Cleverly Feels Career Took Off After Leaving Calzaghe

WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly says he has gone from "strength to strength" since father Vince became his coach. Cleverly, 24, quit Enzo Calzaghe's stable in 2008 and has secured World, European, Commonwealth and British titles in less than three years. He will defend his WBO belt against Tony Bellew in Liverpool on Saturday.

"My career has really developed since I changed camps and [started] being trained by my dad," said Cleverly to BBC Sport. "My boxing has gone from strength to strength. My power's improved, my confidence levels have increased and the levels of my performances have increased. I'm enjoying my boxing now."
