Clevery Hungers For Bellew Rematch: I'll Beat Him Again!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Nathan Cleverly has no problem with giving a rematch to Tony Bellew.

Former light heavyweight world champion Nathan Cleverly says he is ready to beat Tony Bellew again in an eagerly awaited rematch. Bellew lost a twelve round majority decision to Cleverly in October of 2011.

After getting knocked out by Sergey Kovalev earlier this year, Cleverly announced his plan to move up to the cruiserweight division. He will make that jump in February. Bellew, who got knocked out a few weeks ago by Adonis Stevenson, is also planning to move up to cruiserweight - likely in March.

Bellew wants to get another grudge match going against Cleverly.

Hes made his emotions clear. He dislikes me and thats fine by me, Cleverly told the South Wales Argus. I dont waste any emotions on him. I dont dislike him or like him. I dont waste my energy on him.

Im more interested in my own career than anybody elses but he seems to be concerned with my career all the time. I think it is genuine on his part and it all adds fuel to a rematch, which is very likely to happen at some point.

I won the first one and Im happy to beat him again. It will be a good fight and it will sell because the first one was so good and the second one will generate interest.

That is the type of fight I want to be involved in. Hes coming off the back of a comprehensive defeat like me. Were both making a fresh start in a new weight division and I think in a couple of fights time we could be looking at a rematch.

I dont know...the quality of recent British fighters when stacked up with the big boys (Int'l level) cannot really be compared. They all seem to fall at the first real challenge on the international level. Very exciting when they fight each other on the domestic stage, though it appears a no-con...

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]I said after they first fought that they should just fight each other for the rest of their careers because neither of them are elite. Looks like it might come to fruition[/QUOTE] Agreed.:rofl:

I think if Cleverley had Bellews power he would be a force in that division. Unfortunately he's not a puncher and with the size difference that could stop him becoming 2 weight world champ

I don't think either guy fairs to well at Cw.I don't think it has anything to do with the size and the strength of the guys they'll be facing at Cw,I just think they're both extremely limited fighters neither have superior technical prowess,athleticism,or power to compete at the highest level.
