Nathan Cleverly and Sergey Kovalev weighed in today ahead of their HBO bout in Cardiff, Wales that will see Cleverly attempt to defend his WBO light heavyweight title. Cleverly (26-0) weighed in at 174 pounds while his challenger, Kovalev (21-0-1, 19 KO) weighed in at 173, both under the 175-pound limit.
Kovalev is looking to win his first major world title in a bout many see him potentially winning by knockout. Cleverly will look to put a stop to that as he defends his title for the fifth time since capturing the title back in 2011 against Aleksy Kuziemski.
