Tony “Bomber” Bellew faces his toughest match yet against Edison Miranda at Alexandra Palace on Saturday. The 29-year-old will earn the International Light Heavyweight Title if he beats his Colombian opponent.
Betfair, title sponsors of the London Calling show, caught up with Bellew at the Rotunda ABC gym in Liverpool. Speaking ahead of his clash with Miranda, the Liverpool fighter said:
“This guy is exciting. He’s got great credentials and boasts a fantastic knockout rate with 35 wins. I’m just looking forward to getting into the ring and letting my boxing do the talking.”
The ‘Bomber’, so called for his aggressive punching power, is also a huge Everton fan and is a regular fixture at the club’s Fincham Farm training ground:
“I’m there twice a week. I feel very lucky and blessed to have the staff that are available to me. I’ve got to thank Everton Football Club for doing what they do for me, because without them I’d definitely be missing something in my game.”
“The future’s bright, the future’s Everton and the future is in my two fists.”
