Now that a re-match, albeit at a higher weight level, looks certain to be forthcoming, all that remains to be seen is when it?ll occur.

With both fighters attached to the Matchroom Sports group, the possibility of the fight being delivered is excellent.

Following his victory, on Saturday night, Nathan Cleverly was quick to call Tony Bellew out and, as you?d expect the Liverpudlian fighter hasn?t taken long to respond, remarking about the forthcoming potential match-up after stopping the Brazilian fighter Julio Cesar Dos Santos in the fifth round,

?The rematch will be completely different. He understands that at cruiserweight this is a completely different fight.?

?I won?t be dying after six rounds and, this time, my power will be a threat from start to finish.?

It?ll certainly be a different fight with both boxers having left their light-heavyweight days behind them. However, watching both fighters on Saturday night, to me Cleverly looked to have a certain calmness about him, the Welsh fighter looked slick and comfortable at the new weight.

Bellew whilst there?s no denying he has the punch power to trouble opponents, looked a little heavy around the waist and whilst Cleverly may have been flattened when he lost his light-heavyweight world title, I don?t reckon he?ll let Bellew get that close and could well produce a master class in the art of punch and move to frustrate Bellew.
