Hearn: Cleverly-Bellew Rematch on Nov. 1 or Nov. 29

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport is getting very close to finalizing the details for the anticipated rematch between domestic cruiserweight rivals Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew. They first met in 2011, as light heavyweights, with Cleverly (28-1, 14KOs) winning a close decision over Bellew (22-2-1, 14KOs). In the first fight, both were promoted by Frank Warren, and now both walked across the street to join Hearn.

"I think this fight will be something special. At the moment I am going over some of the final logistics. I’m down to two main options – November 29 in the Echo Arena or November 1 at the MEN in Manchester. Manchester will hold more, about 20,000 versus 12,000, but my instinct is leaning towards Liverpool. I have to take my hat off to Nathan, he went to Tony's backyard before and he is willing to do it again but ultimately the numbers will decide," Hearn wrote in the Daily Mail.

I personally can't wait for this. The first fight was a good watch, and the hatred between the two has only grown since then.
