This Saturday, on the undercard of the Froch v Kessler II clash, at the O2 Arena, Tony Bellow features.

Bellow faces an opponent he faced, back in March, in a WBC light-heavyweight final eliminator held at the Liverpool Echo Arena, a fight that ended in a draw and, to be brutally honest, majorly disappointed those watching it.

However, this time around, at the O2 Arena, thirty year-old Bellew reckons he?s going to up his game in his re-match with Isaac Chilemba remarking ahead of the clash,

?I didn?t perform last time, it?s as simple as that. I didn?t last time, it?s as simple as that. I didn?t perform to anywhere near the best of my ability or my potential and I was very disappointed with myself.?

?While I still think I won, and he knows I won deep down, I still didn?t perform well enough and I?m paying for that by having this rematch.?


But, continuing with a barbed comment about his opponent, Bellew adds;

?To make a great fight happen, it takes two to tango and it takes two guys who really want to have a fight.?

?The big difference this time will be my output.?

?I?m not going to stop after seven rounds.?

?I?m not going to fall apart halfway through the fight.?


It promises to be a lively encounter and we can only hope that it provides more entertainment than the original fight.
