Hearn To Warren: Froch Had No Interest in Cleverly Bout

By Shaun Brown

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. They (Frank Warren Promotions) knew, we knew that we were never going to accept it. It’s easy to throw offers around and it’s easy to hype a fight that really has no relevance to anyone.”

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

Though Mack is no world beater, Clev is only a belt holder because the guy who previously held the belt was a nutcase who spent more time in court than in the ring and made a habit of not turning…

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.
