Exactly. Cleverly hasn't really fought any tough opposition...his hardest fight was with Tony Bellew, who he was dismissing as a 'domestic' fighter at a time when he was striving for better things, and Bellew did more than enough to warrant a rematch which Cleverly doesn't want to give. I can see his jab and work-rate giving Carl some problems, but Cleverly deserves more criticism for fighting journeymen than Froch.
