Light heavyweight Nathan Cleverly continues to toil away and await his shot at one of the big name fighters in his division. In February 2012, he’ll have a homecoming fight in Cardiff, and he’s already in his preparations for that bout. Right here, you can watch a video interview with Cleverly, where he discusses that fight in front of his hometown faithful, all of the big names in the U.K. fight scene who have been suffering setbacks, the guys he’d like to get in the ring, and more.
Cleverly wants any of the big names at light heavyweight, including Bernard Hopkins. He’d also like to face Beibut Shumenov. And there’s always an all-UK meeting between him and Carl Froch, with Froch having just lost in the Super Six to Andre Ward. With Froch’s loss, Khan’s loss the week before, and David Haye’s poor showing this summer against Wladimir Klitschko, Cleverly finds himself in the position as one of the top guys in any weight class in the U.K. right now, and he’s trying to represent with that and continue adding to his accolades.
He’s hoping for a big year in 2012, and hopes he can finally land some of those big fights. Enjoy the video Cleverly interview above and keep on checking back with ProBoxing-Fans.com for more of the latest breaking boxing news.
