huge gulf in class here,

this american lad has absolutely no pedigree at all,

there's almost no footage of his previous fights on-line, and although his record ( won 22/ 24 ) looks good he's only been fighting bums state side

after the trouble he had with Bellew , this  looks like Karpency has been chosen to give Nathan an easy home town win.

Clev will win this by KO,  I would be amazed if this goes beyond 6 rounds

If Froch doesn't beat Bute, I'd say he might step up in weight and fight Clev, would be a huge fight

there is footage of him V Murat on youtube
Report Jimmy Diamond February 23, 2012 9:47 PM GMT
what you make of Karpency sj?

He doesnt look bad in the youtube clip tbh. All expectations are that Cleverly walks through this guy and KO'S him. Like Clev because his fights are all action and he really goes for it but he's struggled to get people out of there for me on the odd occasion-makes hard work of things.

Cant make my mind up if this guy is made for Clev or if he can frustrate him and make the final bell losing on points. 2/1 for fight to run its entire length.

The bits I've seen he looks very cagey and I agree could frustrate clev. He was hanging on for dear life from round 9 against Murat.
I think if Clev goes at his usual pace I see him breaking him down 2nd half. Done either fighter 4-6 inside Clev is as short as 4-11 and clev 7-12 at 11-5

awful fight as expected. Clev making hard work of getting rid of essentially a boy. He's gonna get found out when (if) he steps up.

Clev struggled to stop people early in his career but seemed to be devleoping power and put a string of k.os together but Im starting to think he doesnt actually have the power for the top level and them few kos he put together has flattered him. essentially he's not as good as I first thought.think cloud/campillo/pascal/dawson would beat him handy enough

It's very shabby to allow a part timer a shot at a world title.

But to be fair they could advertise Cleverly fighting an actual dead person and they'd probably sell out the arena... You'll only keep on getting bad matches if people buy it.

it's a disgrace of a fight. I'm sorry but Clev is gash, what kind of performance is this?

in a way I hope frank keeps feeding him these bullshit defences...build up the hype so we can all get rich when he finally steps up and gets annihilated.

Clev has got the Paul Williams/Tavoris Cloud illness. Throw 1000 meaningless punches rather than chopping the punch rate down, and start sitting down on a few

If he had the nuts to get stuck in, for a minute, the ref would have done the rest for him, but he couldn't/wouldn't even do that.
