What if reigning WBC cruiserweight boss Tony Bellew does what he insists he will and defeats David Haye next March? It might seem like a big if in the opinion of many fans, but “Bomber” (a far more palatable nickname to the new one Haye has given to his rival!) can certainly punch very hard – at least he can as a 200-pounder. There is definitely a chance, call it an outside chance if you … Read Article
While the British boxing scene is buzzing over today’s official announcement that David Haye and Tony Bellew will meet in what appears to be a very genuine grudge-match next March, not everyone is happy or thrilled at this news.

As soon as he heard the news regarding the March 4 fight, Briggs wasted no time taking to social media to let his … Read Article

Bellew isn’t the man at cruiserweight despite what he thinks..
Bellew seems to think Marco Huck is “Captain Birdseye” as opposed to his moniker of “Käpt’n”. Little ironic from Bellew who has the moniker of “Bomber”, and is always talking about his power.
A stoppage record of 58% doesn’t show me or anyone else, a record for somebody with power or a title “Bomber”, to think otherwise is pure fantasy.… Read Article
by Steve Goodwin: Welcome to the second edition of my new weekly boxing column in which I will give my genuine views on the week’s events. Got back from Turkey on Friday and was at York Hall Saturday.
Saturday night saw Tony Bellew retain his WBC Cruiserweight title with an exciting punch up with BJ Flores. That was exciting but I must confess to being less than excited about the pantomime afterwards between Tony Bellew … Read Article
Both Tony Bellew and David Haye have options, quite a few in fact. WBC cruiserweight champion Bellew has a number of potentially big and financially rewarding fights at 200-pounds, where the proud Liverpool man could try and unify the division, while Haye, who has a fight upcoming in December (opponent still to be determined) has possible big money fights with the likes of Anthony Joshua (really big money!) and maybe Shannon Briggs on the horizon.… Read Article
