Warren on Cleverly, Khan-Ariza, Hopkins, Morales, More

By Frank Warren

NATHAN CLEVERLY gets his big chance on April 2 when he fights WBO light-heavyweight champion Jurgen Braehmer at Wembley Arena.

It's a fantastic fight for the Welshman and could be a career-defining moment.

Cleverly has been waiting a long time for his opportunity, and I'm glad his patience has been rewarded.

I had to dig deep to get Braehmer to agree to come to the UK. But it's always worth securing home advantage for your fighters.

If Cleverly wins, I really believe it could be the start of something big for him.

Wales is crying out for a big boxing name after Joe Calzaghe's retirement and Cleverly fits the bill.

And light-heavyweight is a white-hot division. As well as Braehmer, other big names include Bernard Hopkins, Chad Dawson, Tavoris Cloud and Jean Pascal.

There will be no shortage of big fights for Cleverly and he has the chance to make a name for himself not just here but America as well.

You have to remind yourself that he's still just 23.

HAYEMAKER'S head of boxing Dave Coldwell won purse bids for James DeGale's British supermiddleweight title fight against George Groves.

He put together an offer of £400,000 - a staggering amount for a British title fight.

While his boss Adam Booth also put a bid in for £320-odd thousand! Very strange. Coldwell has two weeks to give us a date and venue.

LOOKS like Erik Morales could be lining up a fight with Amir Khan-victim Marcos Maidana.

Comeback king Morales is on a run of three wins but Maidana could be too big and too hungry.

BERNARD HOPKINS will get another shot at Jean Pascal on May 21 in Quebec, Canada, according to reports.

Hopkins was furious after his WBC light-heavyweight title challenge with Chad Dawson in December was called a draw when most observers thought he won.

AMIR KHAN revealed he was off to train with Manny Pacquiao ahead of his fight with Paul McCloskey.

Khan recently fired his conditioner Alex Ariza.

Pacquiao will still be working with Ariza in the gym - that should be an interesting reunion!

nathan cleverly doesn't have a chance against the top fighters at light heavy weight. chame really, i's like him to do well but can you imagine him against hopkins? pascal would take massive advantage of his slow foot speed and…
