Hall of fame MC Michael Buffer will call Carl Froch and George Groves to the ring for their rematch at Wembley.

Buffer heralds the start of fights with his 'let's get ready to rumble' catchphrase and will announce the arrivals of Froch and Groves ahead of their super-middleweight clash on May 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Froch defends his WBA and IBF titles again after his controversial stoppage win over Groves last November.

Having missed the thrilling first encounter, Buffer is relishing the chance to be ringside for the return bout.

"On November 23 I was in Macau for the Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios fight and quite disappointed that I was unable to be in two places at the same time as George Groves was challenging Super Middleweight World champion Carl Froch in Manchester," said Buffer.

"Everyone knew the contest between 'The Cobra' and 'Saint' George was going be a war and it certainly did not fail to meet its expectations.

"A rematch was inevitable and logical. Everything fell into place and I now find myself looking forward to coming to London and being a part of what looks like one of the greatest boxing nights in UK history.

"London, let's get ready to rumble!"
