Nathan Cleverly Targets Cardiff City Stadium Defense
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly is planning a title defence at the Cardiff City Stadium next summer. The 25-year-old Welshman will make his fourth title defence against Ukrainian Vyacheslav Uzelkov at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena on 27 October. But after that Cleverly is aiming to fight at the home of Cardiff City Football Club who he supports.

"I'm pretty sure we can get a great world title fight here this summer, that's the target," Cleverly said to BBC Wales. "I spoke with a few of the guys here at the stadium and they seem ready to go for it. It would be a great atmosphere, a brilliant stadium and I'm sure we'd have a great crowd. I think the chances are very likely, it's a big possibility.

"I come down to Cardiff and support them on their home games in and around training, and they've shown me great support as well."

Assuming Cleverly sees off Uzelkov, his promoter Frank Warren is likely to continue his pursuit of the likes of American great Bernard Hopkins and WBA light-heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov, who have turned down previous approaches.

clev needs to get himself over to the states soon. hes still a pretty young guy but i think fighting the bigger names will do him good. imo he should be able to make the fight pascal/cloud.
