Nathan Cleverly suffers another injury, out of Feb. 1st fight with Illunga Makubu

By James Slater

For a second time, Nathan Cleverly’s cruiserweight debut has had to be postponed due to injury on the part of the former WBO light-heavyweight champion. Cleverly, last seen being stopped inside four-rounds by powerhouse puncher Sergey Kovalev, has had to pull out of a planned February 1st fight against Illunga Makuba, which was to have taken place in Monte Carlo on the Gennady Golovkin-Osumanu Adama bout.

But promoter Frank Warren has informed Boxing News that his fighter, who had to pull out of a November fight with Daniel Amman, is unfortunately injured again. “He has sustained a minor injury and will not be fighting on Monte Carlo on February 1st and we are about to re-schedule a fight for him,” Warren told Boxing News website.

There is no word yet on who the opponent will be in the re-scheduled fight, or where or when it will take place. Cleverly lost his title and unbeaten record to Kovalev in August of last year.
