If this doesn't happen this year, I can't see it happening in the short/medium term.
If (and its a big if) they both become big/world titlists maybe there'll just be too much money at stake and it'll have to happen!

Stranger things have happened. I couldn't imagine a Chisora/Haye fight at Upton Park on Boxnation 12 months ago!

Knob heads

Hopefully this happens, Bellew deserved the nod in the first fight. Cleverly deserves some credit for at least putting a small degree of pressure on Frank to make the fight, regardless of whether it happens.

I thought the atmosphere was amazing which made it seem better than it was. When I watched it back I didn't think Bellew ever really looked like winning.

I agree. Bellew was really in total control and if he didn't get robbed by his stamina he would have won clearly.

Clev should also fight some world level guys in the meantime.

In 12 months time both will have improved, not only their ability but their standing/ranking so its a no brainer that the rematch would be better AND make them more money.

IMO Clev beat Bellew in his backyard, with a shorter than normal training camp and an injured rib. If they fought now, in Wales I can only see a wider decision win for Clev.
that might be a problem!
