Froch dismissive of DeGale, Groves devastated but graceful in defeat.
Carl Froch successfully defended his WBA and IBF belts at Wembley on Saturday night after knocking out rival George Groves in the eighth round in their highly anticipated rematch.
The 36-year-old had insisted that his opponent would not go the distance with him, and he delivered on that promise after catching Groves with a heavy right hand which sent him to the canvas with referee Charlie Fitch calling it off almost immediately.
With James DeGale winning his IBF eliminator fight with Brandon Gonzales earlier in the night, it had been expected that Froch would be facing another domestic dust-up, but it appears that he is keeping his options open for now and will push to get a dream fight in Las Vegas.
Nevertheless, Groves gracefully accepted defeat and even joked on Twitter regarding the knockout, but he is still confident that under the guidance of new promoter Kalle Sauerland, he will be able to bounce back and one day realise his dream of becoming a world champion.
It was undoubtedly a memorable night for all connected on Saturday, with Froch entering the ring to jeering but turning things around after delivering a clinical finish that everyone had hoped for the first time round.
However, that would have never allowed the pair to participate in the biggest night in British boxing history, and now Froch will look to take a break before making his next move, while Groves will start to rebuild after what is a devastating loss.
