Cleverly vs Simcic in Play For Cardiff's Motorpoint in Oct.

By Shaun Brown

BoxingScene.com understands that Nathan Cleverly’s next defense of his WBO light heavyweight title will be against Denis Simcic at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena in October.

Simcic, a German based Slovenian, is currently ranked number three by the WBO and boasts a record of 28 wins, 1 loss with 14 knockouts and last fought in March of this year when winning the organization’s lowly regarded European light-heavyweight title.

Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet the news will no doubt be met with negativity after mounting speculation linking the Welshman with a unification fight against WBA champion Beibut Shumenov.

A press conference is scheduled for next Monday (Sept 3) when further details will be announced.

This is rediculas. It should be Cleverley vs Shumenov in LA. The only way this show can make money would be to have Groves/Anderson II as the main event!
