Bellew: To My Twitter Abusers, Stick it Up Your Arse!

Tony Bellew got the job done at the second time of asking against Isaac Chilemba to earn himself a mandatory shot at the WBC light-heavyweight title. The Liverpudlian was left disappointed in March when he could only draw with Chilemba in Liverpool when the pair contested their final eliminator first time around.

Bellew vowed to get the job done after securing a quick rematch on the undercard of Carl Froch's clash with Mikkel Kessler at the O2 Arena, and won comfortably to set up a meeting with the winner of Chad Dawson's defence against Adonis Stevenson.

Bellew, who came in with a record of 19-1-1 with 12KO wins, was too placid by his own admission in their first encounter and the rematch started more promisingly than their first bout. That victory was confirmed at the conclusion, with the Briton winning via scores of 116-112, 117-112 and 116-112.

Bellew said: "I went straight back into camp and there were times in training when I was done, I've hated boxing in the last few weeks. But I've dug in. I've tortured myself since the last fight and put up with some stick but I got in there tonight and stuck to the plan. I was much better tonight. To all you people abusing me on Twitter, stick it up your arse."
