IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch (32-2, 23 KOs) will likely face either domestic rival George Groves or Mexican superstar Julio Cesar Chavez Jr next, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

“There just isn’t the commercial value in the (Andre) Ward and (Gennady) Golovkin is likely to stay at 160lbs for the time being so our options are now looking like Chavez or Groves.” Hearn told LiveFight

“I spoke to Bob Arum last night, they love the Chavez fight. July in Vegas was discussed as a possibility, potentially on HBO pay-per-view if he beats Brian Vera.”
