Bellew v Chilemba II added to Froch v Kessler II bill

Lawrence Lustig

They will meet again just 8 weeks after their first clash in Liverpool on March 30 and Bellew will be looking to settle a score this time around.

“It’s great to have the opportunity to put things right,” said Bellew. “I have to get my head down and work doubly hard in the weeks ahead of the fight to make sure the job gets done properly this time around.

Chilemba travels to England once more to tackle Bellew, and the Malawian intends to shock the Scouser on the biggest stage of all.

“For most opportunity knocks once, I’ve been fortunate and with my blessing of a second chance I will not leave my future in anyone else’s hands,” said Chilemba. “I believe I won the first fight but that’s now irrelevant – but I will be winning the second fight.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn added: “I’m over the moon to add this fight to a special night of boxing. Both men have a score to settle and I take my hat off to them for agreeing the rematch so quickly. I think you will see a different kind of fight this time, no one will leave it to chance and both need to make a statement this time around.”
