Clearly Frank has made the Vegas rumour up so when it's the latest bum they can say they tried for Shumenov in Vegas and Shumenovs camp will come out and say "What, no they haven't, we don't even know who he is"

Babatunde Shumenov that is. The little-known 168lb-er from Accra.

He's like a lanky version of Bradley Wiggins only not as talented.

If it's Shumenov then I will give a bit of credit, just a bit mind not too much, sadly it will be a Romanian Ram herder, which is still a step up from Karpency.

To be honest, I'd expect it to be Shumenov next. Some people on here do seem to underestimate Frank & his intelligence as a promoter. Sure, when he gets in a bad opponent, it tends to be very bad but when he spots a good opportunity, he really takes advantage of it. Think Katsidis-Burns, Tszyu-Hatton etc where he gets his man a seemingly huge task on the surface but one which in reality is a big fight, at the right time.

Shumenov is a fight that Cleverly could and probably should win. Remember the abuse Burns got on here after Evensen, Laryea and Cook and now look 2 fights later. Two decent opponents and suddenly his stock is high again. Frank will know he can't feed Cleverly bums forever and a unification fight at this point, after the Karpency debacle, would really help Nathan's reputation right now.

As for Vegas, why not? He's not a big ticket seller here as it is so why not introduce him to American fans. A Shumenov fight would likely be exciting and maye be a goer

Some valid points to be fair, Frank has got a history of making fights at the right time but normally the opponents brought in are either slightly past it or shop worn and everything's normally stacked in his own fighters favour.

Im not sure Shumenov meets that criteria, even though Cleverly could and should win, I hope it happens but I'm not sure Frank will risk it just yet?
