Tony Bellew's next opponent announced!

Tony 'Bomber' Bellew.
Liverpudlian light-heavyweight Tony Bellew will face Roberto Bolonti on the undercard of Carl Froch Vs Yusaf Mack at Nottingham's Capital Arena on Onovember 17th. It will be Bellew's first defence of his WBC silver light-heavyweight title that he picked up on September 8th when he beat Edison Miranda by 9th round KO.

Bolonti, 33, has a record of 30-1 with 19 KO's and is the current WBC Latino light-heavyweight champion. He is not a top-level fighter but has had a decent career and is a good scalp to have on your record when you are an up and coming fighter. The Argentinian hasn't lost since 2006 and has stopped his last five opponents.

Bellew, 29, is in the form of his life and, with the help of his promoter Eddie Hearn, looks very likely to become a force and world level in the near future. 'Bomber' split with Frank Warren earlier this year and has asked Hearn to make him a very busy man and to cram in as many fights for him as possible. This fight will take place just over two months after his impressive victory of Edison Miranda. A win in this fight will no doubt boost Bellew's value and credentials once again and further guarantee a world title shot sometime next year.
