Tony Bellew: Second fight at cruiserweight

Sky Bet

Tony Bellew is determined to put on a show in front of his home crowd when he takes on Julio Cesar Dos Santos on Saturday.

Brazilian Dos Santos represents Bellew's second challenge since stepping up to cruiserweight, and victory in Liverpool in front of the Sky Sports cameras would take him a step closer to a rematch with bitter rival Nathan Cleverly.

Cleverly fights Alejandro Emilio Valori on the same bill, and Bellew's plan is to steal the show ahead of a possible return fight with the man who outpointed him in 2011.

He said: "I've got questions to answer again, and I always fight proven, tried and tested cruiserweights.

"I believe i'll come good and I believe I'll look good doing it. That's the important thing for me - I want to look good every time I get in the ring now. Winning just isn't enough."

Bellew was speaking to Sky Sports News at Friday's weigh-in, where Anthony Joshua was also on show ahead of his heavyweight contest with veteran Matt Skelton.

Joshua said: "The main thing I'm going in for is the win, and I want to showcase a bit of movement, counter-punching and a bit of dominance. If those tactics produce a knockout I'll be over the moon."

Joshua's fellow Olympians Anthony Ogogo and Luke Campbell are also on a bill which includes local brothers Callum and Stephen Smith.

To watch all the action from Liverpool tune into Sky Sports 1 this Saturday from 7pm.
