From Mr W's latest column:

On David Price rebounding..

Provided Dereck Chisora regains his license and impresses in his scheduled return later this month, we could have a ready made North verses South crossroads fight that would the fans as the battle for Redemption.
On Audley's latest triumph and Prizefighter in general..

Audley Harrison wins Prizefighter for a second time and suddenly he is primed to fill the chasm of world title contender left by David Price? Hardly!

He beat three non-entities in a glorified three round amateur scramble. Whoopeee! In 29 tournaments since its inception five years back, not a single Prizefighter entrant has advanced to world honours.
And finally to the most avoided fighter in the world..

It's my steadfast belief that Nathan Cleverly is the premier 175lb fighter on this planet

I'm sick of cynics who disparage his level of opposition thus far. People forget that Juergen Braehmer forfeited the world title just two days before he was due to make a mandatory defence against Nathan in 2010, or that the lad from the Cefn Forest comfortably defeated Tony Bellew - soon to fight a final eliminator for the WBC belt - in the Liverpudlian's home city in October 2011.

Then, just as we were finalising a break-out fight against Bernard Hopkins, Nathan incurred a genuine injury which place him on the side lines for a while. Neither Nathan nor I can be blamed for that.
Oh and probably my favourite part of all..

Whatever, 2013 promises to be a momentous year in which I hope Cleverly has a minimum of three fights, and hopefully four.

He kicks off with a severe test on my blockbuster Wembley Arena promotion on 16th March against mandatory challenger Robin Krasniqi, a 6ft 1in 25 old year German based Kosovan who's won 38 on the bounce.
:lol:

In 2 years as a 'world champion' the only person he's fought is Tony . And that was before Bellew was anything on the world stage. That was a Bellew coming off wins against Ovill McKenzie. Yet Warren is acting like the Bellew fight was them taking on the best opposition? Hardly considering where Bellew was in his career then.

Don't get me wrong, the win against Bellew is a good one. I just think it's bullshit when Warren is using his name to somehow claim he's been matching Cleverly tough when Bellew was a domestic level fighter at the time.

Where's the top 10 opponents in Clev's title reign?

Yep i`m convinced frank thought Bellew would be a walk in the park for Clev going by Bellews previous fights,frank was shocked at how close and competative it was.I had the fight a draw and for him to say it was comfortable is a joke
