Ahead of his bout with bitter rival Tony Bellew in Liverpool on Saturday night, Nathan Cleverly took part in a public workout in Cardiff on Monday afternoon.
The feuding duo finally step in the ring for their highly anticipated rematch at the Echo Arena on Saturday, with Cleverly looking to repeat his win from the first meeting.
However, the Welshman insists that this fight will not go the distance and he emphasised the fact that he feels much more comfortable at cruiserweight.
While he concedes that Bellew does possess more power and it will be a big test for him to overcome in dealing with his shots, he believes that he will be able to cope with it and silence his rival once and for all.
Bellew is set to participate in his own public workout on Tuesday, before the final press conference on Thursday and then the two fighters will be at the weigh-in on Friday to conclude what is likely to be a fiery and explosive fight week.
Cleverly and Bellew are of course the main event on Saturday night, with the likes of James DeGale, George Groves, Callum Smith and Anthony Joshua all featuring on an impressive undercard.
