Not seen much buzz about this card, but both fights are interesting for different reasons.


Bellew is doing a good job of rebuilding from his close lose to Cleverly, easily having a better run of opposition since. Seems like Hearn and Bellew are keen to go down the WBC route and look to secure a fight with Chad Dawson at some point in the near future. Chilemba represents a good challenge and each fighters' style should prove for a close fight.

Prediction: Bellew UD.

Crolla-Matthews II

The first contest was one of the domestic fights of the year in 2012 and this one should be no different. I see this as another solid 50:50, since the first fight both men have had failed attempts in the same Prizefighter tournament and will be looking to re-establish themselves as two of the best domestic lightweights we have in Britain.

Prediction: Crolla TKO

How do you see these two going?

Big test for Tony imo. Chilemba is boxer with some lateral movement and he certainly isn't as easy to hit or as predictable as his previous foes. Interesting to see how the Bomber plays it. He'll have the edge in power but he's going to have to work a LOT harder to land and he may worry about tiring if he loads up too early. Chilemba can be sneaky as well so Tony will have to watch he doesn't get himself out of position too.
Looking forward to it!
