Badou Jack Talks Fight With Nathan Cleverly – Former WBC world super middleweight champion Badou Jack takes on England’s Nathan Cleverly this coming August 26th on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s PPV return against MMA star Conor McGregor.
Jack (21-1-2) is starting to campaign at light heavyweight after winning a world title at super middleiweight. Cleverly is no soft touch, having held a world title in the 175-pound light heavyweight division and he currently holds the WBA world title after beating Germany’s Juergen Brahmer last October. Cleverly has fought up a weight class at cruiserweight as well, so it will be interesting to see how Jack manages the change in weight class.
