Bellew-Brudov Set For 3/15, Kell Brook on The Bill

Tony Bellew will face former World Cruiserweight title challenger Valery Brudov in his first fight at the weight at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on March 15, live on Sky Sports, on a massive night for the city’s boxing stars.

Stephen Smith is lining up a massive night and is expected to challenge Fernando David Saucedo for the Argentinian’s WBC Silver Featherweight title in a crunch eliminator bout. Stephen’s older brother Paul is also set for a big night, as he is expected to fight for the outright ownership on the Lord Lonsdale belt with a British Super Middleweight title defence on the card.

The youngest Smith, Callum, is also in action as he looks to build on an incredible year in 2013 where he raced to 9-0 with a stunning sequence of six first-round wins in the Super Middleweight division, the division where Commonwealth champion Rocky Fielding is lining up an all-Liverpool clash with Tony Dodson, who fights in Hull on February 22.

Sheffield Welterweight star Kell Brook and popular London Lightweight Kevin Mitchell have both enjoyed great nights in the Echo Arena and the pair will both be in action as they build to big fights before the summer.

Birmingham’s unbeaten Super Flyweight talent Kal Yafai continues on his path to a first title shot, while exciting Liverpool youngster Robbie Davies Jnr faces his fifth pro fight.

Bellew steps up a weight after challenging Adonis Stevenson for the WBC Light Heavyweight crown in November, and the 31 year old faces a stern test on his debut at Cruiserweight.

Brudov – 41-4 – has five World title challenges to his name and promoter Eddie Hearn expects Bellew to shine on a huge night of boxing on Merseyside.

If Thurman wins the IBF, Brook can just say goodbye to that
