Cleverly: There is Unfinished Business With Braehmer

By James Delaney, courtesy of The Daily Star

CHAMPION Nathan Cleverly’s preparations for the defence of his world title against Robin Krasniqi have been upset by a stomach bug.

The WBO light-heavyweight king, undefeated in 25 fights, lost almost a stone in weight after he was struck down with a virus.

It is the second time Cleverly has been laid low by illness, having pulled out of last February’s scheduled fight at the Royal Albert Hall against German-based Kosovan Krasniqi.

But the Welshman is now back in training and “feeling good” as he aims to finally secure a date with former world champion Juergen Braehmer.

The 26-year-old faces Krasniqi at Wembley Arena in two weeks time.

But he is already targeting German Braehmer, who gave up the belt when he failed to face Cleverly in 2010.

And the champion said: “He has been on the scene for many years now and it’s time to get it done and dusted. I definitely want the fight.

“He didn’t turn up two days before we were meant to fight and I was upgraded to champion.

“But I want to beat this guy in the ring and set the record straight.

“Once we get Krasniqi done we’ll get that opportunity.”

[QUOTE=simonihirst;13098128]I agree with whats been said, he cares about Braehmer. He didn't look great in last fight and as the commentary team said, if they were Cleverley, they wouldn't be overly concerned by him. Cleverley needs to get his ass…

There was a time when I was looking forward to a Cleverly vs Brahmer fight, but it's not 2010 anymore!!!!

after their upcoming fights and if both are victorious...Hopkins vs Clev will be made later this year :boxing:

Ah, these so-called mandatories... If Cleverly wants a unification bout, the sanctioning bodies aren't going to stop him; if anything, they'd likely encourage it.
