On Saturday 25th february our attention will be turned towards Nathan Cleverly as he defends his WBO light-heavyweight championship against American southpaw Tommy Karpency.
Cleverly has confirmed that after all the recent events in the heavyweight division involving Derrick Chisora and David Haye, he will be keen to get his head down and focus on the task in hand.
Cleverly claims 'people are going to be looking for people to lead by example', and has stated he has the chance to do this.
After a heated press confrence with merseyside born Tony Bellew in his last encounter, im sure he will be looking to make sure this time around he is focused on getting the job done and retaining his WBO title.
In other news the encounter of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley has been confirmed to be going ahead on the 9th June, i think we can all agree its not the fight that we would have wanted Pacquiao to have taken, but however does leave us asking the question...can Bradley do what many doubt and beat the pound for pound champion. Bradley isgoing in to this fight with 28 wins and 0 losses, without doubt this makes him the underdog for this encounter, but many have said that due to recent fights taken by Pacquiao he seems to be on a downwards spiral and heading towards a defeat. Carefully picked fights like Antonio Margarito and Sugar Shane Mosley suggests that the 54 - 3 champion doesnt have much left in the tank like he once used to.
