Nathan Cleverly confirms cruiserweight return

Nathan Cleverly will return to the ring next month as a cruiserweight against Australia's Daniel Ammann.

Nathan Cleverly has revealed that he will return to the ring next month as a cruiserweight.

It will be the first time that the 25-year-old has featured since his maiden defeat at light-heavyweight level to Russian Sergey Kovalev in August.

However, the Welshman has insisted that he is now ready to contest for the vacant Commonwealth title with Australian Daniel Ammann at London's Copper Box Arena on Saturday, November 30.

"I'm ready to return and I can't wait for November 30 at the Copper Box Arena and show that Nathan Cleverly is back," he said. "I've got the hunger and desire back and I want to be a world champion again. I miss having the belt around my waist, but it's not just about the belt.

"I didn't want to let my fans down, who have supported me in my career, my family down and more importantly I didn't want to let myself down by going out on a loss. I knew deep down that I wanted to fight again and I just needed time to focus on what I wanted to do."

Dereck Chisora will compete on the same card in a bout against Matteo Modugno.
