves, is it about the money? You were all happy when the IBF ordered the rematch. You said that was the most important thing. Now you are going so far as to try and overturn the decision of the Froch fight, even though you should have protested that loss the moment you left the damn arena! Face it, 85/15 is the split. You want to play by the rules, you want the MANDATED rematch, take the MANDATED split. Man up.

Even if you were the number 1 contender for the belt, you would see a 75/25 split in Froch’s favor. You would make less than the seven figures you were offered. You failed, and did so big time. You tossed your financial leverage away, then received what you most wanted, a MANDATED shot at the IBF belt.

Now that you have the IBF on your side, why not just MAN UP and go through with it. Force the fight, or make Froch look like a coward by vacating his title in a move that would make Koki Kameda appear to have giant brass balls compared to Froch. I doubt Froch vacates, but yeah…

Groves is probably psyching himself out over all this crap. I wouldn’t be surprised if he somehow became nervous in the build up to a rematch, while he was ICE COLD in the build up to the first fight and the first 6 rounds of the fight.

Ward fought an away fight vs Froch… That fight was scored worse than if it had been fought in Nottingham and Froch’s girl friend and sisters were scoring it.

It was about as bad as the scoring for Mayweather-Canelo… You might expect home cooking for Floyd in Las Vegas—but you would have thought that fight was was scored in Mexico City.

Boxing has one major problem… Our judges suck camel crap.

Froch too good

Ward is afraid of fighting away, I respect Groves more than Ward, Ward is a stay at home fighter, wants everything to his advantage, he knows fighting away is a dis advantage as a Boxer, as he has proved with the supersix and since, he is not confident.

Froch had guts, took his punches and stopped him, end of, the ref stopped Froch from teeing off on Groves and stopping him worse, Groves is just a cry baby and he said Froch was going to cry, Froch was just saving it.

‘I thought it would end in tragedy’: Phillip Schofield was convinced pal Jason Donovan was going to die from drugs

He famously collapsed at Kate Moss’ 21st birthday party at the height of his drug addiction in the mid 1990s.
And now Jason Donovan’s friend, TV presenter Phillip Schofield, has opened up about his concerns for the pop star.
Schofield has admitted he feared ‘this is going to end in tragedy’ and was convinced he was going to tragically die because his drug demons had spiralled out of control.

‘On a couple of occasions I went out for lunch with him and the next day he wouldn’t remember where we’d been or the fact that we’d met up.’
And Schofield was even considering holding an intervention because he was so concerned where Jason’s life was heading.
He added: ‘It was a shame to see someone who was always so handsome and adored, essentially coming apart at the seams.
‘I can remember saying to my wife, “You know we should do something, there must be something we can do to help”, because, I thought, eventually this is going to end up in tragedy.

Longtime friends: Phillip has been friends with Donovan since he took over from him on the West End stage in 1993 – two years before his collapse+4

‘It was an embarrassing situation to be in, but I was a drug addict at the time. I just went back to the hotel, after they’d checked me out of the hospital and got back on it.’

And Schofield is still shocked that Jason managed to survive following his hospitalisation.
He told Piers: ‘I think it was a case of stamina and luck that prevented him from dropping dead outside a club in Los Angeles.’
The former Neighbours star has now been ‘clean’ from drugs for the last 12 years since his first child was born, but he does admit he still feels the ‘temptation’.
He said: ‘Temptation is always there with everything in life, you know, it’s how you approach things and what’s important and, maybe in a funny way, I love a glass of wine now and I can still enjoy it.’
But he has managed to put his troubles behind him, having appeared in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! as well as other TV appearances such as Strictly Come Dancing, relaunched his music career and welcomed more children to his brood.
And he is now gearing up to return to the cast of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds for The New Generation Tour.
He previously played The Artilleryman in the show, but Jason will now return as Parson Nathaniel, the disturbed holy man driven to insanity by the Martian invasion of earth.

pretty harrowing stuff, eh? Drugs are a mug’s game kids.

Groves hit Froch with a perfect punch in the 1st round… Carl dropped like a rock

Froch was hurt very bad… Groves landed a few more rights before Froch figured out George’s hands were faster than his… Groves won’t have the element of surprise in a rematch — and Froch did learn Groves is very punchable if he just gets very aggressive and nasty on the inside. Froch was starting to get his ass in gear.

But Groves was lucky he didn’t get hurt too bad because of the early stoppage. Froch was coming like a freight train so it didn’t look good for him. The only advantage for Groves is he’ll be one fight more developed and mature — and Froch will be several months older. Sometimes that works.

I doubt that will be enough to turn it GG’s way… I don’t think he’s that smart.

Posted February 5, 2014 8:37 pm 


Freddie Roach Ate My Hamster

It’s all brinksmanship. Neither fighter is scared, neither wants to back down.

GG is gambling on a better offer before the deadline for purse bids. If nothing is agreed by then, he’s got a ‘take it or leave it’ 15% of the purse. For a payday possibly higher than his career earnings so far and a place at the top table if he wins, George is playing high stakes. Would he fight for 15% if his gamble doesn’t pay off? Would he be frozen out if he refuses the 15% offer & title fight? Could his ego take it?

