Cleverly defence KOd

BOXING: Governing body the WBO have refused to sanction unbeaten Welshman Nathan Cleverly’s planned light-welterweight world title defence against Serbia’s Robin Krasniqi. The fight would have been the first held at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall for 13 years. The WBO insist Cleverly’s next defence – his fourth – should instead be against Russia’s Dmitry Sukhotsky.
