This is correct.Bellew was hesitant and very modest in his output.Miranda has been beaten from piller to post in many contest and he's shot .

For me it was just a case of Bellew wanting to make sure he had taken any idea out of Miranda's head he could win the fight other than by catching him with a desperate shot.

Once Bellew relaxed a bit more from the 5th round on he picked off Miranda with some good technical boxing broke him down & Miranda looked for a way out.

Miranda has obviously seen better days but for Bellew any mistake saturday & we would all be discussing where does he go?Name opponent & if as planned he may be out again on Froch's undercard it is a fight he can really push on from.

6/10 guys, it's never perfect and I'm never happy but it's a step in the right direction I believe, I stuck to the game plan and got the job done, another fight in November looks good and keeping busy is the biggest factor in my career at this stage IMO.. Thanks again for all your support on here guys..

The gameplan Bellew followed was similar to what I predicted would happen before the fight, with Tony boxing early on and then stepping it up to stop a fatigued Miranda in the late rounds, so I think they got that right. Miranda is beatable but he's dangerous early on so Bellew did the right thing, I think. Having said that, he looked very strong and if he'd gone for it, I think he could have stopped Miranda early but that's nitpicking and you can't fault the performance too much.

Hopefully the next opponent is a good one. I don't expect anything major but maybe someone like Allan Green? Bellew would stop him and it'd be another easy to sell fight.

As a fan, the promising thing is that Bellew looks to be improving in every fight. He's much better now than he was a couple of years ago and if he keeps it up, he'll be knocking on the door of a world title soon.

So people think that Miranda is a world class LHW but Nate Dogg isn't?

Shameful thinking.

I thought it was a good fight Tony, a little reserved at times, but you have to be with Pantera, rushing in would have been daft.
Probably not one of those fights i'll watch time and time again on replay, but still it's another fight in the bank at the next level and hopefully it leads onto a classic down the line that is worth replaying over and over again

Good luck mate and your humility is so refreshing
