BELLEW LOOKS PAST NEXT OPPONENT IN HOPES OF FACING DAWSON

Press Release: Light heavyweight Tony "The Bomber" Bellew wants to set up a clash with WBC light heavyweight titlist "Bad" Chad Dawson [still recognized by the WBC despite losing the true world championship to Andre Ward], if Bellew beats Roberto Bolonti on the November 17th pay-per-view event from Nottingham, England. The Nov. 17th show will be headlined by  
Carl Froch's  IBF 168-pound title defense against Yusaf Mack.

"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.
 
"I believe Chad Dawson is the best light heavyweight in the world. I know he had the contentious fight with Jean Pascal but I believe he would have stopped Pascal if the fight would have been allowed to carry on, so I think Pascal got really lucky the cut came when it did.
 
"I do believe that Dawson is the best in the division and aside from him I feel everyone is on a level playing field. Bernard Hopkins, in terms of experience, is up there with Dawson but as an actual fighter I believe Dawson is proven to be the best light heavyweight out there. But I would be happy to fight him. There is now a blueprint to beat Chad Dawson after what Andre Ward did to him, so I would be happy to go in there and carry out what Ward did to him."

Bellew-Bolonti will be distributed in the U.S. for live viewing at 3:00 PM/ET - 12:00 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DirectTV, Dish Network and Avail-TVN for a suggested retail price of only $29.95. "True Brit" will also be available to view via Fight Now TV, America's only 24-hour combat sports and entertainment channel, on Cablevision channel 464 as part of the iO Gold package.