Froch is gambling his Vegas money-spinner, which no doubt depends on his titles and an intact reputation. After the IBF ruling, Froch holds the cards. Matchroom will have to offer him something special to back down and accept less than 85% – maybe choice of venue. Criticise Froch’s stance all you like, he’s nearing retirement and 10% of a multi-million purse is worth haggling over. If this high earner falls through and Chavez loses, where does Froch go? GG vs CF is too lucrative to turn down and Froch may have to back down, could his ego take it?

@james

I’m only guessing here, obviously, but my impression from what Hearns has said/is saying, is that while he is happy to reinstate the 25% offer, Froch maybe taking the line that I suggested in my last comment. Who knows? Let’s just hope the fight is made soon, and that George acts a little more like a grown-up, and Froch a little less like a diva, in the pre-fight build-up.

Posted February 5, 2014 7:26 pm 


james

Spot on Martin but if GG comes back and says he will now accept the original offer it would be accepted in my opinion.

Posted February 5, 2014 6:28 pm 


Martin

It sounds to me like Froch is taking the position that Groves was offered 25% and turned it down, and that since he demanded the IBF to mandate the fight, and they obliged, he’d now better accept the 15% they’re stipulating.

It seems like a fair position for Froch to take, frankly. If Groves didn’t know that the IBF would recommend a 85%/25% split, he should have done his homework before he approached them. Since he has refused to show Froch any respect whatsoever from day one, and done everything he can to get under Froch’s skin and make him look bad both before and since the fight, then got the IBF to threaten to strip Froch of his title, he’s an idiot if he thinks Froch should do him any favours now. He’s made his bed and he’d better lie in it — which means accepting a 15%/85% split.

Posted February 5, 2014 5:33 pm 


james

Froch has offered him 25% and a 7 figure guarantee so GG needs to cut out the public BS and sign the contract, Its in his hands and we all know Froch fights anyone, anywhere, his record backs that up, The idea he would duck someone like GG (who hasnt really done or beaten anyone of note in the game at all) is absurd.

Posted February 5, 2014 3:45 pm 


Marilyn13

At least now Groves is seeking to have the result overturned it’s easy to interpret what’s really going on in his mind. Clearly he can’t seriously expect end up with both a rematch AND a change to a No Contest. It seems that he doesn’t fancy a rematch at a 15% purse share, so pursuing the result change is a better option. He doesn’t rate his chances in a rematch (quite wise really given his best efforts last time round weren’t quite good enough and next time Froch isn’t going to underestimate him) so was just trying to take advantage of the controversy and secure a huge payout for a much more definitive loss. With the IBF not supporting his claim for a larger slice it isn’t worth it to him any more.

Posted February 5, 2014 3:37 pm

@Anonymous – What has Froch got to be scared of?

He took the best Groves had to offer, came back and won the fight.

If he’s so scared why is he offering Groves more money than he’s ever earned in his life to fight him again?

There’s an offer on the table for Groves that earns him his biggest payday so far in his career (all this after a loss), yet he’s not signing it.

Who looks scared?

Posted February 5, 2014 3:21 pm

Groves would KO Froch next time, I don’t think Froch will fight him again. Groves had him on several occasions, but didn’t finished him off. Then Groves got tired because he used up too much nervous energy, but the fight should never have been stopped, it was far too early taking into account the beating he’d given Froch. He’s a bad ref, maybe he’s corrupt and got paid off before the fight. Wouldn’t surprise me. Next time Groves will be more composed and won’t let Froch off the hook.

Groves by KO inside 6 rounds.

I urge everyone on here to go on-line and re-watch the Froch vs Jermain Taylor fight. That is the blueprint by which to judge this whole George Groves debacle.

He did not lose unjustly. In fact the ref likely saved his career. Certainly without the refs intervention he would not be getting another crack at Froch and the biggest payday of his career.

He should be sending Howard Foster flowers and washing his car for him. Not crying to the BBBoC.

groves is sour grapes regardless of the negotiations. boxing barlow is probably right about the options as when groves split from FR WA they left on good terms which is very rare for FR WA and i thought then groves will be back soon as the face of boxnation. barlow is right If Hearn truely was looking out for froch he would let him have his bow in vegas aganist chavez jr not cash him out with groves (because he has options on him). im really starting to dislike Eeddie hearn – say what you want about Fr WA but he looks after his fighters.

boxing barlow

A lot of people commenting on here and elsewhere on the net who are not privy to the real reasons negotiations are stalling. It is not over the actual fight purse or Groves’ share of it. It is wholly down to Hearns other conditions. Hearn is desperate to not loose his cash cow Froch and needs a back up plan to cash in if Froch looses this time. Therefore the sticking point is the fact Hearn wants Groves to sign a 5 fight deal if he beats Froch. Froch is undoubtedly the number two in the division pre the Groves fight and if Groves wins he will become one of the hottest properties in boxing. Groves doesn’t want his hands tied and another promoter taking a cut of his future fights if he beats Froch so is refusing Hearns offer. The reality is that his Groves beats Froch this time round he will get big money fights in the states which will require negotiations with the likes if top rank, golden boy etc. If he is signed to Hearn that will mean two sets of promoters trying to take a slice of the pie.

If Khan couldn’t get his ‘loss’ to Peterson annulled after a positive PED test, Groves won’t get one for a hasty stoppage. I like Groves as a boxer but he’s getting a reputation as a bit of a diva & in negotiations he’s acting like a big time Charlie. If he doesn’t agree terms before the purse bid it will be 15% or he loses the title shot. You can’t play hardball with big promoters or sanctioning bodies, every fighter who tries gets ripped off or frozen out.
