CEFN Fforest fighter Nathan Cleverly's cruiserweight debut has been postponed once more after he pulled out of his February fight with Illunga Makubu.

Cleverly was due to face the dangerous Makubu in Monaco next month, but the fight has been cancelled after the Welshman suffered an injury.

This is the second time that Cleverly has put off his ring return, with injury problems also forcing him out of a fight against Daniel Amman in November scheduled for the Copper Box Arena in London.

"He has sustained a minor injury and will not be fighting in Monte Carlo on February 1 and we are about to re-schedule a fight for him," said promoter Frank Warren.

Cleverly is hoping to rebuild his career after losing his WBO light-heavyweight to Sergey Kovalev in August.
