Cleverly Staying Put: I'm Standing By Frank Warren!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Frank Warren has taken a few bumps since the start of the year. Boxer Tony Bellew, George Groves and Ricky Burns have all jumped ship to promotional rival Eddie Hearn. One boxer who has no intention of leaving Warren's side is WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (25-0, 12KOs), who headlines Warren's Wembley Arena card on April 20th.

“Things haven’t been great for Frank in the past week, I’m sure he’d say that himself, but I have no desire to seek a move away from him. Times are tough with the current economic climate and it’s unfortunate with certain fighters getting frustrated when bills are postponed, but that’s life and that is boxing," Cleverly told Gavin Glicksman of The Sun.

“But me personally? I am staying put, I feel loyalty to Frank because he’s stayed loyal to me. He’s survived rough patches before and will again. I know from experience he is the man who can get a fight made with Hopkins and Golden Boy.”

Probably a very smart move.... .....Warren will be hurting after a series of high profile and costly defections and eager to prove that he is still a major player who can put on the kind of show that brings out…

[quote=yoz] He has no choice. MatchRoom won't touch him (they have Bellew and Froch in their stable) and Hennessy can't afford him. [/quote] matchroom could still take him on see if Bellew can pick up a title and feature them…
