CLEV CRUISER DEBUT POSTPONED

Former WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly has had to withdraw from his comeback fight at the Copper Box Arena this Saturday due to a back injury. The Welsh star was making his long awaited return to the ring against Australian Daniel Ammann for his first fight in the cruiserweight division with the vacant Commonwealth title on the line. Cleverly’s preparations were hit last week when he injured his back in training and after seeking expert medical advice he has been advised to withdraw from his fight against Ammann. The 26-year-old is devastated that his comeback has been delayed, but has promised to make his big return early in 2014. He said: “It’s a bitter blow as training had been going so well and I was looking forward to making my debut at cruiserweight. For it to only happen a week before the fight is even more devastating. I just want to get this year out of the way and enter 2014 with a clean slate and get my career back on track.” Dereck Chisora headlines the Copper Box Arena show against Ondrej Pala; Nathan Cleverly challenges Daniel Ammann for the Vacant Commonwealth Cruiserweight Championship; plus London sensation Frank Buglioni challenges for the Vacant WBO European title and Bradley Skeete v Colin Lynes for the Vacant English Welterweight title.  An action-packed undercard features Mitchell Smith, Andreas and Chris Evangelou, Georgie Kean, Gary Corcoran and Tom Baker.
