Tony Bellew vs. Juergen Braehmer Ordered By The EBU

By Per Ake Persson

British light heavyweight Tony Bellew, 19-1, has been nominated as official challenger for EBU light heavyweight champ Juergen Braehmer, 39-2. There´s now a period for negotiations before the EBU calls for purse bids. Both men have their eyes on world titles though and Braehmer also won a WBO eliminator when he beat Eduard Gutknecht and won the EBU title.

The Bellew-Chilemba winner is expected to face full WBC champion Chad Dawson.
