Froch told Sky Spots News: "Going over to America to fight in Las Vegas is something that all British pros with big aspirations to do big things in boxing [want to do].
"If I've got two fights this year – and I usually do fight twice a year – one of those I think should be George Groves and one should be Chavez Jr. But probably not in that order, Chavez Jr is the next fight, the big fight that we're closer to doing.
"I spoke to my promoter Eddie Hearn yesterday and that fight is pretty much nailed-on as being done and I'm happy with it."
Froch's last fight was a controversial stoppage victory over Groves back in November.
