Eddie Hearn took to Sky Sports News today to announce that Tony Bellew's rematch with Isaac Chilemba has been added to Matchroom's May 25th bill at London's O2 Arena.  

Carl Froch, 30-2 (22), meets Mikkel Kessler, 46-2 (35), for the IBF and WBA Super World 168lb in the main event.  Froch is the current IBF titlist, "The Cobra" wants to avenge his 2010 defeat to Kessler, a hard-fought split decision defeat, and will be roared on by an expectant crowd.

Bellew, 19-1-1 (12) meets Chilemba, 20-1-2 (9), in a WBC world title eliminator rematch on the undercard in a rematch of their March 30th draw, which Bellew bitterly disputed in the aftermath of the 112-116, 116-115, 114-114 decision.

"It was tough to split them on the night, but both men believe they can go on to win (the rematch)," said Hearn, who confirmed that the fight will be a world title eliminator as well as revealing that George Groves's opponent will be unveiled later this week.

No complaints here, i'd much rather see this than some random fight that means nothing. Interesting that Chilemba went back on his original 'NO UK' rematch.

If I watch that one I'll need to set the alarm for the Froch fight. Zero interest in this rematch. I bet Bellew won't be shouting about 'going to war' etc this time.

That was quick work. Eddie Hearn having a monopoly on Sky dates must make his job so easy. Warren is in massive trouble. Bellew is decent but the fact that his promoter can deliver him these fights and keep him active is quite something. Serious prospects like George Groves must be licking thei...

As bad as the first fight was, I don't mind watching this on the undercard along with Groves. Pretty decent card. Champions League final in a pub in the o2 beforehand could take priority though.

[QUOTE=komodo]Don't you mean you've the CL final to watch before the main event?[/QUOTE] You are extremely true, sir. Although paint drying is still more watchable than Bellew-Chilemba II.
