Tony Bellew to challenge Adonis Stevenson in November
Last updated on .From the section Boxing
Liverpool's Tony Bellew has signed a deal to fight Canadian WBC light-heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson in Quebec City on 30 November.
Bellew, 30, is a former British and Commonwealth champion and was beaten by then WBO champion Nathan Cleverly of Wales in 2011.
But he beat Isaac Chilemba in a rematch in May, having drawn the first fight, to secure a second world title shot.
Stevenson, 36, has been beaten once in 23 fights and will be a big favourite.
The Haiti-born Canadian won the title with a first-round knockout of Chad Dawson in June and defended it with a seventh-round retirement of Tavoris Cloud in September.
Stevenson's only defeat was as a super-middleweight in 2010 and he has 19 knockouts in 22 victories.
