Braehmer suffers cut, fight against Cleverly called off

Juergen Braehmer’s light heavyweight title defense against Nathan Cleverly, scheduled for Saturday in London, was called off because Braehmer suffered a cut near his eye in training, according to several reports.

Braehmer reportedly suffered the cut on May 8 and it didn’t heal quickly enough for him to fight.

Cleverly apparently will fight unbeaten Tony Bellow at the O2 Arena on Saturday.
