Cleverly Willing To Give Bellew Homefield Advantage

Nathan Cleverly says he will go to Liverpool to take on Tony Bellew.

The pair could meet this autumn in a massive domestic grudge match.

WBO light-heavyweight champion Cleverly is looking for an opponent to make the first defence of his title against.

And Commonwealth and British champion Bellew fits the bill.

Cleverly has revealed that he would have no problem traveling to his rival's home city to make the fight happen.

"I'm a professional and will fight wherever makes most sense in terms of getting people through the door," he told local paper The Campaign Series.

"I'd love it to be in Wales and as the champion, I get more of a say in that really.

"But the Motorpoint Arena is probably too small, the Millennium Stadium too big at this stage maybe and the Cardiff City Stadium, which would be awesome, doesn't have a roof.

"So if it ends up being at an arena, why not Liverpool?

"It's just a ring at the end of the day and if I have to smash up Bellew in his hometown, that's the way it is. I've got a job to do and wherever the fight is, I will do it."
