Tony Bellew Warns Cleverly: I'll Do Worse Than Kovalev

By Edward Chaykovsky

Domestic rivals Nathan Cleverly (27-1, 13KOs) and Tony Bellew (21-2-1, 13KOs) are ready to go to war one more time. Cleverly traveled to Bellew's backyard of Liverpool in 2011 and won a twelve round majority decision. Now both fighters are promoted by Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, and both fighters have moved north, by 25-pounds, to the cruiserweight division. Both want the rematch to happen next. Bellew was at ringside in Cardiff and watched Cleverly make his cruiserweight debut with a two round blowout of Sean Corbin.

"I'll be honest I was a little bit worried but when I looked at Corbin I was less worried. He came and did a job here. Let's be totally and brutally honest here, Sean Corbin makes Valery Brudov look like Ivan Drago - it's as simple as that," Bellew said.

"If he faces me, he's going to revisit mental demons again. Let's get something straight, you come to me mate, you come to me. Some people think he beat me and some people think he did not. There was no clear winner in that first fight. That's what makes for great rematches. He thinks he won and I think I won. But he got the decision."

"Next time no judges wil be needed, I will do worse than Kovalev, I will do worse than Kovalev. The move [to cruiser] suits me a lot more than it suits him."

I mean, what goes on in these guys heads? Bellew is a footnote at best. Somehow he thinks hes thinks moving to cruiserweight makes him the new Mike Tyson? Get a fkin grip son. At least when ppl like Froch…
