Tony Bellew will take on WBC light-heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson on November 30 in Quebec City.

The 30-year-old from Liverpool has only been beaten once in his career, where he lost out on a points' decision to Nathan Cleverly in October 2011.

Bellew since then has recorded four wins and a draw, picking up a victory in the rematch with Isaac Chilemba in May.

Stevenson has also been defeated once, and the 36-year-old defended his WBC crown after overcoming Tavoris Cloud last month - when his opponent retired in the seventh round. Stevenson collected the WBC belt in June.

Bellew took to Twitter to reveal the news of having a shot at a world title for a second time.
