Over in Cardiff, this coming weekend, Nathan Cleverly will be looking to beat the dangerous Russian Sergey Kovalev and retain his WBO light-heavyweight title.

However, the Russian challenger is expected to provide stiff opposition and Cleverly has received some sound advice from another Welsh legend in Joe Calzaghe.

Calzaghe, who used Cleverly as a sparring partner ahead of his epic win over Jeff Lacey in 2006, apparently told Nathan,

?Joe told me it?s the same as him and Lacy.?

?I?ll have to keep it tight, not get reckless. Be careful and be smart.?


Sound advice and if Nathan refrains from sticking his chin in the air he can retain his title and set up some big fights in America, but f he doesn?t that?ll be another story, mark my words.
