Danny Dyer wants George Groves to beat Carl Froch this time - so we can have a trilogy.

The EastEnders star and boxing fan admits he wants the Londoner to avenge that controversial loss last November.

"They have both got so much to prove and so much to lose, I cannot wait. I am salivating"

Dyer was not impressed with Froch's post-fight reaction but simply wants to see Groves come out on top at Wembley, so British boxing will get an even bigger fight after that.

"I think they are both going to come in with a different attitude," he told Ringside.

"I think it's in everyone's interest if he (Groves) nicks it because it sets up the third one - not that anyone is going to jump down on the canvas

"I think it would be a beautiful thing if Groves nicks it and we get a decider.

"They have both got so much to prove and so much to lose, I cannot wait. I am salivating!"


Dyer, who has met both men and even appeared on Soccer AM with Groves just before the first fight, was "obsessed" by that Manchester showdown.

But he believes that the first-round knockdown might well have shown that the 36-year-old world champion Froch is just past his best - and that will work in the challenger's favour.

"It's the young gun against the older fighter who has sort of done it all, against the guy who is up and coming and wants it all," he said.

"He is a great fighter. He has been around for a long time and he's proved himself in that fight but I love George."
