The massive UK super middleweight clash between world champion Carl Froch and challenger George Groves is taking place in less than two weeks, giving us just enough time to examine the stats on both these fighters.

Froch first picked a global strap in 2008 in a fight for a vacant belt against Jean Pascal. 'The Cobra's' nine fights since then have all been for world titles, with him winning seven bouts and losing two. The two loses were on points against world class operators Andre Ward and Mikkel Kessler.

Froch avenged the defeat to Kessler in his last bout by winning on points himself this time, but his two wins before that were devastating ko's of Lucian Bute and Yusaf Mack. His recent form is product of a more aggressive approach as he had ko'd only one opponent (Jermain Taylor in round 12) in his seven previous world matches.

The stats on Groves are less insightful because the quality of opposition he has faced has been generally poor. The Londoner has an impressive ko% of 79% but, perhaps intuitively, the two opponents Groves didn't ko in his last 10 fights were the best two, James DeGale and Glen Johnson.

That stat might suggest more though - that, potentially, Groves will only ko opponents he dominates - but, either way, the chances that he can take out Froch are slim.
