Cleverly ready to fight (someone)

Unbeaten WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly spoke to the media today at the Peacock Gym in London before he heads off to the US for his world title defence on Saturday 10th November at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The champion is waiting to hear if he will be still be facing unbeaten Ryan Coyne who heads to court on November 1 to allow him to fight or there are three other potential challengers on standby. “All this last minute drama seems to be the norm for me so I just take it in my stride now,” said Cleverly. “Actually I’ve got a bit of notice this time, Juergen Brahmer pulled out last year with only 48 hours notice and in stepped Aleksy Kuziemski and I dealt with him. With still over a week to go until my fight that’s plenty of time to prepare for a new challenger if it’s not Coyne. I’m quite chilled out about it, my training has gone perfect so there are no worries there and I’m fit and ready to fight.”
