Groves has predicted that he will secure victory in the opening rounds of the contest, but Froch has encouraged the challenger to meet him in the middle of the ring after the first bell.
The 36-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I've experienced his irritating attitude and his attempts to get under my skin, and they worked last time - they really wound me up and frustrated me.
"It isn't going to happen twice. I've learned from that and evolved, and it's all about me this time. I'm going to be turning up in the best possible shape that I could be in for this fight.
"He is talking about a three-round fight, but that suits me down to the ground. He's in trouble if he tries to do that, because the sooner he tries to mix with me, the fight is over in my favour."
The first encounter between the two Brits ended in controversial fashion when referee Howard Foster deemed Groves unfit to continue in the ninth round, despite the Londoner appearing to still be active in the fight.
