Rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves set for May 31
British fighters Carl Froch and George Groves have agreed to a rematch following their controversial super-middleweight title fight in November.
Froch retained his WBA and IBF titles with a ninth-round stoppage against Groves in Manchester on Nov. 23.
Groves launched an appeal, saying referee Howard Foster stopped the fight prematurely, and the IBF then ordered a rematch.
Their second clash will take place on May 31 when Froch's IBF and WBA titles will be at stake again. No further details were provided on Thursday.
"The unanswered questions from the first fight may now be answered," promoter Eddie Hearn said. "Get ready for a whirlwind of a build-up and an event and fight for the ages.''
