Tony Bellew: Cleverly is The Weakest World Champion

Tony Bellew slated the absent Danny McIntosh who failed to show up at their press conference on Wednesday.

Bellew will defend his British light-heavyweight title against McIntosh, who cited travel problems for failing to reach Liverpool.

However, the Liverpudlian was having none of that, and substituted 'Big Mac' with a hamburger from the down the road.

"It is total disrespect from Danny to the press, Sky Sports and to me - it's pathetic really," said Bellew. "I know what he's trying to do and there's no point trying to play mind games with me.

"I don't eat Big Macs but I'll make an exception on Friday night - he's getting chewed up and spat out. The problem is that he's only coming for the cheque, he might walk off with a good payday but he'll have a big defeat and a bust up face to show for his night."

Bellew lost his unbeaten record in a brave world title challenge against Nathan Cleverly last October, but said that was his best performance of his career so far and looking for a quick return to a higher level.

"I'm coming off the back of my best performance and I feel that I have been punished for fighting so well," said Bellew. "I've been left on the shelf for way too long and I'll take it out on Danny on Friday.

"Cleverly is the weakest world champion, there's no doubt in my mind about that. But he doesn't want it (a rematch), so let's move on and look at better fighters.

"The fact is that he is not fighting the right fighters - if I was fighting carpet fitters and plumbers I wouldn't be happy and there's something wrong there.

"Danny is a bigger threat than Tommy Karpency, a guy who went back to his corner and wanted out after the third round - that's not right. But there's more out there than Nathan for me, I will fight anyone and I guarantee excitement, bums on seats and TV viewers."

Man I would not be calling someone the weakest champ if I got beat by him in my hometown.

If you lost to the weakest champ maybe you should keep that one quiet!

I would pretty much put Cleverly and Shumenov in the same class. Cleverly hasn't beaten anyone of particular note (Bellew included) and Shumenov never really won a title since he was beaten twice by Campillo and had to have crooked Vegas judges give him a belt. Both have fought nobodies since get...

Agree with IIG - Bellew's got a huge case of sour grapes here and needs to move on. He's come out with a lot of bs since - first he said he broke his left hand in the 4th round - which is why he stopped using the jab so much. Now he's saying he broke his right hand in the second - well he u...

I like Bellew, but I wish he'd stop whining about Cleverly. It was a close fight, but he clearly lost while still showing his class. If he keeps winning, I'm sure they'll meet up again.
