This Friday Night, AWE (formerly Wealth TV) is pleased to announce the encore presentation of one of the year’s most controversial fights, Carl Froch vs. George Groves. The bout saw Carl Froch retain his IBF/WBA Super Middleweight title with a controversial 9th round stoppage over George Groves.
The fight will be replayed in its entirety on the special hour-long broadcast this Friday night at 11 pm ET/ 8 pm PT.
The fight that took place on November 23rd in Manchester, England saw Groves knock down Froch in the 1st round, and then build up a lead on the scorecards.

“People are still talking about this bout almost two weeks later,”said AWE President Charles Herring. “The match was a terrific fight before the all the controversy and we are excited to bringing the boxing fans the encore presentation of this highly controversial world title bout.”
