Nathan Cleverly wants to unify his WBO light heavyweight title with THE RING, WBC and IBF titles held by Chad Dawson and Bernard Hopkins, but the unbeaten Welshman isn’t overlooking mandatory challenger Robin Krasniqi, who he fights Saturday in London.
If he gets beyond a mandatory title defense against Karo Murat in July, IBF light heavyweight beltholder Bernard Hopkins would like to face Carl Froch or Lucian Bute. (This story also contains a video of Hopkins accepting Gennady Golovkin’s challenge.)
RING heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will return to EPIX for a May 4 defense against Francesco Pianeta. The fight will follow a string of notable Europe-based world title bouts on the U.S. network.
