Miranda Hopes To Knock Bellew Silly, Then Get Froch

Edison Miranda is determined to use Saturday's showdown with Tony Bellew as a stepping stone to a fight with Carl Froch.

The explosive Colombian faces Bellew at Alexandra Palace - but it is Froch's IBF super-middleweight title that he has his sights on.

Miranda's record is littered with top class opponents, including Arthur Abraham, Andrew Ward and Kelly Pavlik, but the fading 31-year-old wants to add another name to the list.

"It was a good victory for Froch against Lucian Bute but I know that if I knock out Tony Bellew, then Froch is the one who will be looking for me. I want to fight Froch," he said.

"Carl Froch against me is one of the best fights you will ever see.

"I am here to fight hard, to put up a good show and to take a KO win home with me. Then Froch will take notice of what I am doing."

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Froch and Bellew, insists Miranda may get his wish if he impresses on Saturday.

"This is a big fight in front of a big audience. If Miranda did something, he'd put himself in the frame for a world title fight," Hearn said.

"Miranda's exciting, is a name and will always be around. One big win when you're Edison Miranda makes you a great opponent for a world a champion."

[QUOTE=MJ406;12486223]last I checked aren't Adonis Stevenson and Donovan George lined up to meet in a IBF Eliminator? how would Miranda jump ahead of the above? ^[/QUOTE] Because it would be a volontary defense for Froch.

LOL, Miranda always talks big sheet then usually gets his azz kicked. But as they say as long as you're dreamin, dream big!

Miranda would be well-served to concentrate on the task at hand. Bellew is a big, strong boy.
