Boxing fans notice Froch mistakenly says Groves was knocked out instead of Lucas Browne – while stood next to ex-rival


CARL FROCH hilariously said that Dave Allen knocked out George Groves instead of Lucas Browne in the main event at the O2 on Saturday.

Former two rivals couldn’t help but exchanged jibes while doing punditry for Sky Sports yesterday night.

Froch, 41, has been well known for recalling his famous, second bout with Groves at Wembley Stadium in 2014.

He retained his WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles by finishing the Saint with a spectacular KO in front of 80,000 people.

The pair met again in the Sky Sports studio, doing punditry job for Allen’s third-round victory over Browne on Saturday.

And as the Doncaster bruiser was dealing his brutal, fight-ending body shot, Froch mistakenly said it was Groves being knocked out at the O2, not Browne.

The baffled former WBA super-middleweight champ – whose January retirement announcement was mocked by the Cobra – was standing just next to him.

But it wasn’t the only happy coincidence that took place between the two gentlemen behind the mics that night.

Groves had a go at Froch himself, giving his own version of the events of their famous Wembley bout in 2014 – which ended with Froch’s blow later named as Knockout of the Year by The Ring.

He said: “Did I ever tell you about the time I retired Carl Froch in front of 80,000 people?

“I let him throw a peach of a right hand.

“After that it was all downhill from there for him and he said, ‘I’m gonna have to pack it in.’”

Froch did hung up his gloves a year after ending his feud with Groves, saying he had “nothing left to prove”.
