Going up to LHW for the first time to fight basically a career LHW in Cleverly would even the playing field somewhat. He wont be able to bully him. Clevery's manic workrate would cause him problems and it would be a much better fight than Mack was or Stevenson would be.
Your forgetting one thing mate..Cleverly's defense is awful, he can't box for shit at world level, Bellew completely outboxed him until he gassed.
Froch won't make the same mistake, he is more durable, skilled, punches harder, has the better chin, far more experienced, Cleverly has no chance IMO.
