Boxing Betting: Bellew reignites rivalry with Cleverly

The home favourite, who is very well known with boxing betting fans and pay per head sportsbooks, had a successful second fight at cruiserweight after his victory over Valery Brudov, but sparks flew outside the ring immediately after the clash.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that earlier on, Cleverly defeated Alejandro Valori on the same bill in a fourth round stoppage, and boxing betting fans saw that afterwards both fighters were interviewed together, with the wins pointing to a rematch between the rivals.
Price per head services and boxing betting fans remember when in October 2011, Cleverly was able to successfully defend his WBO light-heavyweight title against Bellew with very good boxing odds before he lost the belt last August to Russia’s Sergey Kovalev.
Bellew said: “He knows I want to do it. He knows what I want and we can do it. I ain’t 175 (pounds) now. We both know deep down that I was dead at them scales. The tables have turned son.
“I ain’t a 16-fight novice who has only fought at British title level. I am now an established pro who has fought better pros than you in lesser fights.
“Let’s get this straight, I’ve achieved the same (as you). You’re a plastic world champion. You were never a true world champion. We fought for a belt that shouldn’t have even been a world title. It was no better than a domestic title. Forget that belt, forget everything. I just want to hurt you.”
Cleverly was very eager to take on his old rival, coming out fighting as well, and pay per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see the action.
“Don’t worry about this talking. I’ve already come to his home town and beat this guy and guess what? I’m going to do it again and this time it will be in Cardiff,” he said.
“Keep on talking mate because I’ve already beaten you. I’m going to spank you again. I’ve already spanked you and I’m going to do it again.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn indicated that the rematch would happen before the end of the year, and fans all over the world can’t wait to see what the boxing odds will look like when this fight gets underway.

“We’re looking at October or November, here, Manchester or London, it doesn’t matter. It’s going to be a great fight,” Hearn said.
