Retired WBA and IBF Super Middleweight Champion Carl Froch tips his former rival George Groves as favourite for the upcoming World Boxing Super Series that starts next month.

The retired Middleweight Champion who had ones held the WBC ended his bitter rivalry with Groves with a knockout win back in 2014 and the 40 year Old believes that the competition can significantly advance Groves and his rivals' careers.

"It would be very interesting with those three," Froch said. "It's out of Groves, Eubank Jnr and Callum Smith to win it. Maybe Groves is the favourite, but not a strong favourite.

"Callum Smith's been tapping on the door now for a WBC world-title shot: he was lined up to fight Anthony Dirrell, Andre Dirrell's brother, and that's for some reason not happened.

"It's a good little tournament. It'll be over quicker than what I was involved in, the Super Six World Boxing Classic a few years ago: that went on for over two years, it was a bit of a drawn-out process and that killed it a little bit, but this one, I'm excited about it.

"I'm looking forward to watching them mix it up."

"It's a good tournament to be involved in in terms of experience," Froch added. "I know they're all getting paid well, and when they come out of the tournament, whoever wins it will have the titles and probably be deemed the best super middleweight in the world.

"It won't do them any harm, that's for sure, and it's guaranteeing a couple of good fights."
