Unbeaten Welshman Nathan Cleverly is the current WBO World Light
Born in Caerphilly, Cleverly started his professional career in 2005 with a points win over Ernie Smith. He went on to become one of the most promising British fighters of the mid-noughties before earning a 2008 tilt at the vacant Commonwealth Light Heavyweight Championship.
Cleverly won the all-British bout on a unanimous points decision and went on to win the British Light Heavyweight belt the following year against Danny McIntosh, extending his record to 17 - 0 in the process.
The unstoppable Welshman achieved European success in 2010, winning the EBU Light Heavyweight Championship against Antonio Brancalion before turning his attention to the WBO belt in the same year.
Cleverly first defeated German Karo Murat in a WBO Championship eliminator before securing the belt against Frenchman Nadjib Mohammedi in December 2010. This capped a highly impressive year and advanced his run to 21 straight wins.
The Welsh fighter has defended his WBO crown three times, with his most recent bout - LIVE on BoxNationTV - a homecoming title defence against American challenger Tommy Karpency.
