Carl Froch will put his IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles on the line against George Groves on Saturday evening - and Sky Sports will be there every step of the way.

Not only will we bring you live and exclusive coverage of the mouth-watering Manchester clash on Sky Sports HD Box Office, but we also have a host of support programmes across the week to get you right in the mood for fight night.


Mon: The Tactics
Tue: Behind The Ropes: Froch
Wed: Behind The Ropes: Groves
Thu: Ringside: 6.30pm
Fri: Final Countdown
All showing at 7pm on Sky Sports 1 unless stated otherwise

On Monday, Sky Sports faces Glenn McCrory, Johnny Nelson, Richie Woodhall and Nick Halling will dissect the game-plans both pugilists may deploy at the Phones4u Arena in Froch v Groves: The Tactics.

Plus, on Tuesday and Wednesday, we will get inside the camps of the Cobra and the Saint - whose animosity was apparent when they set foot in the Ringside studio not long ago - in our special Behind the Ropes shows.

We will see what lengths Froch and Groves have gone to to ensure they are in peak condition for Saturday's bout, and hear from some of the figures closest to the British super-middleweight stars.

Thursday, as usual, is Ringside night, and Messrs Smith and Nelson will be up in Manchester to gauge the mood of the city as Froch-Groves edges closer and to chat to some of boxing's biggest names.

On Friday, meanwhile, we will look at all the late headlines and show you clips from the Matchroom fighters' weigh-in in Froch v Groves: The Final Countdown - and then it's time for the boxers to lace up the gloves.

Froch-Groves begins at 6pm on Saturday on Sky Sports HD Box Office, with a stellar supporting cast, including Anthony Joshua, Anthony Crolla and Scott Quigg, getting things underway.

After that, though, it's the big one...
