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.
Was not saying he was being well looked after,just asking where would you go see him go. Fair play Golden boy would be a good move. I think holding the belt he does is a problem and he should give it up unless one of his next 2 fights is not a unification bout. Rip it up and start again as they say.
