Default Bellew Cleverly fight proved most know sod all about boxing

I am no boxing expert. If I am honest I am totally clueless at times (I once predicted Audley Harrison would be world champion ) and more of just a fan than someone of great knowledge of the sport. But even I knew Bellew was not going to be outclassed in here and I actually believed he was going to win it.

90% of people with a prediction for this fight did not give Bellew a chance. Never mind a chance, most were making out that this was David Vs Goliath. You would have thought it was mismatch of the century. It almost convinced me.

One thing I felt certain about was that Bellew would no way be KOd by cleverly. I don't see any fighter in the world stopping Bellew.

I said it because I have watched Bellew since his debut (not watched every fight) and I just could not see some one as determined as him being beaten, not by anyone. I knew he had great boxing skills and was more than just a banger. I do however think my heart ruled my head in making my prediction for the fight, also I think he had gotten in my head with all his pre-fight talk.

Calm down, pal.

You called it wrong, other people called it right and you're criticising their knowledge?

Your not alone Hughes, I have to laugh when some are still feeling vindicated in there predictions yet none of the shit they spoke happened and tbh most on here felt Bellew got it and if the 114-114 judge sided with Bellew on one round we'd have a SD not many would of gave Bellew that. Plenty on here would of had egg on face. ''School him'' ''spark him'' none of that shit happened.

It would be an SD win, not a draw.

One judge went 117-112 to Clev, another judge went 116-113 to Clev, so if the judge that scored it 114-114 had sided with Bellew, then Clev would still have won.
