I find it a bit difficult to swallow anything coming from Bellew who predominately fights out of his hometown.
At least Cleverly went in to Bellew's backyard for their World Title fight.
Cleverly's also defended his World Title in America. Showing he's willing to travel and get his name out there for the big fights.
I agree Karpancy was a bad opponent, that can't be defended but Cleverly was unlucky with Breahmer pulling out last minute and with the Coyne situation who was the original opponent lined up.
Coyne was top 10 ranked in two of the sanctioning bodies.
Bellew's fought McIntosh who Cleverly beat with ease years back for the British title and a completely shot Miranda.
Bellew hand picked Cleverly coz he thought he was the easiest of the Champions at the time and came up short.
He talks about fighting Chad Dawson but that's the biggest bs you'll ever hear.
Bellew's been dropped 3 times and rocked by Cleverly several times in their fight who doesn't have big power.
Bellew's chin is suspect and he knows it which is why you'll not see him with anybody that can box as well or better than him but can also punch.
The only time you'll see him in with a puncher is when he knows they won't have the ability to catch him due to poor footwork etc.
