Nathan Cleverly says that he will be defending his WBO light-heavyweight title against Shawn Hawk this weekend with the support of singer Tom Jones and actor Mickey Rourke.

Nathan Cleverly has revealed that Welsh singer Tom Jones and American actor Mickey Rourke will be walking with him into the ring when he takes on Shawn Hawk this weekend.

The 25-year-old will defend his WBO light-heavyweight title for the fourth time when he takes on US fighter Hawk at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

"I've spoken with Mickey three times this week and he said it will be a privilege to walk into the ring with me," Cleverly told The Sun. "He has boxed and is a great fight fan, just like Tom who will be walking into the ring with me."

Cleverly was originally scheduled to fight Ryan Coyne but the bout was called off due to a contract dispute.
