Your talking thru your arse Red Ryan Calzaghe beat Hopkins Roy Jones in the USA & spanked Kessler as well as sending the next Mike Tyson ‘left hook’ Lacy home with his tail between his legs – are they all bums ?

Swedish Boxing Fan Hopkins hall of famer ? Were do you see that. Beating a drunk Pavlik ? Head butting a win against Tito ? Fighting like a thug against Roy 2 for that in too ? Botching a medical report in the first Dawson 1 fight and fighting like a street thug in the part 2. Rioding in the Pascal fight. Swedish get your facts right. Bernard should never ever be a Hall of Famer

It would have been a great fight with Baernard Hopkins vs. Nathan Clevery in a WBC, WBO and Lineal light heavyweight world title unification match if Hopkins had choosed to defend the titles against WBO champ Clevery before Hopkins took on Dawson in a rematch, but now its to late and Hopkins will be the challanger but then again a fight now would not be the same with out the unification part in the picture. Hopkins is old now but not done as fighter and Clevery would get a tough night against the future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins.

Hopkins is one of the most overrated fighters ever. He’s a ring hugger. A staller that fights dirty. He a baby whiner

Cleverly should definitely stay in the UK just now and build his fanbase more, however that doesn’t mean Frank Warren shouldn’t cough up the dough to bring names like Shumenov there.

Gentlemen: As I’ve stated before it’s not Cleverley’s fault any more then it was Calzaghe’s. Frank Warren always wants 100% control which is why he turned down Clev vs Shumenov in Las Vegas. I would have hated to see Clev fight Bhop with Hopkins coming off a loss. If Clev wants to be #1 then he’s gotta ditch FW & start fighting overseas against the likes of Cloud, Dawson & Shumenov.

It’s not understandable because Shumenov isn’t a big name or a big draw in America, they’ll lose alot of money staging the fight in a country where they are barely known. It makes alot more sense to stage this fight in the UK than it does in America.

I actually don’t have much of an issue with Frank’s stance their because it makes no financial sense to fight Shumenov in America. The fight would be stuck in a small casino with a weak crowd turn out because neither guy is well known there. The fight would generate alot more money in the UK but Shumenov’s too stubborn to see that.

Frank Warren is such a slimey snake that he’ll try and use Froch’s name to hype up Cleverly, it’s such a joke that Warren is trying to make it look like Froch is avoiding Cleverly despite the fact he’s in a lower division and already has a rematch with Bute signed. Shumenov claims he wants Cleverly but he keeps saying it has to be in America, that makes no sense at all.

Cleverly will need one of the big dogs soon..Cloud..Dawson..ect. it will happen hopefully soon enough.

Red Ryan

Clev is another Calzagy will fight bums forever and ever and make excuses foever and ever. No interest in him at all. Dawson, Ward, Bhop, pascal, cloud and others will destroy him………

The only reason the Shumenov fight fell though was because frank Warren wouldn’t take a 50% fight on nuetral ground. I’m sure Clev would have jumped at a WBA/WBO unification, but as with Joe Calzaghe FW’s hell bent on holding him back & making a living out of the lowly WBO title.
Memo to George Groves: Take note! Tony Bellew & Kell Brook jumped ship for a reason. get the Lonsdale belt out-right & for the good of your own career take off to the USA.
Does anyone know if James DeGail’s got away from FW yet?

let’s just set some facts straight here, Bellew, Froch and Hopkins didn’t turn down Cleverly it is all way of making people believe he is trying to set up credible fights. Shumenov has said he want’s the fight but not in Wales which is understandable.

The point about the pay is bang on. Out of the fighters mentioned I can imagine it would only be Hopkins who would turn down for political reasons. For Toney bellew to turn down the fight the offer must be awful. I hope cleveleys career does not stutter in the way calazghes did under Warren.

Cleverly has to settle for Uzelkov after Froch, Bellew, Shumenov and Hopkins fights failed to materialize
