Boxing: Cleverly up for Bellew rematch

The WBO light-heavyweight champion, Nathan Cleverly, says he would consider a rematch against Tony Bellew.

The Welshman outpointed Bellew last October, although one judge scored the attritional, ill-tempered bout as a draw.

Liverpudlian Bellew bounced back from the first loss of his career to stop Danny McIntosh last weekend and retain his British title. "He [Bellew] looked impressive and that's an option," said Cleverly, who is also considering WBC champion Chad Dawson.
