Carl Froch has warned George Groves he won't "make the same mistake twice" ahead of their rematch at Wembley on Saturday.

Froch secured a controversial ninth round stoppage win over the Londoner in Manchester in November, but Groves was ahead on all three judges' scorecards when the fight was ended prematurely by the referee.

Froch was sent to the canvas in the first round in November and the 36-year-old has accused Groves of "dining out" on that early exchange.

"George Groves has been going to the opening of an envelope, dining out on his round one knockdown and giving it large," Froch told the Nottingham Post.

"But that's his prerogative if he is enjoying the moment, his little time, his little five minutes of fame then you know he should do he should enjoy it, but really he should be concentrating on his fighting and his boxing."

The build up to their first meeting was punctuated with heated verbal exchanges between the two boxers and Froch concedes that may have impacted on his performance.

However, the IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion has warned Groves he won’t make the same mistakes at Wembley and has promised an improved display.

"I was probably thinking too much about George Groves in the first fight in the training camp, on the first build up to the fight," he added.

"That was part of his game plan - to get under my skin and wind me up.

"It was effective and it worked but it will not happen twice. No chance.

"I might be stupid for the first one but I'm not double stupid, and I won't make the same mistake twice."
