Anyone who seriously considers Cleverly a world champion needs to have a word with themselves.

He should move to Indonesia or somewhere in the surrounding areas.
Out there they love guys that manage to grab belts then keep them over there by fighting bums.
And Nathan clearly needs some love.

Worse still is he believes his own hype and thinks he has the divine right to that belt..

This is the problem with a five belt system. Fighters who are not deserving are gonna be able to pick up a belt even though they're not the best. In a one or three belt system with no ducking Cleverly probably wouldn't have a belt. But *****ing about every fighter who grabs some worthless trinket is quite pointless and only done by hating Americans. Hence why it was perfectly reasonable to assume you were a butthurt American

Ive heard rumours that Braehmer (*spelling) was paid off. Alledgedly a certain promoter gave him step aside money to walk away from the fight & vacate his title.

Every belt Clev has ever won has been vacant, he's never beaten a reigning champion.

Cleverly is being avoided and the top LHs are tied up, its not entirely his fault. Nobody is even calling him out, Bellew refused a rematch and B-hop want no part of him.

It's true that Cleverly has Bhop running scared. Bhop still remembers the last brit LHW he fought

Rumour has it that unbeaten smw prospect and IBO champ Tommy Oosthuizen's camp tried hard to secure a shot at Cleverly's LHW title but were turned down flat.
If that's true then it seems strange that they would turn down a solid offer from a fairly reputable opponent.

there are so many belts per division in boxing today which means, even though youre actually not the best in your division, there's chances aplenty of becoming a champion...
