Bellew, Cleverly sharing fight card on July 12
- Updated: June 5, 2014
Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly will both be in action on July 12 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, as the two will share the spotlight before an eventual rematch.
The two first met on Oct. 2011, with Cleverly earning a majority decision win to retain his title at the time. Now with both fighters at cruiserweight, they again are on a collision course to go head to head.
Matchroom Boxing is holding a press conference on June 10, where promoter Eddie Hearn will announce the opponents for each fighter.
“July 12 promises to be a great night in Liverpool – as we sign off for the summer with a bang,” said Hearn. “There’s real animosity between Tony and Nathan as they aim to overcome one final hurdle before they meet in October. Anthony fights in Liverpool for the first time as a pro and Callum and Rocky will be in big step ups.”
Unbeaten super middleweight Rocky Fielding, brothers Paul, Stephen and Callum Smith and former Olympic heavyweight Anthony Joshua will all be in action.
Tickets go on sale at midday on June 10 priced £30, £40, £60 and ringside seats at £100 available from the Echo Arena.
