cleverley won friday night! didnt see the fight but read that he looked realy strong beating oakey, who himself isnt a bad boxer!
did anyone watch it?
and do you think he should find a new trainer to try and propel him to a better level now? his father is training him now because he left enzo calzaghe in the midst of all the legal battles with frank warren! who could train a contender boxer in britain?
Cleverly is a good boxer but he won't amount to much. The only way to compete at the top level of boxing with the lack of power Cleverly has is to be really exceptional as a boxer (In the Whitaker/Mayweather mould). When he fights the best his power won't keep them off, meaning he'll get beatdown easily.
just over 2 minutes in defence of his commonwealth title. Missed the bout unfortunately but sounds impressive again!
I think he's going about it the right way, he wants to fight Dean Francis for the British title next, which i think he could beat comfortably.
Can't see why he needs to rush to a world title like some are doing. I think he'l be world champion before he's 25 though, thats 4 years to gain experience and step up in quality! its just a pity that its frank warren who's his promoter! hopefuly calzaghe will pick him up if he's serious about promoting under calzaghe promotions.
anyway, hope he gets dean francis next and continous to box in impressive fashion!
