Calzaghe Backs Cleverly To Make Things Right at Cruiser

UK legend Joe Calzaghe feels Nathan Cleverly will get right back in the mix when he moves up to the cruiserweight division against Australia’s Daniel Ammann on November 30 in a challenge for the vacant Commonwealth cruiserweight title. Cleverly is looking to bounce back after suffering the first loss of his career, a TKO defeat to Sergey Kovalev in August. Calzaghe is confident that Cleverly will learn from the loss to Kovalev and look better when he moves up the much heavier weight, a 25-pound leap. Cleverly will have to put on the pounds to compete with fighters who will come in at over 200-pounds on fight night. 

‘He’s a big lad,’ said Calzaghe to Daily Mail. 'He did say he felt quite weak making the weight and didn’t know how long he’d be at that weight for. But there’s a big gap (25lbs) between the weights so he’ll have to fill out. I was at the (Kovalev) fight. It was disappointing. Maybe in hindsight he shouldn’t have took the fight, you know, but he’s young, he’s still learning. It’s harsh, he’s frustrated, he knows he didn’t turn up on the night and fight the way he should have boxed. That’s boxing, I suppose.'

‘The sign of a champion is how you get back in the game and learn from your mistakes and go from there, you know. Of course he should carry on, he had one loss, he was a world champion at a young age, is an exciting fighter and is still improving. It’s one loss. He’s going to be despondent, he just lost but he’s obviously got heart. He wants to come back and improve from that, and be champion again. I think he’ll improve and learn what he should be doing to improve his game.’

Cruiserweight isn't a serious weight division. Maybe its a stop-gap for him to move onto heavyweight

[QUOTE=AztecWanker]Whatever, son. Marco Huck and Ola Afolabi easily make him squeal like a pig, I reckon.[/QUOTE] Did you just try to son me? Pathetic.

So he is going to bring all that raw power to Cruiserweight.....yeah, right. Some fighters bring their power up with them but how do you do that when you have little power....seems like a big mistake.

Ya know what? **** it. Afolabi-Cleverly would be a pretty fun fight.

He doesn't have enough pop & his style is all so wrong. He isn't going to beat anybody of note. These guys are mainly heavyweights cutting to the limit as they're too small for the 'super HWs' Dorticos, Kudryashov, Masternak, Drozd, Huck, Afolabi, Chakhkiev, Wlodacyrzk, Arslan, Jones, Alekseev, ...
