Bellew on Cleverly: He's a W*nker and a Scumbag!

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

TONY BELLEW has vowed to end "scumbag" Nathan Cleverly's career when the pair meet again.

The Liverpool cruiserweight stopped Brazilian Julio Dos Santos inside five rounds in his hometown on Saturday.

And Cleverly, who had earlier beaten Alejandro Valori in four to keep up his side of the bargain, was ringside at the end and the pair almost came to blows after a heated exchange.

Security had to separate the two as Bellew tried to get out of the ring to attack his bitter rival.

Former light-heavyweight world champion Cleverly beat Bellew in 2011 - a decision the Liverpudlian still hotly disputes.

But the pair's rivalry goes much deeper than that as Bellew's outburst at the Welshman proved with their mutual hatred boiling over for years.

Bellew, 31, said: "He's a w*nker, a scumbag and I hate him.

"When he beat me in 2011 he said in the ring 'that's the toughest fight I've ever had and we are never fighting again'.

"He doesn't want the rematch, he doesn't want to fight me again. It's only because it's a big pay day for him.

"But after the first fight I watched the press conference back and he said that he won comfortable. He couldn't say that to my face though.

"I begged Frank Warren [the pair's promoter in 2011] for a rematch and the word from him was he didn't want it. I'm the soft lad who gives anyone I have a close fight with a rematch.

"I cannot wait to beat him whenever the fight is. I don't want to just win, I want to make sure he never fights again.

"I've never wanted to cause harm to anyone before. But I do to him."

Promoter Eddie Hearn has booked Liverpool's Echo Arena for November 29, but he could move it to Manchester's Phones4U arena or London's O2 Arena in October if interest is high enough.

But Cleverly is not concerned if he has to come to Bellew's hometown again and has vowed to silence his rival.

He said: "I cannot remember what he said to me at the end of the fight because he talks so much cr*p.

"I hate him and I will finally silence him when we meet again.

"He is always mouthing off. He doesn't like me as I was always in his way to a world title.

"When we meet again it will be a more conclusive ending this time."

Eddie Hearn also wants Anthony Joshua to fight for the British heavyweight title at Vicarage Road next summer.

The Watford-born Olympic gold medallist flattened veteran Matt Skelton in two rounds to pick up his seventh professional win.

Bellew talks a good game. It's just a shame that he doesn't have the ability, inside the ring, to match these spurious promises.

Anyone remember Cleverly's Dad getting the police on one of Bellews entourage? Nathan hates Bellew as much as Bellew hates Nathan,it's just that Cleverly isn't hotheaded like Bellew. And for folks who say that Clev looks like he's gonna burst…

When Bellew know he's in a fight (Cleverly, Stevenson), he seems to have to hate his opponent. He made it personal with Cleverly in their first fight for no apparent reason. While a fight with Cleverly will be interesting. By…
