Tony Bellew promises to "nail" Adonis Stevenson

Liverpool boxer Tony Bellew is threatening to "nail" Adonis Stevenson in their world title bout on Saturday.

Tony Bellew has said that he will "nail" champion Adonis Stevenson when the pair meet in their WBC light-heavyweight title fight in Quebec City on Saturday.

The Liverpool boxer taunted his opponent in the pre-fight press conference, suggesting that he was knocked out by a journeyman fighter, referring to Stevenson's defeat to Darnell Boone.

Bellew said: "It has been 12 weeks of long, hard work and I have been thinking about him morning, noon and night.

"All I want to do is nail him. Whatever it takes and whatever I've got to do I will and on Saturday night I am going to be world champion."

Saturday's bout will be Bellew's second world title shot, having lost to Nathan Cleverly in 2011.
