“You have to go back a long way to see a fight in the UK fought in front of so many fans, so it’s set to be an unmissable event for fight fans.”

Froch sparked controversy on Monday after he shoved Groves at the Wembley press conference on Monday.

And Groves said: “He’s just shown that he’s unprofessional because he just pushed me when we tried to do a head-to-head.

“He’s struggling to hold it together right now and I don’t blame him. I understand why. He’s in a fight that he can’t possibly win.”
