Beat the shit out of me though
Would the be Brian Schumacher, former Liverpool bouncer, now in prison for life? Killed a guy.

Tony's personality and fighting style could lead to him becoming absolutely massive in Liverpool. Bigger than he is already. Exciting boxing times in that city!

Never heard that he was a total freak of a man only a middleweight but he was about 6"3 and had the longest arms I've ever seen it was like trying to fight an octopus.

It was a very controlled performance - a really good showcase for Tony's talents and he made it look easy.

I agree a lot of credit has to go to Tony. I have to admit I thought he would be destroyed by Clev. He fought really well my only problem is honesty in Tonys interview last night he said he feels that he is still a undefeated fighter. He has also said he feels he won the Clev fight. In all honesty mate you have been defeated and although close you definately lost against Clev, I think admitting that would help you move on from Clev. I feel both fighters should now operated fighting the best in the World at light heavy then they will eventually meet again no point spoiling it by giving such a quick rematch. I disagree with defending the British there is no one there and European is below his level so hopefully Tony will fight at his level and World Class fighters.

Agreed, I thought Bellew scraped it to be honest. Was gutted for him when he didn't get the nod.
