Hopkins up next for Cleverly

Welshman Nathan Cleverly is expected to be offered a fight against veteran Bernard Hopkins after defending his WBO light-heavyweight title against American Shawn Hawk in Los Angeles. Cleverly downed Hawk three times, on the last occasion in the eighth round to retain his title for a fourth time. Meanwhile, IBF, IBO, WBF and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko defended his belts with a unanimous points triumph over Poland’s Mariusz Wach in Hamburg.
