QUEBEC -- World Boxing Council light heavyweight champ Adonis (Superman) Stevenson and contender Tony (The Bomber) Bellew nearly got an early start on their weekend bout as the two battlers scuffled Friday at the weigh-in. Stevenson took exception to Bellew calling him "a pimp." On Thursday, the six-foot-three British boxer had called the five-foot-10 Stevenson "a dwarf." The tension came to a head after the weigh-in -- both clocked in at 175 pounds -- when they did the traditional face-to-face. Bellew apparently gave Stevenson a tap on the head as some of his fans chanted "pimp, pimp, pimp." It was an apparent reference to the 18 months the Haitian-born slugger from Montreal once spent in a Quebec jail on charges of managing prostitutes, assault and uttering threats. The two boxers scuffled and had to be pulled apart. "He put his head on my head, he shoved his head in my nose, so I smashed my head right back in his nose and I told him what I think of him," Bellew said afterward. "Thats all that happened." Stevenson had another version of events. He said Bellew acted out of fear and disarray. "The guy is desperate," Stevenson said. "When I got to the face-to-face, he gave me a hit and I wanted to give him one back. I wanted to rip his head off but my team held me back. I know hes scared, he tries to hide his fear. I saw fear in his eyes." Bellew (20-1-1, 12 knockouts) is competing in his first professional bout outside the United Kingdom. He is a former Commonwealth champion who lost a previous world title attempt by majority decision to WBO champ Nathan Cleverly in Liverpool in 2011. He has won five fights in a row since then. He doesnt mince his words when it comes to his opponent, the only Canadian with a world title from one of the major sanctioning bodies and one of the rising stars of boxing with his devastating punching power. "I think hes a little scrote," Bellew said. "Hes a maggot. I dont like what hes about....The minute I called him a pimp, he exploded. "If you call me a Scouser, Im a Scouser, Im from Liverpool. Thats what a Scouser is. If I call him a pimp, hes a pimp. Thats what hes done. Theres no ifs or buts. Thats what hes done. Thats a fact. Thats not me saying hes this, hes not a nice guy. Thats speculation. I called him what he is. Thats what he was." Stevenson (22-1, 19 knockouts) won the WBC belt and The Ring magazine title as linear champion with a thundering left hook only 76 seconds into his bout with American Chad Dawson in June. The southpaw followed that on Sept. 28 by pounding former IBF champ Tavoris Cloud so badly that the challenger quit after seven rounds. Bellew was in the Bell Centre audience for that one. Bellew became mandatory challenger with a 12-round decision over Isaac Chilemba in May. While Stevenson may call himself Superman, Bellew doesnt see him as a Man of Steel. "I have a better boxing brain than him," he said. "This guys got 20 guys around him telling him hes great, hes Superman. He aint Superman. Hes a human being with two arms and two legs. Add to that hes a midget compared to me. He cant beat me." The bout will be held Saturday at the Colisee Pepsi. The co-feature will be another light heavyweight title clash between hard-hitting Russian Sergey Kovalev (22-0-1), the World Boxing Organization champion, and Ismayl Sillakh (21-1) of Ukraine. The bouts are to be aired on the U.S. specialty channel HBO. Cheap Shoes Black Friday . He left in the 4th inning of Saturdays game against the Tigers after experiencing tightness.

Bynum participated in the teams shootaround at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday morning as the Pacers prepared for their game against Portland on Friday night. A snowstorm kept the 7-foot centre from landing in Indianapolis sooner, and Pacers coach Frank Vogel expects to take "a few weeks" to get Bynum ready to play in a game. "Well come back from the All-Star break and see how practices go over the next week or two after that before we decide if hes ready," Vogel said. "We want to make sure hes comfortable." Bynum pplayed in 24 games this season with the Cleveland Cavaliers before being suspended indefinitely by the team in December.dddddddddddd "Its a winning atmosphere," Bynum said. "Obviously, when they have the staff that they have here and the legend Larry Bird, things run correctly. Its a lot easier to fit in here and be positive when the atmosphere is already that way." He hasnt done much since leaving the Cavs. "Just relaxing at home and thats it," he said. When asked if he kept a workout routine during his time off, Bynum said, "not really." That will make it harder to get back into game shape. ' ' '
