Nathan Cleverly is Hoping To Get His Hands on Braehmer

Nathan Cleverly is hoping to finally secure a date with Juergen Braehmer after he deals with Robin Krasniqi next month.

The Welshman makes the next defence of his WBO light-heavyweight title against Krasniqi on March 16, an assignment he expects to pass without any hitches.

But he is already targeting Braehmer, who he was supposed to fight in 2010 when the German held the title.

"He's been on the scene for many years now and it's time to get it done and dusted," Cleverly told Sky Sports.

"It's definitely a fight I want because I'll have set the record straight then.

"He didn't turn up for the fight two days before we were meant to fight, he got stripped of the title and I got upgraded to champion.

"But I want to beat this guy in the ring and once we get Krasniqi done we'll get that opportunity."

The only way Clev can gain any credence & look for top doller fights is to look for unification in what is fast becoming a very lack luster division. WBA title holder Buibut Shumenov needs to be next!

I'd be worried Braehmer would bail at the last minute again.

I guess those fights against the elite of the division will have to wait a while longer. Isn't that how it always is with Cleverley?
