Tony Bellow is wary of "dangerous" Edison Miranda ahead of Saturday's fight at Alexandra Palace.

Tony Bellew has revealed that he hopes the experience he picked up in his world title fight with Nathan Cleverly will help him overcome Colombian Edison Miranda.

The 29-year-old impressed in a points loss to the undefeated Cleverly in October, but he hopes that he can use that experience to overcome an opponent he regards as "dangerous".

Bellew said: "I have fought for the world title, possibly not against as dangerous a boxer as Miranda, but someone more accomplished.

"He brings danger and excitement to the table and I do too, so it sounds a good mix."

Miranda has recorded 30 knockout wins in 42 fights, although he has lost seven times.
