Bellew vs. Chilemba Final WBC Eliminator in Play

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to the Liverpool Echo, there is a strong possibility that Tony Bellew (19-1, 12KOs) will face Isaac Chilemba (20-1-1, 9KOs) in a WBC final eliminator on March 30th at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. The winner will receive a shot at the WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson. Both of the boxers hold recent victories over dangerous veteran Edison Miranda. Chilemba won a decision over him in February of last year, and then Bellew stopped him in nine rounds in September. Bellew-Chilemba sizes up to be a classic boxer vs. puncher matchup.
