Now I really am puzzled!

The well respected Welsh WBO light-heavyweight champion, Nathan Cleverly, seems to have a bee in his bonnet relating to Carl Froch.

Cleverly, not short of an opponent or two to face at his own weight, seems intent on enticing Froch into the ring for something that is fast approaching a grudge-fight.

The latest mutterings are somewhat contradictive though with Cleverly attributed as having remarked,

?Carl?s been disrespectful to past British champions.?

?He?s also been disrespectful to be by saying I?m not a worthy challenger. But he?s only interested in staying at super-middleweight and fighting smaller guys coming up to his weight.?

?I?d beat Carl Froch. He knows that and that?s why he?s gone as quiet as a mouse about the fight.?

But Nathan, isn?t what you?re accusing Froch of exactly the same as what you?d be doing if Froch moved up from super-middleweight to face you?
