WBO Light-Heavyweight Champion Nathan Cleverly is predicting a stunning Welsh sporting double this Saturday with a win over Russian puncher Sergey Kovalev and Cardiff City defeating West Ham in the Premiership soccer league.
Cleverly faces a massive test against the dynamite-punching Russian in the sixth defence of his title at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, while earlier in the day The Bluebirds’ make their Premier League debut at the Boleyn Ground.
The Cardiff City fanatic reckons they’ll win and he’ll shock the boxing world by beating the invincible Kovalev who’s destroyed 19 out of 21 opponents with 18 coming inside three rounds.
“It’s going to be a great double for Welsh sport this Saturday with Cardiff City in top flight football for the first time followed by my world title showdown against the best challenger in the division in Kovalev,” Said Cleverly.
“This is a massive opportunity for them to show what they can do against the best teams in the country starting at West Ham and I’m predicting it will be a win for them,”
“The players want to get back to the Motorpoint to be ringside to support me in my fight and it will be great having them there cheering for me as I look to make it a double Welsh victory.”
