Nathan Cleverly fights Robin Krasniqi on April 28th


If you saw Nathan Cleverly's last fight you probably don't remember much, because odds are you fell asleep in the middle rounds. The WBO world champion won a unanimous decision over American Tommy Karpency, a mid-level fighter who had no business in a world title fight. Cleverly's promoter Frank Warren rightly took a lot of flak for that fight, and he probably knew he had to get the next one right.

He's had a look round and quickly managed to line up Robin Krasniqi, a twenty-four year old light heavyweight with a 37-2 (13KO) record. Not bad. Krasniqi is the WBO European champion and should present much more of a challenge than Karpency, though it's not the Cleverly-Hopkins bout that many of the Welshman's fans are waiting for.

The fight is April 28th at the Royal Albert Hall, Cleverly's first time fighting at the venue well known for the Royal Variety Performance. Krasniqi has never stepped foot outside of Germany, so fair play to the Munich resident. 

The WBO don't seem too happy with the bout. This is taken directly from their website:

WBO Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel commented that the bout between Nathan Cleverly vs. Robin Krasniqi cannot and would not be sanctioned because Nathan Cleverly’s sanction against Karpency clearly stated that the bout was being sanctioned with the provision that the winner fight his mandatory bout
120 days from the day of the bout, subject to the WBO Regulations of World Championship Contests.  See attached sanction.
