Commonwealth champion Tony Bellew will be ringside at Prizefighter Light-Heavyweights II on January 29 at Olympia in London, and said he was open to a fight with the winner.

We caught up with man of the moment Carl Froch to talk about his destruction of Arthur Abraham and having to listen to his missus screaming all the way through the fight.
Carl, good job. Was that the best performance of your career?
