IBF reject Groves second bid "85 to 15 split remains"



The IBF has just informed that the second bid by Hammersmith Super Middleweight Geroge Groves, to increase his current ranking and purse split has been REJECTED unanimously in favour of the champion Carl Froch.

"The IBF Board of Directors voted unanimously to keep the purse split at 85/15 in favor of Froch." they confirmed just now.

This adds another twist to the ongoing rematch saga, which promoter Eddie Hearn would like to make at a football stadium in late May, but so far the challenger has turned down seven figure offers for the rematch that he has campaigned for.
