Nathan Cleverly weighed in today for his WBO light-heavyweight title defence against Tommy Karpency on Saturday night, coming in just under the required limit 12st 6lb.

The Welshman makes his long awaited homecoming at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena in what will be the third defence of his belt.

And the 25-year-old is an expectant winner, as only one of two current British world champions and should do the job against the unheralded Karpency on his way to a potential summer showdown with Bernard Hopkins, should the old man of boxing defeat Chad Dawson on the same night.

After the weigh in Cleverly talks to Jane Couch of www.janecouchboxing.com about the fight and his hopes to face Hopkins.
