Bellew Targets Dawson Clash




Tony Bellew wants to set up a clash with Chad Dawson for the WBC light heavyweight title if he beats Roberto Bolonti for the vacant WBC Silver crown at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, on November 17.

 

Bellew believes Dawson is the best light heavyweight in the world and a win over Argentine Bolonti in the chief support bout to Carl Froch’s IBF super middleweight title defence against Yusaf Mack should propel The Bomber into the WBC top five.

 

The Liverpool boxer has his sights set on the WBC title and while he would like to become Dawson’s mandatory challenger, Bellew isn’t ruling out an IBF title shot against champion Tavoris Cloud.

 

 


“I want to put the pressure on someone like Chad Dawson to face me,” he said. “I am not a lucrative match for people to face and I believe I am maximum risk and minimal reward, so I have to force one of these champions into facing me.

 

“It might not be a WBC it might be an IBF challenge to Tavoris Cloud, I don’t know which it is going to be but all I want to do is become a mandatory challenger, very similar to the way Kell Brook has done it.
