Tony Bellew called out by one of his former opponents

Bellew has options for next fight.

Andonis Stevenson has thrown his hat into the ring and offered Tony Bellew the chance of a rematch.

Tony Bellew may be attempting to call out Andre Ward from retirement, but Stevenson, who beat Bellew in 2013 when the pair fought for the light-heavyweight title, believes the Liverpudlian should seek revenge for that knockout win.

The Canadian, who holds the WBC title at light-heavyweight, told Sky Sports: "Tony Bellew needs to get a rematch because when I lost, the first thing I knew I would do is get a rematch and knock him out - and did.”

"You have to fight again the guy who knocked you out, except me! If I fight Bellew again, I am going to knock him out again. It would be exciting, though."

Jack could be on the right lines with those comments, as Bellew has already fought and beaten the two other boxers to inflict a defeat on him in the past.

Isaac Chilemba and Nathan Cleverly were both beaten after being victorious first time around and Stevenson remains the only other blemish on Bellew’s record.

Bellew seems intent to face Ward, who appeared in the same Hollywood film 'Creed'. Although the 34-year-old American has not fought since he retired last June, yet the unbeaten fighter remains a huge draw.

Stevenson seems keen to fight Bellew in the UK and has even earmarked the undercard of the potential Wilder vs Joshua clash.

"I would like to fight in the UK. I don't have a problem with coming there for this fight. I am going to knock him out in the UK. I have lots of UK fans, so I will come and do it again."

"They are doing Joshua-Wilder, so it would be exciting if I was on their undercard, at catchweight, fighting Bellew.”

In the meantime, Stevenson fights tricky customer Badou Jack next Saturday night.
