Cleverly takes on Bellew after Braehmer pulls out

BY foxsports • May 19, 2011

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.''
