Hardly surprising, considering he was only selected because he'd not been stretched before.

Even in the pre-fight stuff, Clev would barely stay awake during interviews. Trying to talk him up saying he was tough, ''gave so and so a hard fight'' and was better than Bellew, a harder puncher () and other ****.

Good news is he trying to make the list again for 2013. ***** and Cleverly are an absolute disgrace to boxing. I can stomach a development fight etc but I'd go as far as saying that Cleverlys yet to fight a genuine top 5 operator, maybe even top 10. It's an embarassment. Even the Bellew fight was a garabage in house promotion but we enjoyed it because we like Tony and he came to fight.

Even then I think Frank was suprised it was so close and shockingly the rematch never happened. Perhaps he thought Tony was European level and thats why he tried to bring him in as a scapegoat that time he failed to make weight safely.

Nathan's run since Bellew has been pitiful.

Cleverly vs Bellew was a much worse fight than those other 2 that made the top 10.

Fernando Vargas v Howard Clarke. Clarke was a journeyman with 10 losses Vargas was a world champion with a 15 - 0 record all by ko.

The Karpency fight was ridiculous, what were they even thinking? It was funny that it actually took place.

Carl Froch vs Yusef Mack must have been close to making the list.

I think Cleverly is quite content with the path on which he is treading.

There's nothing other than the typical name dropping that's common place among Allegedly fighters to suggest that he really wants to attempt to prove himself, which is a great shame, as he's got lots of potential.

The Bellew fight was a wake-up call I think, they sailed a bit close to the wind with that one and don't want to make the same mistake twice.

The Povetkin v Rahman fight was an embarrassment

Also if Ricky Burns would have fought Walsh or Ocampo, he would have made that list too.

Good going Frank.
