This Saturday sees one of the most highly anticipated fights for a long while as Froch and Groves meet again.

Froch underestimated Groves last time and there is certainly no love lost between the two since the last meeting, they genuinely don’t like each other.

I feel Froch is the better fighter, he possesses more skill than Groves,but Groves surprised a lot of people last time as he really put up a fight against Froch as many thought he would have an easy night, but I still think that Froch has that little bit of extra skill and experience to get him out of tight situations.

The fight will be very tight and Groves will certainly have to pull out the performance of his life if he stands any chance of winning. I’m going for a round 10 knockout for Froch.

There was a lot of controversy at this week’s Monaco Grand Prix.

Although there was no controversy in the race, the final practice round was an interesting watch as Rosberg’s tactical spin-off prevented Hamilton from beating his fastest lap time and therefore gaining pole position.

Rosberg did end up winning the race and the celebration that followed showed that the two drivers don’t really have a relationship just yet.

The celebration seemed to provoke some conspiracy that Rosberg did in fact crash his car to prevent his teammate from gaining pole position.

Although we see Formula One as a team sport, there is a lot of rivalry within the team which can be a good thing, as two members of the same team will be driving the same car and will be eager to prove which one of the drivers truly has the best ability.

This week has been full of drama and heartbreak in the footballing world, mainly in the Football League play-offs.

Leyton Orient, who were one of the favourites for promotion at the start of the season, came up against Rotherham United at Wembley in the League One final.

Orient went 2-0 up, both goals against the run of play, but a quickfire two goals in five minutes from Rotherham put them on level terms which took the game to penalties.

Rotherham won on penalties and I feel for former Boro boss Russell Slade, but in the end the deserving team won.

QPR played Derby in the Championship play-offs, and the Rams were the better side for the majority of the game.

But they couldn’t find the penetration and QPR ended up netting against the run of play, which was harsh on Derby.

Performance of the Week:

Jonny Wilkinson, who shone in Toulon’s Heineken Cup victory against Saracens.
