28th OCTOBER 2011 WBO LIGHTHEAVYWEIGHT BARNSTORMER

WBO World Lightheavyweight Championship Nathan Cleverley's narrow points win over Commonwealth Champion Tony Bellew at Liverpool's Echo Arena on October 15th more than lived up to expectation. As with Steve Molitor's close win in defence of his IBF World Championship Superbantamweight Championship in September last year against then Commonwealth Champion Jason Booth, this contest between former and current Commonwealth Champions demonstrated the quality of our Champion. With Joseph Agbeko's mandated rematch for the IBF World Bantamweight Championship scheduled for December and the possible British 'contest of the year' between Liam Walsh and Paul Appleby on September 30th for our Superfeatherweight Championship, the CBC can be rightly proud of the quality of its' Champions and the majority of its' Championship contests.
