Weights: Cleverly vs Bellew, Degale vs Wilczewski
WBO World Light-Heavyweight Champion Nathan Cleverly and champion Tony Bellew both weighed in today for their world title fight tomorrow (Saturday 15th of October) at the Liverpool Echo Arena.
In front of a capacity crowd at the Contemporary Urban Centre in Liverpool, unbeaten Welshman Cleverly weighed just under the limit at 12st 6lb 4oz [174.25], while undefeated challenger Bellew was spot on at 12st 7lb .
A raging Bellew had to be dragged away by security staff during the head-to-head photo-call, while a calm and smiling Cleverly watched on.
James DeGale weighed-in at 11st 13lb 8oz [167.5] for his European Super-Middleweight title fight against the champion Piotr Wilczewski came in at 11st 13lb 12oz [167.75].
The fight will be LIVE and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456) and on the latest generation of Freeview HD televisions (Freeview Channel 112) with coverage starting at 7pm.
Later that night, also live will be the WBC World Light-Heavyweight Championship between the legendary Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson.
Bellews temperament is going to lose him this fight, this idiot is so unprofessional he was a hot head in the amateurs tooComment by Gypsy John Fury on 10-14-2011
My money's on Bellew to get KO'd in four; he's often dropped early in fights, and Clev is the highest calibre opponent he's ever faced.Comment by Box Up! on 10-14-2011
