Too bad it won't actually happen.

Cleverly is not a thinking fighter , he doesn't box using strategy , he comes out and over whelms with work rate , and output , he can only fight one way , if you are as active as Cleverly and beat him to the punch , you have the measure of him

Easier said than done against a man as fit and strong as Nathan Cleverly

Bellew should look to blast him out and abandon boxing him all together

I like McIntosh he's soppy but brave as a old boots. Shame his style is a walking disaster area.
Cro Cop against Gonzaga might just be the worst....ouch.

And Bryn, another good example. Not nice. Especially when you've just been clouted one on the chin

If Bellew tries to blast out Cleverly he'd come second.

I've always wondered about the legs when someone gets sparked, how there haven't been any reported cruciates I'll never know.

No, not at all, but Cleverly is a tough, game little ****er who punches non-stop when he's in range.

Realistically, Cleverly's only chance to beat Bellew is if Tony obliges him. Box behind the jab and it's a one-sided fight in his favour. Cleverly (to me anyway) only seems comfortable leading, so it's up to the opponent to lead.

I might watch the Murat fight again tomorrow and critique him, I really rate the lad as I've said before, his potential is enormous, but to me he isn't sure of his identity as a fighter, doesn't know his game, as a cricketer would say.

Saying that Bellew is similar, he's obviously watched a lot of Tommy Hearns as a kid.

I don't see Bellew having the work rate to simply box Cleverly to a decision , you don't get a free pass behind the jab from Nathan Cleverly , he's too fresh and strong for that , i think Tony should completely refrain from boxing Cleverly and find that chin !!!! focus solely on knocking him out , if he does , he could take care of Cleverly inside 5 rounds if Cleverly is continuously dragged into a hooking contest

I'm hopeful it will happen what with Clev "tweeting" and Bomber calling him out ....
