Nathan Cleverly Update

WBO interim light heavyweight titlist Nathan Cleverly has been sparring exclusively with southpaws to prepare for his May 21 challenge to WBO world champion Jurgen Braehmer at The O2 in London. “I think I’ve watched every fight that Braehmer has ever had, and I’ve had guys in the gym replicating his style,” stated Cleverly. “I’m going to get some quality sparring with one of the best southpaws in the country with James DeGale. And I think I learned at the hands of the master as well when I grew up with Joe Calzaghe. He’s one of the best southpaws of all time, and the experience I got from facing him in the gym when I was just 18 will stand me in good stead against Braehmer. “I’ve always enjoyed facing southpaws. I’ve not come up against too many in the pros, but I’ve dealt with them in the gym, and I’ll deal with Braehmer on May 21.”
