Bellew: I Would Have Walloped Cleverly at The Presser

Tony Bellew has demanded a showdown with new WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly.

The pair were due to meet last weekend, with Bellew a late replacement.

But he pulled out when he couldn't make the weight.

However a clash with Cleverly looks a natural one to make, with Cleverly and Bellew already domestic rivals.

And the scouser spiced up a potential fight this week with another outburst against his Welsh foe.

"He doesn't like me and I don't like him," said Bellew, who nearly came to blows with Cleverly at a press conference last Thursday.

"I genuinely cannot stand the sight of Nathan Cleverly. When I see his face I want to punch it. I don't like it. I was close at the press conference.

"If I'd got the other side of Frank I would have walloped him.

"Nathan Cleverly is intimidated by me. Deep down, when he goes to bed at night, when he closes his door, when he is all alone, Nathan Cleverly is scared of Tony Bellew. I know that. He is intimidated by me.

"I was told the pay-per-view sales had started to go absolutely crazy after the press conference.

"Frank Warren knows the business so he's obviously going to want this fight to happen.

"He knows it is a money-spinner, it's massive, and if you ask me it's got pay-per-view written all over it."
