Sky Sports Box Office is the only place to watch the eagerly-anticipated rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves this Saturday May 31st.

Unless you have a ticket for the bout at Wembley Stadium, you'll have to tune in on satellite TV - and this requires a £16.95 pay-per-view booking fee.

One of the most-hyped fights in many years, Froch v Groves II comes after an initial meeting between the two Brits in November 2013.

With the WBA and IBF super-middleweight world titles on the line, challenger Groves floored Froch in the first round.

However, the champion ultimately prevailed, with referee Howard Foster stepping in to stop the fight in the ninth round.

Many observers felt the decision was premature, particularly with Groves judged to be ahead on points after eight rounds.

And amid widespread calls for a rematch, the fighters have been only too happy to oblige - no doubt swayed by the guarantee of a huge pay day.

Some 60,000 tickets for the contest were sold in under an hour, with another 20,000 made available a month after the initial release.

This means Froch v Groves II will have the highest post-war attendance for a boxing match in Britain.

Both fighters have been hyping up the fight through a bitter war of words in the media, generating plenty of interest in the bout.

As such, a huge TV audience is expected for the fight on Sky Sports Box Office.

Also on the bill this Saturday, James DeGale will face Brandon Gonzales in a title eliminator.

The winner will go on to fight either Groves or Froch for the IBF and WBA super middleweight titles.

Anthony Joshua will also appear on the undercard at Wembley, taking on Matt Legg.
