(USA Today) English boxer Carl Froch retained his WBA and IBF super middleweight titles Saturday night at Wembley Stadium by knocking out George Groves in the 8th round.
Froch beat Groves last year by TKO, but controversy surrounded the fight as many believed that the referee ended the fight too early. There was nothing controversial about Froch's devastating right cross that electrified Wembley.
After the fight, Froch dropped to one knee and proposed to his girlfriend, model Rachael Cordingley. Froch said after the fight that the proposal was "unofficial," because he couldn't get a ring in time.
Via the Daily Mail:
"I did ask Rachael a sneaky question after the fight but it's not official. She said, 'Yes.' I told her how much I love her…. I couldn't sort a ring out."
