Nathan Cleverly says the prospect of facing Bernard Hopkins at the Millennium Stadium will be the perfect incentive for him to beat Tony Bellew. Promoter Frank Warren has said the winner of the WBO world-title bout could face Hopkins or Chad Dawson. And Welshman Cleverly says facing Hopkins would be a dream if he beats Bellew in Liverpool on the 15th of October.

Warren, a shareholder in new TV channel BoxNation which will screen the Bellew-Cleverly fight, says he hopes to arrange a fight for the winner to face Chad Dawson or Bernard Hopkins. Hopkins defends his WBC and IBO light-heavyweight titles against Dawson in Los Angeles on the 15th of October. On the same date Cleverly will defend his WBO light heavyweight title for a second time against Liverpudlian Bellew at the city's Echo Arena.
