Nathan Cleverly relishing world title defence against Tommy Karpency

World light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly says he is looking forward to defending his title against American challenger Tommy Karpency at the Motorpoint arena in Cardiff on Saturday.

It is the first time the maths graduate from the Cefn Fforest has fought in Wales since he won the WBO title last year, and he tells BBC Sport's Chris Latchem the homecoming is what he has been working towards over the last few years.

Cleverly is one of only two current British world champions, and he hopes to restore the image of British boxing after the controversy that followed Dereck Chisora's defeat to Vitali Klitschko.
