Default Bellew: "I'm a free agent"

Quote:
Im a free agent, whether Frank wants to accept that or not hes got no choice in it, said Bellew, 17-1 (11), when speaking to ***********.com over the phone.

It is a massive decision, but Ive been left to rot on the shelf. I had no choice but to do this because Ive got a family to feed.

I have to look after number one and prioritize a bit now in my career. If it comes to a fight then Ill fight because I believe I wasnt being looked after and my people can prove that, so I expect a fair hearing and to be treated fairly. I am confident. I know that my case will be heard very fairly and thoroughly. All we need to do is come with the facts that is it.


I cant get into a lot of things right now, but things will come out in the end. There are things that go on in boxing that are great for the promoter, not so great for the boxer, and thats got to change.


I was there on Saturday, as everyone could see, because I was there to support Carl Froch, said Bellew. It was great to see Carl win, but you also saw how passionate this guy Eddie Hearn is about his fighters. It is heart warming to see a guy who cares about his fighters, it really is.

I speak to Carl on many occasions. Carl doesnt look at Eddie as a business partner, he looks at him as someone he can pick the phone up and speak to I want that type of relationship with someone.


Bellew reiterated his position before signing off: Im a free agent. I can speak to anyone I want to it is that simple.

Scene it

Quick question, are we not allowed to link to boxing scene? Hence the scene it when quoting their articles?

You're not allowed to link to any other boxing site.

Good for Bellew, but I see a legal action coming after him.

Funny how all FWP fighters want to leave him.

I hope this doesn't get into some complicated legal issue. I just want to see Bellew fighting regularly on Sky again. He deserves that sort of exposure and I genuinely think he'll become a major star in British boxing if he gets it.

Nope from what I hear both David Price and Tony Bellew are going to sign with Matchroom.

Dave Coldwell will manage Bellew and Maloney will manage Price.

Before anyone says source I will post my reply.

Go **** Yourself!!!
