Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew is riding high at the moment after two back to back stoppage wins against David Haye.Fights where nobody thought he’d even win in the first place. But it’s another fight that holds the fondness in his heart more than the Haye fights.
Its been two years already since Tony Bellew finally realised his ambition of becoming the champion of the world.
Two years since he put all the ups and downs of his life and career behind him in a sensational display over Makubu to capture the WBC world cruiserweight title in front of his home fans at Goodison Park stadium at Everton’s soccer ground in Liverpool.
He’s been strolling down memory lane as he sits at home currently basking in his well deserved achievements:
Wow it’s been 2 years already, Let me tell you that this is without doubt the defining moment of my whole career! I dreamed of doing this from the min I put boxing gloves on 20+ years ago! That WBC Belt and this win meant EVERYTHING. #GoodisonPark #WBC pic.twitter.com/bu8YBAtoHt

What a fight and performance to be fair.
Bellew now finds himself weighing up his options with talks of a potential Tyson Fury showdown later in the year for the Liverpool native.
