Wembley to host Froch-Groves bout

Wembley will host the rematch between WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion Carl Froch and George Groves on May 31, with promoters expecting to sell more tickets than for any post-World War Two fight in Britain.
The fight will be the first staged at the new national stadium, which re-opened in 2007 and seats 90,000.
"I think we have got the product to fill stadiums like this. When you get an opportunity to do so, you have to grab it with both hands," said promoter Eddie Hearn.
The two first clashed in November when Groves (25) was controversially stopped by 36-year-old Froch in the ninth of 12 rounds.
