Miranda Hopes To Knock Bellew Silly, Then Get Froch

Edison Miranda is determined to use Saturday's showdown with Tony Bellew as a stepping stone to a fight with Carl Froch.

The explosive Colombian faces Bellew at Alexandra Palace - but it is Froch's IBF super-middleweight title that he has his sights on.

Miranda's record is littered with top class opponents, including Arthur Abraham, Andrew Ward and Kelly Pavlik, but the fading 31-year-old wants to add another name to the list.

"It was a good victory for Froch against Lucian Bute but I know that if I knock out Tony Bellew, then Froch is the one who will be looking for me. I want to fight Froch," he said.

"Carl Froch against me is one of the best fights you will ever see.

"I am here to fight hard, to put up a good show and to take a KO win home with me. Then Froch will take notice of what I am doing."

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Froch and Bellew, insists Miranda may get his wish if he impresses on Saturday.

"This is a big fight in front of a big audience. If Miranda did something, he'd put himself in the frame for a world title fight," Hearn said.

"Miranda's exciting, is a name and will always be around. One big win when you're Edison Miranda makes you a great opponent for a world a champion."

LOL, Miranda always talks big sheet then usually gets his azz kicked. But as they say as long as you're dreamin, dream big!

Miranda would be well-served to concentrate on the task at hand. Bellew is a big, strong boy.
