Cleverly targets Cardiff City stadium defence...

WBO light-heavyweight world champion Nathan Cleverly is hoping to make a defence of his title at the Cardiff City football stadium in the summer of next year. The Welshman will make the fourth defence of his title on October 27th against Vyacheslav Uzelkov at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff but has his sights set on an even bigger fight next year.

"I'm pretty sure we can get a great world title fight here this summer, that's the target," said Cleverly in an interview with BBC Wales. "I spoke with a few of the guys here at the stadium and they seem ready to go for it. It would be a great atmosphere, a brilliant stadium and I'm sure we'd have a great crowd. I think the chances are very likely, its a big possibility."

"I come down to Cardiff and support them on their home games in and around training, and they've shown me great support as well."

If Cleverly is impressive in his performance against Uzelkov in October, he may be able to land a fight with the likes of Bernard Hopkins, Carl Froch and Beibut Shumenov in the summer. And these are all fights that would easily sell out Cardiff City's stadium.
