Promoter Frank Warren was shocked to read Tony Bellew's position regarding his furture fights being presented on BoxNation. In an article which appeared earlier today on, Bellew told Terry Dooley that he wants gain further exposure by fighting on a network like Sky Sports, because he believes BoxNation won't give him enough exposure to further his career.

Warren, who holds a financial stake in BoxNation, says the channel is growing in popularity and they plan to continue their efforts in securing the biggest fights possible for the British fight fans.

Warren revealed that Nathan Cleverly will likely defend his WBO light heavyweight title in the first week on July. If the WBO doesn't order a mandatory, then Warren will explore a possible rematch between Cleverly and Bellew. Warren has spoken to Cleverly about the rematch and plans to sit down with Bellew in the coming weeks to go over his career options.

[QUOTE=NoLove]I used to like him on Setanta but now he pisses me off. He seems to think because everyone loved his style to go further with it and now he just comes across as annoying. And Paul Smith commentating? Could they find anyone duller?[/QUOTE] That's because he wasn't running the show...
