TONY BELLEW has labelled Chris Eubank Jnr a “clown” after the former British middleweight champion called him out and also revealed talks are underway for him to contest a heavyweight world title.

Bellew stunned the world of boxing by stopping David Haye earlier this month and has since been challenged by numerous fighters, the most surprising of which was Eubank Jnr, who operates numerous weight classes below Tony.

The Liverpudlian shot Eubank Jnr down in a series of tweets and insists he knows exactly why the Brightonian floated the unlikely idea of a catchweight fight between them.
