Cleverly earned a majority-decision win at light heavyweight over Bellew, and after the Liverpudlian mocked him after beating Valery Brudov on Saturday evening, the former WBO titlist has revealed that he would welcome a rematch in the future.
The 27-year-old told Ringside: "I was watching at home and was actually laughing at the television. It's all good fun and I take it with a pinch of salt, basically. But when it happens, he's going to get spanked again.
"I think that Tony's only chance to beat me was in that fight in Liverpool. I was 24, I went into the fight at several weeks' notice, in his backyard and that was his best chance of beating me.
"Now I'm at cruiserweight, I am 27 and I'm not yet at my peak but heading towards it. I am going to destroy this guy when we fight again."
Cleverly is expected to announce plans for his cruiserweight debut next week.
