During the recent announcement of Nathan Cleverly’s latest world title defence against Vyacheslav Uzelkov, the champion’s promoter Frank Warren publicly stated that four offers were put forward to Bernard Hopkins, Beibut Shumenov, Carl Froch and bitter rival Tony Bellew to fight the WBO champion.

BoxingScene contacted Matchroom Boxing’s head honcho Eddie Hearn to respond to the offer put forward to Froch, a current member of the A-list at 168lbs.

“We have stated time and time again that we are not interested in a fight with Nathan,” stated Hearn. “We then receive an e-mail with an offer and by this time Carl is IBF super middleweight champion.

Hearn continued “I find the whole thing quite sad and I actually feel sorry for Nathan Cleverly.”

Does anyone really have interest in this fight?

Apparently SMW Thomas Oosthuizen's camp tried hard to get a fight at LHW with Cleverly but were turned down, this according to his promoter Rodney Berman.

[QUOTE=4Corners]Froch-Cleverly would have been far better than Yusaf Mack. Froch could have become a 2 weight champion with a win over a Top LHW.[/QUOTE] :haha: :haha:
