By Luke Furman

Promoter Frank Warren won this morning's official WBO purse bid for the light heavyweight battle between champion Nathan Cleverly (25-0, 12 KOs) and mandatory challenger Robin Krasniqi (39-2, 15 KOs). Warren, who promotes Cleverly, was represented by Dean Powell - and he secured the rights with a winning bid of $500,000. Ulf Steinforth of SES, on behalf of Krasniqi, came up short with a bid of $431,650. Warren advised the World Boxing Organization that Cleverly-Krasniqi will take place on March 16th and the location will either be in London, Liverpool or Cardiff.

[QUOTE=Tom Cruise;12834065]Moving up in competition while hes already a world champ? He should be fighting world level opposition.[/QUOTE] Exactly. This is really disappointing! He's a champion not a contender. The WBO is shyte anyways, so who cares.
