Froch and Groves hit weight target for grudge rematch (photos/video)

Carl Froch and George Groves weighed in for their super-middleweight unification on Friday, which takes place on Saturday night at a sell-out Wembley Arena.

Both came in comfortably under the 168lb limit and have now completed the pre-fight formalities for what is set to be another explosive encounter.

The two fighters briefly exchanged words at the head-to-head, but nothing nasty this time around, as the warriors flexed their muscles to the huge crowd that gathered at the arena.

Another 80,000 fans are set to pack the National Stadium once the first bell goes as Froch puts his IBF and WBA super-middleweight belts up for grabs against the brash up and comer.

Groves came to the weigh-in looking relaxed with his headphones around his neck, although Froch was equally calm, and it is still hard to tell who has the upperhand going into the pay-per-view event.

Official Weights from Wembley Stadium, London:

Carl Froch: 167.9 lbs. (WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion)

George Groves: 166.4 lbs. (challenger)
