Joey Barton knows what it’s like to win at Wembley in front of a baying crowd. The controversial midfielder helped secure QPR’s dramatic, cash-rich return to the Premier League last weekend with a 1-0 win over Derby in the play-off final.
And ow he’s backing Carl Froch to do the business over fierce rival George Groves when they get in the ring on Saturday.
Couldn't back against Froch. GG hit him with his best shot. He got up and still stopped him, albeit controversially. Can't wait.

The pair go head-to-head in was is billed as Froch vs Groves II Unfinished Business.
Froch took the bout on a contentious 9th-round stoppage last November but with both his IBF and WBA super-middleweight titles on the line, it’s shaping up to be the fight of the year in front of a record 80,000 people at Wembley.
