Adonis Stevenson-Tony Bellew Purse Bid on July 26th

The WBC have set a purse bid date of July 26 for Tony Bellew to challenge Adonis Stevenson for the light heavyweight World title.

Bellew claimed the mandatory challenger position by defeating Isaac Chilemba in a final eliminator at the O2 Arena on May 25, while Stevenson stunned former champ Chad Dawson with a first round KO to win the belt in his native Canada on June 8.

Stevenson has requested an interim bout against former IBF champ Tavoris Cloud in September but the WBC will only grant this if all parties are contracted to the Tony Bellew fight which must happen within 90 days of their bout.

This is an easier fight for Bellew than Chad Dawson would have ever been. He would have gotten humiliated by Dawson, but Stevenson is very beatable. I'm not a Bellew fan at all, but don't sleep on him here...
