Nathan Cleverly has vowed to step up his quest to become a two-weight world champion by disposing of Tony Bellew in their rematch in Liverpool on November 22.
The Welshman beat Bellew via majority decision in the same city in October 2011 but went on to lose his WBO light-heavyweight title in a knockout defeat to Sergey Kovalev last year.
Bellew also suffered a jolting loss at the hands of Adonis Stevenson in Quebec last November but the pair now campaign at cruiserweight where they hope to muscle back in on the title picture.
There is clearly bad blood between the pair and Bellew insists he will claim a victory comprehensive enough to send Cleverly into retirement.
