Nathan Cleverly (25-0, 12KOs) has one fight on the agenda, when he makes a mandatory defense of his WBO light heavyweight title against Robin Krasniqi (39-2, 15KOs) on the 16th of March. Cleverly's promoter Frank Warren won the recent purse bid to stage the bout.
Once he gets Krasniqi out of the way, Cleverly wants a unification fight with WBA champion Beibut Shumenov or the winner of the fight between IBF champion Tavoris Cloud and Bernard Hopkins, who meet on March 9th in Brooklyn, New York.
"I've got to perform and impress against this guy and that's going to set up the rest of 2013 then for the big unification fights... Everything will fall into place after this fight. If it all goes well with the Krasniqi fight, Shumenov is definitely in my sights and I would definitely like to fight the winner of Hopkins and Tavoris Cloud," Cleverly said.
