Schaefer: Hopkins vs. Cleverly is a Good Possibility

WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly is in line for a big-money showdown with Bernard Hopkins on March 9th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

"There is a good possibility Bernard could fight Nathan," Hopkins' promoter, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, told BBC Sport. "I've had some very interesting conversations with Nathan's promoter Frank Warren and Bernard is open to that possibility."

“Nathan is maybe the most exciting fighter in the division - and the American public now know that Nathan Cleverly is a name in the mix here in the United States. Bernard will be looking at the other two champions as well as Nathan and we'll speak with the promoters to see where we can get the best deal.Hopkins brings the name, aura and money. He is the legend and everyone wants to fight a fighter like that."

[QUOTE=cawadoody;12695848]Why is this senior citizen still fighting? Someone put him in a home already.[/QUOTE] Chances are that he'd beat the crap out of you if he really needed to. Just piss off with your "tough talk". The guy's a legend,…
