Cleverly won a vacant WBO belt. He's hardly a world champion.

I thought that, but surely he's established himself as a TRUE champion with the formidable opposition he's faced in his title defences (?)

Close. He got given the vacant belt without even having to fight for it.

Considering Dai and craney have similar views and posting style .. I am surprised they both dont post in the same thread to at least agree with what the each other has said.

Ive not checked for sure ... but they very rarely ( if ever ) post in the same thread.

Whats the chances of that ? ... unless ....

OR

in the next few months we'll have a two belt Champ in Froch, Brook realising his promise and picking up a world title and Burns retaining his belt in a tough but well matched fight.

We are just as likely to have a couple of new straps as we are to lose them all.

Wouldn't Burns be a 'two belt champ' as well if he wins?

He's not as bad as Canelo. At least Clev wants the big fights but cant get them.

Hopkins ran away.
How is he meant to fight Shumenov when he hasn't fought in 2 years. How Shumenov gets no shit and still has the WBA belt is a mystery.

The WBA seem to quite lenient with their 'champions' they let Guillermo Jones sit on his Cruiser title for eons. But, I suppose having a dormant 'full' champion justifies them having an Interim champion (or two)

Nathan Cleverly is just so great. In and out of the ring he is a gent.

We know we have a sublime fighter on our hands, when he has so many haters surrounding him. That number is growing unfortunately, I've seen this before with Joe Calzaghe and Floyd Mayweather for a number of years, until people HAVE to respect them. Which is normally to little to late. They just dont realize what they had until its gone. We are now starting to see this with Adrien Broner also. The abuse they receive is disgraceful, unjust and downright despicable!

We should be loving and waxing lyrical about these sort of fighters, they dont come around often. We should cherish the time we have with them. These are luxury fighters, with talent from out of this world.

They just cant take it or bring themselves to admit it. We are living in privileged times, we are witnessing greatness before us.

Nathan Cleverly we ALL LOVE YOU!!! Some might not want to admit it, yet, but deep down WE ALL do. No matter what Nath!!! Go out and show the world what you are made of, and dont leave your dad or change his ways! Vince is your father Nathan and he always will be, not only that, but he is one funny f*cker and it makes watching your fights, interviews and weigh-ins that bit more special!

ARISE SIR VINCENT!
