not sure Bellew did, of course McCracken knew who he was
I meant the manner of it bewildered him, an amateur out of competition gave a drubbing to a pro who was deep in training and wasn't exactly holding back himself. I think McCracken was expecting a leisurly spar for the both of them, giving the kid a taste of what to expect against Britains best pro in his division.
And for what its worth i'm a big Bellew fan, great bloke and really good fighter
