Carl Froch Brutally Trolls George Groves About Wembley Stadium Knockout

It wouldn't be a Wembley Stadium outing without Carl Froch reminding George Groves about THAT knockout.

Over the weekend, Anthony Joshua defended his heavyweight crowns and before he got inside the ring, Froch was up to his usual antics, poking fun out of former adversary Groves.

The retired Nottingham-fighter strolled around the squared circle before showing the exact spot where he flattened Groves, ruthlessly tagging him on Instagram.

Who could forget that knockout?!

Froch and Groves were involved in a thrilling bout in Manchester before re-matching at the home of English football in 2014.

In their second meeting, Froch famously slept Groves with a devastating right-hand in the eighth round to hold onto his super-middleweight world titles.

And he hasn't let Groves forget about it.

Meanwhile, Froch was in attendance for Joshua's 22nd professional bout. The unified heavyweight champion and mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin went to war.

The Russian fighter tagged Joshua, busting up his nose in the process.

Though Joshua picked up the pace and began landing, ultimately catching Povetkin with a brutal left-hook then a straight right-hand eventually stopping him in the seventh round with a flurry of stinging shots.

After trading leather, the pair of combatants brilliantly embraced in a great show of respect.

Joshua visited the challengers changing room after inflicting him with his second professional loss, and the heavyweight king paid respects to his opponent.

The pair hugged, shook hands and had a conversation.

"Just respect, you good from amateur. Very consistent," Joshua said.

Before saying. "I wanna come to Russia." Povetkin replied: "Anytime."

Class show of respect considering the two were beating the living sh*t out of each other just a few hours earlier.
