Don't worry fellas. Cleverly will beat this virus and come back stronger than ever. He's using Andre Dirrell's doctor.

Doctor...Shaw Hi.

I might be the only person with a ticket.

I bought a ticket to see boxing at the Royal Albert Hall, more than anything. It's a great venue for the sport and deserves support.
So I thought, **** it, I'll put up with the low quality of the card, which was very disappointing.

BUT I did expect to see a "world championship" match. And that's what it says on my ticket.

The main event needs to be replaced. It's disgraceful if they just keep the card as it is minus the main event. That would be unjustifiable.

Surely you can't actually believe that Clevelry/Krasniqi was a "world championship" fight?

On principle, I'll seek a refund.

I have an Albert Hall ticket that says "Frank Wa#ren presents World Championship Boxing" .... it doesn't say "presents an elminator for a domestic title" !

No, but that's not the point.
It was advertised as such, and was the main event.

"I've been unable to train because I've been laid up in bed with a viral infection and there's not enough time to make up what I've missed in training to make sure I'm fully fit," Cleverly said. "I've taken the advice of my doctor and been told to fully rest before attempting to start training again.

"I'm really disappointed because I was looking forward to being the first fighter to bring boxing back to the Royal Albert Hall in over a decade and the first of the century."


"It was a big night for me as Hopkins was facing Dawson on the same night and I was looking to do a good job on Krasniqi to get a fight with the winner," Cleverly said.

"I'm sorry for my fans, but I'm happy that the show will go on and a great talent like Billy Joe Saunders will now be topping the card along with Sam Webb and Matthew Hall, which looks like a cracking fight," Cleverly said.

Frank: "It's such a shame that Cleverly has been hit with a viral infection, and at a crucial time in his training and career. He is unable to fight and he now needs to have a good rest, get himself healthy and resume training before we look to reschedule his title defense.

I'm going as well. It's a bit of a joke really. But to be expected, my guess is that Enzo will have a quick tune up against some journeyman to replace it as the main event.

Also expecting Skeete to be in with someone half decent over 8 rounds, saying that BJS VS Hill and Webb VS Hall are two good fights, looking forward to those.

I am just gutted this fight isn't happening, had FOTY written all over it. IMHO Clev could have gone in at 50% and still won comfortably.

Yeah, true, I was expecting Saunders-Hill and Webb-Hall to be better than the Cleverly fight anyway.
