Cleverly: I Have No Problem With Fighting Carl Froch

Nathan Cleverly says he would be interested in a fight with Carl Froch if he moved to light heavyweight.

Cleverly is hoping to win the WBO light-heavyweight title in his next fight, which should be against Jurgen Braehmer.

And he says after that, he will start targeting some of the biggest names in the sport.

On his hit list are world class Americans Jean Pascal, Chad Dawson and Tavoris Cloud.

But speaking on Sky Sports' Ringside programme on Thursday night, he also revealed he would be keen to take on Froch.

"Hopefully I will have the WBO world title at some point this year, and if Froch moved up it would mean he could fight me for the world title," he said.

"It's a fight that the public would love, and I wouldn't have a problem with it."

Cleverly really doesn't want any of Froch tbh. Froch has power and workrate he's not experienced before. Besides, I think he knows this and is just talking to keep his name in the spotlight ala David Haye.

[QUOTE=Clegg;9987718]He's talented but I don't think he's ready for the elite-level guys yet. I'm not sure when/if he will be, I think Braehmar followed by Shumenov would be a good way of progressing. Neither of those two are exceptional but…
