more on the BBC News Channel. We are back with the late news

:00:00.:00:16.

With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:17.:00:21.

Nottingham's Carl Froch has retained his world titles

:00:22.:00:23.

He took victory in last night's rematch against George Groves

:00:24.:00:30.

Froch called it the biggest and best fight of his life,

:00:31.:00:35.

and spoke exclusively to Angela Rafferty in his only dressing

:00:36.:00:38.

It was a knockout punch with the of a world champion. Just eight rounds

:00:39.:00:53.

into the rematch, he finally silenced his challenger. It was the

:00:54.:00:58.

biggest fight of my life, the biggest occasion I've been involved

:00:59.:01:05.

in. This night means everything to me in terms of my boxing career.

:01:06.:01:09.

Wembley has never seen anything quite like it. 80,000 fans, all

:01:10.:01:14.

desperate to be part of history. They were not disappointed.

:01:15.:01:18.

Fireworks outside the ring, a fierce battle inside it. It was a bad worth

:01:19.:01:23.

?20 million. The first few rounds were understandably cagey but then

:01:24.:01:30.

came a stunning finale. So, he has done it successfully sent `

:01:31.:01:36.

defending his world title. He promised to deliver and did just

:01:37.:01:40.

that, here, in front of 80,000 fans. He is very cocky, very

:01:41.:01:45.

arrogant but I have no hard feelings. It's sport. I will let him

:01:46.:01:52.

worry about me now. The talking is over, done. It was absolutely

:01:53.:01:57.

amazing. That punch and he was gone. Justice has been served. Absolutely

:01:58.:02:04.

brilliant. I cannot remember a night like it. Barely with the gloves off

:02:05.:02:09.

before talk of one last fight in Las Vegas. Was that a proposal in there?

:02:10.:02:18.

It was a sort of. It wasn't official but I had a few words with it and I

:02:19.:02:23.

think I'm going to marry Rachel. There was no ring. He got down on

:02:24.:02:27.

one knee and said, Rachel, I have not got a ring, but will you marry

:02:28.:02:33.

me? OK. An unbelievable night after a truly remarkable fight.

:02:34.:02:39.

The man who nurtured Carl Froch's amateur career says he'd like to see

:02:40.:02:43.

Dale McPhilbin believes there's still a few bouts left

:02:44.:02:49.

Dale's head coach of the boxing club Carl started at, and says he'd love

:02:50.:02:55.

to see him take on Mikkel Kessler, the Dane who defeated Froch in 2010.

:02:56.:03:00.

Kessler, without doubt. They are both professionals and both respect

:03:01.:03:10.

each other. Once those to get in the ring, they are true professionals

:03:11.:03:14.

and you would see an outstanding contest.

:03:15.:03:18.

A charity fund`raiser who previously ran from Derbyshire all

:03:19.:03:20.

the way to his native Switzerland is planning a new challenge.

:03:21.:03:23.

This time to cycle more than a thousand miles.

:03:24.:03:26.

It's to fund research into cancer after his family, and close friends,

:03:27.:03:29.

Two years ago, this man set off to run a marathon day for a month. It

:03:30.:03:42.

took him from his home near Derby to his native village in Switzerland.

:03:43.:03:48.

It raised ?50,000 for cancer research but now, Gerard and a group

:03:49.:03:51.

of friends, are planning an even longer challenge. They will cycle

:03:52.:03:56.

from Derbyshire to Monte Carlo. Most people cannot quite believe we are

:03:57.:04:04.

doing it. We can't. Everyone is very supportive. I will close family have

:04:05.:04:09.

had the same hurt from cancer. My wife had cancer and is now

:04:10.:04:14.

thankfully over it. My mother died of cancer two months ago. Lots of

:04:15.:04:19.

our friends have had cancer and most have survived, but there is still a

:04:20.:04:22.

huge need to raise lots of money in order to find the cure. Our aim is

:04:23.:04:27.

to raise around ?10,000 but it would be nice to do like I did when I went

:04:28.:04:34.

to Switzerland, to beat that. They will have to complete around 1000

:04:35.:04:38.

miles over the course of nine days. So, until they set off later this

:04:39.:04:44.

month, there is plenty of training to be done.

:04:45.:04:47.

Almost 1,500 people have been running, swimming and cycling in

:04:48.:04:50.

The Outlaw Half`Triathlon was based at Holme Pierrepont

:04:51.:04:54.

The course included a 56`mile cycle ride around the countryside

:04:55.:04:59.

The winning team completed the challenge in just over four hours.

:05:00.:05:04.

Let's see if the sunshine's lasting into the week, with Sara.

:05:05.:05:12.

Good evening. We finally saw the sunshine today. It has been a very

:05:13.:05:19.

nice day across the East Midlands. We are starting to lose the clearer

:05:20.:05:23.

skies now. The cloud is increasing and a weather front is starting to

:05:24.:05:27.

work its way in from the West. A mild night with temperatures

:05:28.:05:30.

dropping to a minimum of 12 ulcers. Judge tomorrow, that weather front

:05:31.:05:34.

slowly works its way eastwards. It will produce the bottom of the burst

:05:35.:05:39.

of rain at times. It will give us a pretty wet afternoon tomorrow. With

:05:40.:05:42.

all the cloud cover as well, temperatures will reach a maximum of

:05:43.:05:47.

16 Celsius. Not as warm as today. The Outlook: The first week of June

:05:48.:05:51.

will be rather unsettled at times. Further outbreaks of rain.

:05:52.:05:57.

I will see you later on. For now, goodbye.

:05:58.:06:07.

Hello. Most of us have enjoyed at least one day of lovely weather this

:06:08.:06:13.

weekend. That weather will be harder to come by this week. It has been up

:06:14.:06:19.

and down. Yes, rain or showers at times. Drier, sunny weather, turning

:06:20.:06:25.

cooler. Signs are that by the end of the week temperatures will recover.

:06:26.:06:29.

We have seen rain today in Glasgow, Edinburgh, western fringes of the UK

:06:30.:06:34.

too. The cloud will spread east overnight, with further outbreaks of

:06:35.:06:39.

rain into the west. Temperatures are in double figures as Monday begins.

:06:40.:06:43.

We get the sunshine - a lot of cloud around. Some patchy rain. You can

:06:44.:06:47.

see there are gaps within this. It is not raining everywhere. There may

:06:48.:06:52.

be glimmers of brightness to begin the day.

:06:53.:06:54.
