Billed as one of the biggest fights in British boxing history, the second installment of Carl Froch vs. George Groves has the ingredients of a classic. Now it just has to live up to the expectations. Saturdays fight for Frochs IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles will take place at Wembley Stadium in front of a record British boxing crowd of about 80,000 fans. It features an established champion against a young pretender and a score to settle after a controversial first fight. The rematch has been a promoters dream because of the dramatic first fight in Manchester last November. The 36-year-old Froch -- arguably Britains top boxer of the past five years -- was knocked down in the first round and exposed for more than half the bout by an upstart 11 years his junior. In the ninth round, Froch finally landed some meaningful punches of his own to leave Groves wobbling, but the challenger was still on his feet when the referee stepped in to end the fight. With the crowd howling in derision, it was an unfortunate way to end a memorable fight. It was no surprise that the IBF ordered a rematch after Groves made a complaint, and the clamour for Froch-Groves II was already irresistible. There will be unfinished business in London, with Groves intent on sending Froch into retirement. "Weve been working on left hooks," Groves said Thursday. "We know the left hook will work and it will be the left hook that finishes Carl Froch on Saturday." Froch was riled by the in-your-face approach of Groves during the buildup to the Manchester fight, but he clearly underestimated his rival. He ended the fight with a bruised and puffy face, his reputation slightly damaged but still with a win on his record. Robert McCracken, Frochs trainer, revealed after the fight that he knew Froch would have trouble with Groves awkward style and fast start. Groves dominated the centre of the ring, hounding Froch, and will look to do the same again on Saturday. "I gave him the advantage in the first fight, allowed him to get comfortable and let his shots go," said Froch, who has a 32-2 record, including losses to Mikkel Kessler and Andre Ward, and is contesting his 12th world title fight. "I took too many steps back but I wont be taking a backward step in this fight." Groves was jeered into the ring in Manchester and cheered out of it after his gutsy performance, which couldnt prevent a first loss in 20 professional fights. On Saturday, hell be fighting in his home city and will likely be the fans favourite. The fight has captured the British publics imagination, so much so that Wembley -- the home of English football -- was regarded as the only setting big enough to satisfy demand. The old Wembley hosted an unforgettable fight between Muhammad Ali and Henry Cooper in 1963. The last fight at Wembley was in 1995, when Frank Bruno beat Oliver McCall in a 12-round unanimous decision to capture the world heavyweight title. Many members of Englands World Cup squad will be present. As will Zara Phillips, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, and her rugby-playing husband Mike Tindall. Its considered the biggest grudge match in British boxing since the days of the Nigel Benn-Chris Eubank rivalry in the early 1990s. "Its got that air about it, the air of importance," Froch said. "With it being at the national stadium its obviously big. This is by far the biggest fight of my unbelievable career. "Its giving me the motivation and giving me the apprehension I need to perform at my best."

Winners of 15 straight, with a healthy roster, the Spurs have overtaken the Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder for the number one ranking.Football fans around the world will be disgusted with the claims that Sepp Blatter and other top FIFA officials paid themselves gargantuan bonuses, Damian Collins has told Sky Sports News HQ. The Conservative MP and member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee believes claims that Blatter, Jerome Valcke and Markus Kattner wrongly profited by £55m from the organisation poses serious questions of both FIFA and its auditors KPMG.Banned former FIFA president Blatter, former secretary general Valcke and former deputy secretary general Kattner enriched themselves, according to investigators, with a series of salary increases, bonuses and incentives in the past five years, some of which broke the law. Damian Collins is a member of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee And Collins said: Its incredibly serious and there are a couple of very important points from it.Do we seriously believe that it is only these three that knew what was going on? It poses a lot of very challenging questions of FIFA, particular of people who at on compensation committees of FIFA and saw payments being made to executives.I think it also poses difficult questions for KPMG, whove been FIFAs auditors for a long time as well. Were these payments being noted in any way? We are talking tens of millions of pounds, not small change. Change FIFA co-founder David Larkin says that sport is getting out of control I think football fans around the world will react with disgust at the way in which it appears senior FIFA executives have seen to enrich themselves with these gargantuan bonuses.ddddddddddddChange FIFA co-founder David Larkin also told Sky Sports News HQ that the revelations were stunning and that sport in general is getting out of control.The thing that is stunning is that this is an organisation thats had no transparency or accountability to the public, when in essence its the public that funds it, he said. Sepp Blatter and two others wrongly profited by £55m from FIFA It must be held accountable and transparent, and we still dont have that with Mr Infantino. We have enrichment beyond our wildest dreams, and its stunning that this would be revealed on the day when current FIFA president is under massive pressure with regards to what he did with some recordings.The first thing that I would say is that FIFA always says no, no, no - its our money. No its not. When FIFA holds a World Cup, they socialise the costs and privatise the profits. The profits come from the people.So this organisation now suggesting it can write itself cheques in secret is one more demonstration that it cannot be trusted, and its leaders cannot be trusted, and that sport is out of control. Its time to renegotiate the relationship between sport and the public.
