After Krasniqi Clev has to face the winner of Gutknecht-Braehmer.

Kovalev is a beast, he'd be dangerous for anyone in the division. Clev would probably stand & trade with him which looks like a bad idea.

I think this is the least likely fight out there for Cleverly at the moment. I'd imagine a unification is more likely than this. Plenty of risk, no reward for Nathan.

Krasniqi is a moderate test.

Gutknecht or Braehmer is a grade above.

Kovalev would be five grades above either.

Cleverly going after Kovalev would be like a special education student all of a sudden taking honors course.

Clev has a degree in mathematics. What you are trying to say is Clev is a D-F level fighter and and Kovalev is an A level fighter?

that's why he never fights Kovalev.
Well, seems like I was wrong... he did fight Kov afterall.

Me too. And DrMo called that he would just stand and trade with him. Good shout.

I know man, it comes with age. Next thing you don't remember putting on your pants when you're headed to the mall, then it turns out you're right not remembering doing that. It happens man, it happens.

Never understood why fighters want to jump back in with people who've beaten them convincingly. If i was Cleverly i'd be looking at Afolabi then possibly Huck, both of which he'd beat. Would fancy him against Hernandez as well. For me it's not a very strong division at all.
