Coyne is Devastated By Cleverly Fight Falling Through

Nathan Cleverly will not defend his WBO light heavyweight title against Ryan Coyne in America. Coyne, who is in a contractual dispute with former agent Don King, was expected to fight the Welshman in Los Angeles on the 10th of November. But the American says his legal battle has put paid to the fight and Cleverly must find another opponent.

"Much as I hate to say it, this fight will not be going forward with myself involved in it," Coyne told BBC Wales. "This is the biggest disappointment of my career. I trained very, very diligently for this fight and I was devastated when I got the news.

"I want to apologize to the fans in the United Kingdom and the United States that this fight won't be going ahead, but hopefully we can get it on at a later date. We just have to let the managers and attorney's sort this out."

Damn, I feel bad for Coyne. That's like the third title shot he's supposed to get in the past 3 years fall through. Once with Guillermo Jones, then another I forget against who, and now Cleverly. I really thoguht Coyne…

I'd say lets hope for Clev to get a legit opponent now, but, given the time frame and his knack for avoiding those, I highly doubt it. Bring on the next can for him!
