"We move forward as we always do - presenting and delivering good fights.
This is a very important fight for Nathan Cleverly [against Krasniqi]. He can't afford to slip up because if he does any potential fight with Bernard Hopkins will go out the window.
Derek's had some good fights in the last 18 months - all meaningful. He got robbed in Finland against Helenius, put a great fight up against [Vitali] Klitschko and last year - in probably the biggest fight in the UK last year - was involved in one of the most exciting heavyweight fights I've seen in recent years [against David Haye].
He's not even had 20 pro fights yet, unbelievably. I honestly do think if he gets himself going and learns from his previous fights I really do think he can at least challenge for a world title if not get himself into a situation where he can win one. The Klitschko aren't getting any younger so the division is going to be wide open for all the young heavyweights and Dereck is going to be there amongst them."
