Review: 2014-03-15, the fight between Tony Bellew and Valery Brudov gets three stars only thanks a spectacular finish, the rest of the fight was pretty boring. Tony Bellew entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 20-2-1 (12 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.6 light heavyweight in the world but in this fight he moved up in weight class to the cruiserweight division after his last fight in which he lost to Adonis Stevenson (=Stevenson vs Bellew).
His opponent, Valery Brudov, has an official record of 41-4-0 (28 knockouts) and he entered as the No.68 in the same weight class, he is 37 years old (six years older than Bellew) and he comes off two consecutive wins after his last defeat suffered in 2012 against Ola Afolabi in a fight valid for the interim WBO cruiserweight title (=Afolabi vs Brudov). Bellew vs Brudov is valid for the vacant WBO International cruiserweight title. Watch the video and rate this fight!
