Former WBC super middleweight champion Badou “The Ripper” Jack (21-1-2, 12 KOs) plans on becoming the second fighter to knockout WBA World light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (30-3, 16 KOs) this Saturday night in their title fight on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cleverly-Jack will be on the televised portion of the Showtime pay-per-view card. It’s not exactly a PPV worthy fight, but the entire undercard appears to have been done on the cheap despite the huge money that will be pouring in from the boxing and MMA fans that will be purchasing the fight on PPV.

It’s a difficult fight to predict, as Jack didn’t look so great in his last 2 fights against James DeGale and Lucian Bute. Both fights were scored draws. Bute and DeGale fought well enough to deserve wins in the minds of a lot of boxing fans.

However, he said fans should expect a good fight from him this Saturday.

“Right now I’m just excited to be here in front of the fans. I can’t wait to put on a show Saturday night. I’m going to knock Nathan Cleverly out,” said Jack in making his prediction for Saturday.

But in quick retaliative jab, the champ, Nathan Cleverly said: “I just told him welcome to the division. He’s going to find out the hard way. I’m going to give him a rude introduction to the division and show him how a world champion does it,” said Cleverly.
