Compared to the rest of Clev's defenses he certainly is.

At any point did anyone actually think Bellew would ko Cleverly? He certainly couldn't out box him. He's tough as nails and he hits hard no doubt, but on boxing ability, Cleverly is in a different league.

Cleverly on wide points decision
I take it from this that you either didn't watch the first fight or you didn't trust the evidence with your own eyes and have had a quick scan at Boxrec to take a pop.

Bellew would've done him first time round if it wasn't for the low blows.

Of course I watched it. It would be a bit ignorant not to and then say that.
I thought the atmosphere was amazing which made it seem better than it was. When I watched it back I didn't think Bellew ever really looked like winning.

Think this is a PR stunt. Tony has said he doesn't want to fight on Boxnation, which he'd have to do to fight Cleverly. Frank can now turn around and say "we offered Tony the fight, but he didn't want it" blah blah blah.

It's kind of like how David Price got the upperhand on Tyson Fury in the who is ducking who stakes, despite the fact that Fury offered the fight to Price for 100k. Truth was, neither Fury or Price wanted to fight on each others channels, but Maloney spun it as Fury ducking Price. It's a PR business.

For some reason people don't like Clev much on here in general but fair play to him he will fight anyone. I say strike while the iron is hot and make the rematch now.

Will be another close one for sure. Cardiff football stadium should probably be the venue.
