This is on the Mayweather-Macgregor undercard.

Cleverly 7/2

Always thought Cleverly was one of the worst world champions , in that he got the belt out of a bin without having to fight anyone in the Top 10 , then made a bunch of defences against guys nowhere near Top 10 , before being demolished in his first proper world level fight.

I thought he was done 3 years ago but since then he has had the best years of his career imo , and i'm thinking he is overpriced for this.

Agree Jack should be strong at LH and clear fav but odds should be closer imo

I would back Jack to stop him, depending on the price. And talking about Price's, look who's back in September! Or should I say SepTIMBER?!! If big Dave can't beat that Tomato Can, then it really is an indictment.

Think Jack is a tad short in the odds but then again i think Jack will stop him. Badou's last 4 performances have been solid world level and he gave De Gale a hell of a hard night last time. We dont know how Badou will handle the step up to 175 but he seems like he was really hurting getting down to SM so that would suggest he'l be solid come fight night.

My main reason for opposing Clev is that he is incredibly easy to hit. He has a reasonable chin but i think he is about shot and not interested much anymore. Got 3/1 on Jack stoppage which i think is more than fair as i think he hits consistently and solidly enough to have a chance at stopping Clev late.

Jack by stoppage is buying currency.

jack on points imo

Jack is not exactly a big puncher ( though DG's dentist might say otherwise). Cleverly has heart and a high work rate, definitely a better work rate than Jack. Being a Mayweather promotion and the way they cried foul after his last fight, Jack on points is the likely outcome for me.

Clev looked awful recently imo. Even in that last fight vs Braemher it was an awful fight with a lot of crap arm punches being thrown until Braehmer threw in the towel. I haven't seen anything since Cleverly lost to Kovalev that makes me can win here.

I've got Jack in a multiple with Borrega, Tabiti, Mayweather and Davis (I did say I wsn't interested in the circus fight, but the price was attractive to boost the multi). Only pays 2/1, not great, but should come in. Also have Aleem and Derevyanchenko in a double. I think they will both be stoppages, but can't find a "method" market on those fights.

Davis missed weight by 2 pounds and stripped of title. Another Broner.

Aleem got KO'd, so that's my double up the spout. Aleem is good offensively, but his defence is terrible. Sad Better luck for my 5-fold, I hope. Scared

Davis only just made the weight for the Liam Walsh fight, so it's not that surprising. He was always going to have to move up a division. I still think he'll carry the power, but he will need to work on a few things, particularly defence and footwork.

Borrego got UD'd so that's my 5-fold fecked already. Sad  Other 4 bound to win now. Grin

Never rated Cleverly even 4/5 years ago, fully expected Jack to stop him.
