Who's a Clever boy?
I really like future prospects in boxing, just like everyone else, when a young and upcoming fighter, who is not only hungry and determined, but also skillful, it gets me very excited. I want to jump into a time machine and go forward 5 years to see how they have progressed, but patients is a virtue or whatever they say but im an impatient person. Well, Super Middleweight Commonwealth champion Nathan Cleverly is one of those boxers.
The other night he only needed 130-odd seconds to dispose of Samson Onyango, this was his second defence and he made it in style. Bone crunching body shots caused the Kenyan to crumble under the pressure.
The young boxer is under the tutelage of none other than Enzo Calzaghe, who calls Cleverly the true future of british boxing over Amir Khan (who fights Marco Antonio Barrera on the 14th of March), but of course he would, wouldn't he?
Cleverly has everything needed of him to reach a world title shot, and he possesses the skills to win it. Following in the footsteps of his trainers son, Joe Calzaghe, and what makes this kid more exciting is the way he boxes.
Cleverly looks to be be eyeing up Dean Francis now to add the british Lonsdale title to his credentials. I wish him the best and I know he will be going on to big, big things.
