Bellew (26-2-1-16KO) has been a life long fan of Everton Football Club and it is understood that a dream of his to box for a world title there will now become a reality.

According to reports from Boxing Scene, a date has been locked in for this summer where a Goodison Park license has been granted (home of Everton FC) to stage Bellew’s upcoming world title fight.
