Froch is such a dick. This post-fight interview says it all. HIS ass should've been on the losing end tonight. Froch is a dog in the ring, but it's hard to feel bad for him when he comes up short as he almost did tonight, but he was given a gift, and he commences to being an asshole?! Smh

coming all the way from amsterdam haha, questionable stoppage but groves turned away from froch, was the ref just supposed to let froch start beating on his side?

also whenever froch had groves on the ropes the ref intervened for whatever reason. like when groves hit froch to the back of the head, froch and went landed two shots and could of kept going, but the ref chose then to stop and warn groves. so i doubt he was in anyones pocket

Mainly do to the fact that Groves succeeded in getting into his head prefight. I figured at most it was Groves just talkin cash but he really showed something tonight. Man, I just hate when good fights are stopped prematurely in a championship fights. After tonight Froch shouldn't even have Ward's name in his mouth and just sell this rematch demand.

I didn't see it. But wait if Groves turned his back when he was hurt, that is usually taken as a sign of surrender.

he could of just been off balance, then the ref holds him and waves it off but the position he was in he couldnt protect himself a second or two would of given us a much better answer also remember virgil hunter said froch would struggle, man knows his shit

The worst premature stoppage since Tyson-Rudduck I! That was BS. Howard Foster took charge like it was two little girls in a pillow fight there. Disgusting! You can not and do not stop a fight of this magnitude when Groves and Froch fought this courageously! That ref was SHIT! I had it 5-3 for Groves at the stoppage. What a great fight! Ruined by a POS ref!

Pretty much everything I was thinking during the stoppage.

More potential controversy,

A fan of ref Howard Foster's Facebook page predicted a TKO/KO in the 9th round with a comment. Foster "liked" that comment, and it has been posted on Twitter:

This came out soon after the fight ended, seems fishy. Regardless of this, I think the ref should be investigated
