Carl Froch's all-British showdown with George Groves will take place in Manchester on November 23.

The super-middleweights will go head-to-head at the Phones 4u Arena, where David Haye and Tyson Fury are fighting next month.

"This 'Battle of Britain' is a fascinating fight between a true legend of British boxing in Carl Froch and a superb young talent in George Groves; it's going to be some atmosphere, some occasion."
Eddie Hearn

Froch has put his WBA and IBF world titles on the line against the unbeaten Groves, with both of them now boxing out of Matchroom Sport.

"I'm delighted to bring this event to Manchester on November 23," said promoter Eddie Hearn.

"This 'Battle of Britain' is a fascinating fight between a true legend of British boxing in Carl Froch and a superb young talent in George Groves; it's going to be some atmosphere, some occasion.

"Phone lines, Twitter and emails haven't stopped for tickets since we confirmed the fight."

Hearn is expecting another sell-out and says tickets will go on sale on September 17.

It will be the first time both have boxed since Froch beat Mikkel Kessler at the end of May.

Groves was the chief support to that fight but had been calling out Britain's number one long before that night at the O2 Arena.

This will be the first time Froch has boxed at the Manchester venue, with Groves appearing twice there - and winning them both.
