Default Re: Just re-watched Cleve vs Bellew. I find it impossible not to give Bellew 6 round

I've re-watched it since and now I scored it a draw (114 - 114, six each). That I think is the correct score.

To be honest if somebody wanted to score it for Cleverly then I couldn't complain, it was that close. Only a score of 115 - 114 though, anything more than that for either of them is just plain wrong.

For Cleverly, his dad and FW to bang on about him "outclassing" Bellew is laughable quite frankly, Tony outboxed and out-smarted Nathan him for long periods during the fight and he probably would have won had he not gassed out in the later rounds.

I hope these two have a rematch at some point in the future because not only would it be a great watch but it would also settle the score. The way Cleverly's going though, expect him to keep fighting bum of the month for a long time.
A supprice to a lot of the people in the fight was that Clev did not really seem to outspeed Bellew untill maybe the end when Bellew was tired.

Bellews *******s must have been like mellons after the pounding they took as well. I had forgotten how bad some of them were.
