A promoter who can bring you name fighters? What name fighters has Cleverly fought since winning the belt? His only decent defence was against Bellew who many considered a joke challenger at the time. FW won't ever put Nathan with a good opponent. He won't risk it. Cleverly is his cash cow, he won't risk him losing. He's content with making a tidy amount of money by having Cleverly fight bum of the month opponents in 5000 seater venues. Same situation with Ricky Burns.
Golden Boy seem to like Cleverly. Maybe Nathan could cut a deal with them if he ever decides to leave FW? ****, Nathan's local vicar in the Welsh village where he loves could promote him better than FW has been doing.
