Tony Bellew and Isaac Chilemba have agreed to fight again on the Carl Froch-Mikkel Kessler 2 undercard at the 02 Arena in London on May 25.

Bellew (19-1-1) fought Chilemba (20-1-1) to a frustrating draw in their first encounter at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on March 30, leaving both men to dispute who should of walked away with the victory.

The winner was set to get a shot at the WBC light heavyweight title against the winner of Chad Dawson-Adonis Stevenson, a scenario that remains for the victor of their May 25 rematch. "The winner of the fight was to become mandatory for Dawson's WBC belt but it was a draw so there was no mandatory challenger, we need to find one." Said promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport.

Commonwealth super middleweight champion George Groves (18-0)  will also feature on the May 25 card against an opponent to be named.
