Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew is readying himself for his third tilt at a world title on May 29th when he takes on Ilunga Makabu at Goodison Park.

The fight will be for the vacant WBC cruiserweight title and with Bellew being a life long Everton Football Club fan, will take place at his dream venue at the club’s stadium in his native Liverpool.

This has been reflected with a lot of bookmakers making Bellew a 2/1 underdog a few weeks out from the fight as things stand.

Tony is in confident mood however, and touched on a number of subjects at this week’s press conference with Boxing News and Views’ Stewart Lawrence:
