More importantly, would these fights be on tv?

There is plenty left for him at 168, so I don't see why he would want to move-up when there are fewer big names, less money and more risk. Maybe he could have his last fight at 175 against Cleverly if he can establish himself as a major name.

Froch is world class. Cleverly hasn't even mixed at that level.

Rawlings when he was bigging up Bellews chances against Cleverly, implied that Bellew was matching or even beating Froch in sparring, apparently they had sparred lots of rounds together for their up coming fights, so if Bellew was on a par with Froch and Clev is better than Bellew, then there is your formline right there.

Bellew was coming towards the end of a camp and is absolutley massive compared to Froch.

Frochs fight is months off and he would have been dwarved by Tony.

Plus, sparring is sparring.

Froch would brutalise Cleverly. He is far too easy to hit and Froch would have his way with him. Easily.

P4P? Pfft according to Trampie Cleverly is farr too good for that.

We need to talk ATG rankings, in which case Cleverly is #2 behind the obvious #1 Calzaghe

He'll also argue that Enzo Maccarinelli was stopped too soon against Haye and that Alexander Frenkel's KO of Maccarinelli was "lucky"
