New WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly says he is ready for the best in the world after making a successful first defence of his title.
The Welshman beat Aleksy Kuziemski at the O2 Arena with a fourth round stoppage.
And he immediately targeted new WBC champion Bernard Hopkins.
"I want the best in America," said Cleverly. "I'm ready for the likes of Hopkins, Tavoris Cloud or Chad Dawson.
"What a rollercoaster week it has been, but I picked myself up and stayed mentally focused.
"I was happy with that, I'm going home a world champion.
"I thought if the ref had kept it going on a little bit longer I would have put him on the canvas.
"But the ref stepped in. That doesn't matter to me now. This is a great feeling."
Promoter Frank Warren also backed his new world champion to impress in his next few fights.
"Nathan's got a lot of options," said Warren.
"I want to take him to Wales and give him a defence there because he has been on the road a long time.
"I'd put him in with any of the names he's mentioned, and Tony Bellew is in the mix as well."Tags: Tavoris Cloud , Chad Dawson , Nathan Cleverly
