Carl Froch pleased to get booed at weigh-in

Carl Froch admits that he is pleased to get booed by the crowd during the weigh-in ahead of his Wembley showdown with George Groves.

IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch has admitted that he enjoyed getting booed by sections of a 4,000-strong crowd at the weigh-in ahead of Saturday's showdown with George Groves.

Both fighters made the weight in London in preparation for tomorrow's clash at Wembley.

Before Froch took to the scales, the Nottingham-born fighter was greeted with a chorus of boos from some spectators.

"This weigh-in is bigger than most fights, a few people were booing me which is great, it all adds to the atmosphere - most of my crowd will be there tomorrow," Froch told Sky Sports News.

"I am just focusing, tunnel vision, on what I have to do tomorrow night. Last time I got sidetracked, I wasn't even at the races last time but this time you are going to see me at my best, focus, control and concentration are the key words."

The rematch was granted earlier this year after November's controversial ninth-round stoppage, which gave Froch the victory.
