Bellew vs. Stevenson or Cloud Targeted For November

Tony Bellew will get his second shot at World title glory when he faces either Adonis Stevenson or Tavoris Cloud for the light heavyweight crown in Canada in November.

Bellew turns 31 on November 30 which is a mooted date for the bout to take place after the WBC ruled the bout had to take place before the end of the year. Quebec City is a likely venue for the clash, with Canadian Stevenson taking a voluntary defence in September against Florida’s Cloud.

The Liverpool star earned the mandatory position after defeating Isaac Chilemba at The O2 in May, with Stevenson claiming the belt with a stunning first round knockout of Chad Dawson in June in Montreal.

“I am delighted Tony has got the shot – and what a perfect potential date for it,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Tony has worked tirelessly to get a second crack at a World title and he’s ready to claim it now – what a dream birthday present it will be when he does.”

Bellew will speak to Sky Sports News today about his second World title shot.
