LONDON- Super confident challenger George Groves has vowed to knock out champion Carl Froch with a left hook tomorrow night at Wembley.

Froch, known as the Cobra, defends his IBF and regular WBA super middleweight titles against Groves in one of the most eagerly anticipated rematches in recent history.

Nottingham's Froch, 36, won by controversial ninth round referee's stoppage in Manchester last November.

But now Londoner Groves, 26, says he will delight the 80,000 strong crowd at the national football stadium in the English capital with a spectacular finish.

"It'll be the left hook that finishes Carl Froch on Saturday night," Groves said at the final pre-fight press conference.

Froch, a three time super middleweight champion fired back, claiming he had been there and done it all before.

"Hardcore boxing fans know what I'm about. When I turn up in the shape I'm in now you've seen it time and time again against top opposition, I've proved I can perform at the top level,"

"I mix it with the elite boxers in the world.

"I'm bringing that confidence and experience into this fight on top of being at absolutely unbelievable shape which will allow me to perform at my best for the whole duration of the fight.

"But I'm convinced this fight won't go the distance and that George Groves won't hear the final bell."
