Steely eyed: can a focussed Bellew pluck Stevenson's belt?

Carl Froch and George Groves battled it out for world-title gold last weekend but on Saturday it is Tony Bellew's turn.

The Bomber will fight Canadian puncher Adonis Stevenson for the WBC light-heavyweight belt in Quebec City, and you will be able to see how he gets on by tuning into Sky Sports 2 from 1am (Sunday morning).

Bellew was outpointed by British rival Nathan Cleverly the last time he fought for a world title, in Liverpool in 2011, but will feel confident of going one better this time after finally seeing of the talented Isaac Chilemba.

The 30-year-old drew with the Malawian in March but defeated him on the undercard of Froch's duel with Mikkel Kessler at London's O2 Arena two months later and appears in good spirits if his recent appearance on Ringside is anything to go by.

However, Bellew must be wary of Stevenson, 36, who won his strap with a first-round knockout of Chad Dawson in June, retained it by overcoming Tavoris Cloud in September - and has a penchant for knocking his opponents out.

Bellew-Stevenson is the star attraction on the night but the man that ended Cleverly's run with the WBO light-heavyweight title, Sergey Kovalev, will also be lacing up his gloves for the maiden defence of his belt.

Kovalev - whose only slight blemish on his 23-fight record is the draw he had with American Grover Young two years ago - will combat World Amateur Championship silver medallist Ismail Sillakh.

So for a stellar night of boxing make sure you divert your eyes to Sky Sports.
