he just needs a few more andre ward style "masterclasses" with his silky skills and he should be number 1 in his division by the end of the year...

He's every bit as world class as Nathan Cleverley and thats an absolute fact.

If Bellew had the WBO you'd have to think he could beat the guys Cleverly beat.

Cleverly owes Bellew a rematch.

I like his attitude. Froch-like in some respects.

I scored a draw at worst for Bellew. Nothing against Clev but he's no Calzaghe just yet.

Clev at his worst Bellew at his best in that fight it was and Clev still won! Reminded me of Eubank V Ray Close

I don't think thats the case. Bellew boxed brilliantly admittedly but Cleverley was hittable in his other fights too- he was good against Murat, and as he was coming through but he seems to have neglected his skills in favour of windmilling and trading.

Entertaining though, at least it will be when we see him in with relevant people.

He needs to leave Allegedly and get more fights.

Whilever he stays put his development will be stunted.

It was only Tony's tank that let him down IMO. If he had managed to keep up the same pace he would have taken it (I also had it a draw at worst).

He was Jabbing #Clevs head off.

Good post, Bellew did box well but i also think Bellew got to Clev with his bully boy tactics which resulted in a very poor performance by Clev, Bellew is a one paced puncher that will get found out before the year is out mark my words
