Tony Bellew Shows His True Everton Colours Here

Tony Bellew Shows His True Everton Colours Here

Published On May 28, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News, Boxing Views and Opinion

Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew bids to become the WBC world cruiserweight champion at his boyhood football club’s stadium this weekend.

It’s been a long road for Tony Bellew during a professional boxing career that has seen him just fall short at world level to date, but tomorrow night in his hometown in front of his home fans, he’ll look to make it third time lucky in world title fights.

Bellew takes on big hitting Illunga Makabu who has a reputation for heavy hands – with the bookmakers reflecting this by placing Bellew as a slight underdog across betting lines.

Makabu’s unknown quantity makes him an even more dangerous challenge, but if Bellew is to win the world title at long last, perhaps such an occasion and venue at Goodison Park is the place for him to do it.

Tony recently spoke to our own Stewart Lawrence about happy memories at the stadium and seems to be extremely motivated to do the business this weekend.

Matchroom Sport have put together an interesting short documentary with Bellew and Sky Sports presenter Johnny Nelson to illustrate Bellew’s Everton connection ahead of the biggest night of his boxing career:
