Cleverly: Sergey Kovalev's Punches Were Like a Hammer
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

This past Saturday, Nathan Cleverly fifth defense of his WBO-light heavyweight title ended in disaster as he suffered a crushing fourth-round knockout defeat against Kovalev at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff. Cleverly is still coming to terms with this devastating defeat and has suggested there might be some major changes after losing his unbeaten record.

Kovalev has 20 stoppages in his 22 wins and Cleverly's granite chin could not withstand his concussive power. Cleverly was floored twice in the third round and revealed that the punches felt like being hit with a 'hammer'.

He told Boxing News: "I suppose I wasn't surprised because with his record it was inevitable that he was a banger and every shot he threw was a thudding shot. It was like a hammer. He wasn't rapid fast, he had good timing, good distance and his punches were just so hard ... His jab, his right hand. Just when he caught you on the shoulder he would have an impact and he was just clubbing me."

I dare say an easy nights work. clev showed he needs to develop an inside game and put some power in, he doesn't have the speed or chin of calzaghe, but unlike khan I believe he has the intellect to change. we will s...

Cleverly humiliated Wales and Nate himself
comment by JamesEarl, on 08-20-2013
Cleverly the Wales Wimp humiliated his country and humiliated himself in the beatdown collapse against Kovalev. A sad display of utter weakness and a definite lack of boxing talent devoid of power with no defense. Sad and disgusting for a supposed Champion calling out the great Cark Froch.
