WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly, has pledged his loyalty to promoter Frank Warren following the departure of Ricky Burns on Monday.
Burns decided to leave Warren’s employ and follow George Groves, Tony Bellew and Kell Brook to Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing.
“Things haven’t been great for Frank in the past week, I’m sure he’d say that but I have no desire to seek a move away from him," Cleverly told the South Wales Argus
“Times are tough with the current economic climate and it’s unfortunate with certain fighters getting frustrated when bills are postponed, but that’s life and that is boxing.
“But me personally? I am staying put, I feel loyalty to Frank because he’s stayed loyal to me.
“He’s survived rough patches before and will again, I know from experience he is the man who can get a fight made with [Bernard] Hopkins and Golden Boy.
“There is no blame with Frank for the show at Wembley being delayed and in a year’s time I think people will have forgotten all about this supposed feud between promoters.”
