Saturday's main event between WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly, and challenger Tony Bellew, took another turn this evening after BBC's 5 Live radio show revealed that Bellew would not be able to get down to the light heavyweight limit of 175-pounds in a safe manner. The discussion will now turn to a change of opponent for Cleverly or a catch-weight contest between the two bitter rivals. The fight headlines a packed card at the O2 Arena in London. Bellew stepped in after Cleverly's original opponent, Juergen Braehmer, withdrew at the late hour on Tuesday.

Knew this would be an issue. After press rumours that he was too far away from the weight and with him being a big light heavyweight, it was doubtful he was in and around the 175lb limit. Fight will have to be around 180lb.
