Cleverly takes on Bellew after Braehmer pulls out

Nathan Cleverly will defend his newly acquired WBO light

heavyweight title against Tony Bellew on Saturday after reigning

champion Juergen Braehmer was stripped of the belt.

Promoter Frank Warren says Braehmer of Germany pulled out of the

bout at London’s O2 Arena, citing an eye injury.

Cleverly (21-0, 10 knockouts) says Bellew (15-0, 10 KOs) ”has a

different style from Braehmer, so I have to change my game

plan.”
