Nathan Cleverly reveals that a rematch with Tony Bellew could be an option despite reports linking him with a fight against Chad Dawson.

Nathan Cleverly has claimed that a rematch with Tony Bellew is an option for him in the near future.

WBO light-heavyweight champion Cleverly defeated Bellew in a controversial bout last October and admits that he may offer him a second fight.

Cleverly said: "He looked impressive and that's an option.

"It's not ideal. If he had a world title belt then that would help, we could have an unification fight.

"It's a fight I want anyway, because I want to put the record straight. I think the last fight was a good fight and I think a second one would be as well."

Cleverly is also reportedly being lined up to meet WBC champion Chad Dawson.
