Boxing Betting: Cleverly keen to take on Kovalev

Nathan Cleverly’s boxing betting fans look forward to seeing the fighter face Sergey Kovalev in what he says is his first ‘real’ fight for a while – and the Welshman is also very eager for this fight to get underway.
Boxing betting fans saw that in the past 18 months, Cleverly’s career came to a standstill with promoter Frank Warren fighting to find credible opponents for the WBO light-heavyweight champion.
But boxing betting fans can’t wait, as on August 17, the Welshman who makes very good boxing odds will face a serious threat in the sixth defence of his belt against an unbeaten Kovalev.
“This is the kind of fight I’ve been looking for for a long time and it’s a great chance for me to showcase my talent and show everybody what I’m all about,” he said.
“It is definitely the biggest test. You’ve got someone who wants my world title and who is undefeated and coming with the hype from America, so this is a real fight.
“Bringing that American exposure is a real bonus. He will come looking for a knockout and I will be ready for that. [Beating] Kovalev will take me to the big fights with the elite guys in the division.”
Kovalev recently turned into the mandatory challenger for Bernard Hopkins’ IBF title, but boxing betting fans learned that instead he decided to face Cleverly in Cardiff, and fans all over the world can’t wait to see what the boxing odds will look like in this fight.
“I thought we might have lost the big fight especially when Sergey was made mandatory for the IBF title,” added Cleverly. “But fortunately we solved a few issues and we got the fight we wanted.
“It’s nice not to be mentioned as the favourite in this fight – there are a lot of mixed opinions and in a way that takes a lot of pressure off.
