Froch v Groves: Video special

Carl Froch, who puts his WBA and IBF 12-stone titles on the line, and challenger George Groves both gave Sky Sports extended interviews ahead of the bout and you can view what they had to say by simply clicking on their names.

The pair have engaged in a sustained war of words during the pre-fight build-up and this all came to a head during Thursday's head-to-head press conference, which you can also watch here.

There's been plenty of reaction to those events, with trainers Paddy Fitzpatrick and Rob McCracken both giving their views while Sky Sports' Fraiser Dainton was joined by Jamie Moore and Spencer Oliver to offer their opinions.

British boxing legend Ricky Hatton, James DeGale and Richie Woodhall linked up to give their views on how each fighter should approach the fight from a tactical point of view which also makes very interesting viewing.

Earlier this week, Froch spoke about his opponent's goading tactics - shuch as their studio spat in the Ringside studio last week - and also revealed what actually happened in their now infamous sparring session in Sheffield three years.

Groves told Sky Sports that if anyone is being disrespectful then it's Froch, which is a view contested by the latter's trainer Rob McCracken.

Whoever is to blame for the bad blood, boxing promoter Eddie Hearn insists he's never seen the champion so motivated as he bids to silence his younger challenger, who is the outsider with Sky Bet.

The unbeaten Groves was also underdog ahead of his victory against DeGale two years ago but the man he beat that night is tipping Froch for victory and also wants to face the winner.

Plenty of other experts have had their say so check out our full boxing video index, which will be continually updated right up until fight night before footage of all the reaction comes flooding in.
