Nathan Cleverly and Juergen Braehmer's promoters disagree over rematch location

Nathan Cleverly should have home advantage in a rematch against Juergen Braehmer, according to Eddie Hearn – but that has already been disputed by the former world champion’s camp.
The Welshman snatched the WBA light-heavyweight title in Braehmer's home country of Germany on Saturday night, forcing an injury withdrawal before the seventh round.
Cleverly's promoter Hearn has now opened the door to a second fight in Wales although his opposite number, Kalle Sauerland, replied "absolutely no chance".
We'd love to do it in Wales but I think the rematch would be even easier for Cleverly.
Hearn told Sky Sports: "If they want the rematch then that's not a problem. We'd love to do it in Wales but I think the rematch would be even easier for Cleverly.
"He's a two-time world champion and we've recovered from this little glitch in British boxing. People should be very proud of him. They don't know how much he wanted that tonight.
"We said in the changing rooms before the fight it was about how much you want it. Cleverly was like a man possessed in the changing room.
"I'm sure Braehmer had a bad arm but he looked like he wanted to go home. Cleverly would have gone on to stop him."
Sauerland added: "We have a rematch clause [which will] definitely go ahead. I don't see why the rematch couldn't take place in the next three or four months."
Braehmer notoriously prefers to box on home soil - he has travelled abroad just once in 51 fights, and that was only to Hungary.
