WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (23-0, 11KOs) is backing WBC 168-pound champion Carl Froch to win this Saturday's fight against WBA champion Andre Ward. Cleverly defends his title on February 25 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff. He hopes Froch is possibly going to move up in weight to challenge for another world title in 2012. The move would possibly set up a big British clash between Cleverly and Froch. 

"Two British world champions, it would be a great fight for the British public," he told Sky Sports News. "I know Carl himself has whispered about the fight. I think it's something that needs looking at. If it happens it's going to be a great fight, I'd look forward to that one. "

Ward, the WBA's champion, is the favorite to win, but Cleverly believes Froch has enough skill and determination to pull off the victory on American soil.

"I think Ward is going to be the favourite going into the fight," he said. "He's fighting in America, on his home turf, but you can never write off Carl Froch. He's tough, he trains well and I think he's got a great chance and could pull it off. He's got the strength to pull this off, he's a great fighter.
