WBO Rejects Cleverly's Fight, Demands Sukhotsky Bout

By Osman Rodriguez

WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel has rejected Nathan Cleverly's announced fight against Robin Krasniqi, which promoter Frank Warren revealed earlier today for April 28th. Cleverly (24-0, 11KOs) was given permission to face Tommy Karpency in February with the understanding that a mandatory defense against Dmitry Sukhotsky (18-1, 13KOs) would take place in 120 days. Sukhotsky and his management have long complained about being unable to secure their mandatory shot at the title.
