TONY BELLEW will not be happy until he ends Nathan Cleverly's ring career.
The Liverpudlian will make his second appearance at cruiserweight against Julio Cesar Dos Santos on July 12.
Cleverly, 27, is on the same bill in Liverpool against Alejandro Valori and if they both come through their bouts they will meet again in November.
Welshman Cleverly, a former world champion, won their first meeting at light-heavyweight on points.
But Bellew, 31, has promised a different ending this time and said: "I still don't think he wants the fight but when it happens, I will retire him - it is as simple as that.
"I won't be happy until I retire him, I want to hurt him and I want to finish him. I think I will do that.
"At cruiserweight I won't be dying after six rounds, my power won't fall apart, I won't break my hand in the second round.
"I will smash him, I'll stop him and it is simple as that. I won't feel that I've won unless I retire him."
The pair met on Merseyside yesterday but there were no fireworks at the press conference despite previous spats between the two.
Cleverly said: "This is the calm before the storm, it will be different before we fight. There will be fireworks when we meet and I will stop him."
