Froch insists Groves will “fall apart again” and he will finish the job.
Carl Froch has warned British rival George Groves that he is training like a challenger rather than the champion this time round and insists that he will not make the same mistakes again.
The pair will meet in their highly-anticipated rematch at Wembley Stadium on May 31, and with a crowd of 80,000 expected, Froch insists that he will be in prime condition as well as having the right mentality ahead of the clash.
The Nottingham-born star has admitted that his performance in the first fight was the worst possible despite claiming a controversial ninth-round stoppage with many agreeing that it was stopped too quickly.
Nevertheless, Froch is confident that he will be able to put Groves down again and this time there will be no doubts.
“I am in a very, very good place,” he said. “I’ve not felt like this since the Lucian Bute fight and the difference for this fight compared to the first is that I am training as a challenger not as a champion,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“There is motivation now and there’s a fire and a buzz about me which just wasn’t there when I fought George the first time.
“Everybody told me it was a mismatch and regardless of whether George thought the fight was stopped early, I still won.
“But there will be no dispute this time. The training for this fight has been intense and my body is hurting, but it will be worth it.
“George fell apart in the two rounds I came back at him on what was my worst possible night.
“He will fall apart again I am telling you now, but this time I won’t make the same mistakes as I did before.
“I know and he knows that he doesn’t have the capability to tough it out with me.”
Froch went on to insist that money is no motivation to him in this fight despite the fact that he will likely be rewarded financially given the scale of the clash with not only a sold-out Wembley but also the pay-per-view figures from around the world.
The WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion insists that this is all to do with his legacy and making history, and ultimately people will remember who won the fight rather than who made the most money.
The 36-year-old recently unfollowed his rival on Twitter, and claims that he was bored of his direct messaging which he labelled “childish” and questioned how Groves could challenge his professionalism given his own antics.
