I just hope the winner starts unification. WBA titlist Beibut Shumenov offered Clev a 50% cut on neutral ground(USA) but was flatly turned down.

Tark has bought into the Krusher hype, maybe when Clev whips his ass he will give Clev his credit where its due.

Krusher stopped a past it Campillo, his best win yet.

great fight for a couple of rounds until Clevs work-rate takes over and he dominates Krusher.

Hi Tark. I like the look of Kovalev. His punches dont look that big but when they land they have such a destructive effect on the opponent. A sign of natural power.
However…people are right to question his experience. He’s not fought anyone of note yet and Cleverly has a good chin and decent handspeed. This has potential to be a great fight.

Ward= parasite style ,feeds off opponents style and has none of his own.

@ Tark – Ward is not willing to fight in England. I don’t know where you got that from.

TARK

Ward is willing to go to England to rematch with Froch… But Froch isn’t keen on fighting him again.

After their last fight Froch said, “I don’t think anyone will ever beat Ward.”

Ward will unravel when he fights away, he probably knows it, you won’t get away with the butting and holding, you will get warned for it at the least, different environment, different then, is Ward going to be known as a Sven Ottke, he is already on the way there, or not, no he isn’t going anywhere, passport will accumulate some more layers of dust.

Ward butted Kessler constantly, that’s why he got infamous, he will never be famous for that, 2 different things.

Ward the fraud, will not fight away, Froch will walk through him next time, he can’t punch, Froch has changed his style with the Bute fight, watch out Ward, you are getting knocked out if you fight Froch.

TARK

You can do it without a lot of fights and rounds.. Depends on how good you are.

Posted July 31, 2013 8:44 pm 


TARK

I do … Kovalev needs rounds… He needs names on his resume… He needs fights… He has the raw goods.

His lack of experience and opposition are the only reasons Cleverly’s team thinks this is the perfect time to fight Kovalev… It’s a natural miscalculation.

And Kessler wasn’t proven because he never passed a real test.. Froch is a proven fighter to a limited degree, but he failed the big test.. Calzaghe was a proven fighter only to the extent he dominataed Kessler.. He turned down fights with Froch, Dawson, Glen Johnson, and Tarver.

You have to remember Ward dominated and stopped Kessler when he had only 20 fights — fewer than Kovalev has now.

Tark- You really think the Russian is that good? He hasn’t fought anyone yet. All those guys you mention are proven at the highest level of the sport.

Fight Aficionado

This strategy is what basically everyone says Clerverly must do, except for Cleverly.

Posted July 31, 2013 5:09 pm 


TARK

Lacy is a very low grade boxer compared to Kovalev… Calzaghe would have been killed if he fought a fighter the caliber of Kovalev the way he fought Lacy… Also, Kovalev is way above Kessler and even above Froch. He’s better than Calzaghe as well.

He’s not quite as good as GGG and Ward — yet — but he’s the real deal.

Cleverly would be a fool to do what he’s said he’s going to do: i.e. go toe to toe with Kovalev and try to KO him. What he needs to do instead is pretty much what Calzaghe did to Lacy: i.e. bombard him with 100 punches per round, spinning off to the side after each fast combination, never giving him a chance to set up/land his hard shots. As I see it, Cleverly needs to work on speed, movement, defence and endurance, and as long as he sticks to the game-plan he should win a comfortable UD. If a KO or TKO comes in the later rounds when Kovalev tires, so much the better, but I doubt it’d be wise for him to go looking for it.

I love the fact Cleverly is being made underdog here. Im gonna make some dollar here, CHAAAAAACHIIIIING $£$£$£$£

What!?!

The wannabe tough guy called Cleverly is going to get smashed by a real fighter in Kovalev. It is going to look like Cleverly has a chance until Kovalev works out this paper champ and executes his plan. Cleverly is KOéd in the 5th. Cleverly won’t be able to resist a macho showdown and will get beaten into a coma.

Clev is going to win, once Krusher realises that Clev is not a club fighter or a has been whom he’s used to KO’ing then he wont be long in getting bossed, I think Kovolev will quit on his stool around rnd 9 or 10.
