There's some Friday boxing on offer with Tony Bellew vs Danny McIntosh


At twenty nine and with just sixteen fights to his name, Tony Bellew was making slow progress compared to some other boxers. Take Saul Alvarez and Chavez Jr for instance; they’re 21 and 26, and they have forty and forty-six fights to their name respectively. Bellew looks inactive by comparison. What he lacks in professional experience though, he made up for last October when he took WBO world champion Nathan Cleverly the full twelve rounds in one of the UK fights of the year, which he lost on a majority decision that did him a lot of credit.

Bellew’s first fight since then is with Danny McIntosh, and it is tonight at the Echo Arena in Bellew’s home town of Liverpool. He is fighting Danny McIntosh, a capable light heavyweight who was last seen losing an EBU title fight with Eduard Gutknecht. McIntosh has a 13-2-0 record, with seven coming by knockout. His best win came in January last year when he won the vacant EBU title against Thierry Karl (28-4-0).

Tony Bellew is both the bookies and the fans’ favourite for his fight tonight. The Liverpudlian will box in front of some adoring hometown fans, fans he has cultivated with his cocky personality and sometimes exaggerated fighting talk. In the build up to this fight he has talked a lot about making Liverpool the boxing capital of Britain, and with other Merseyside-based fighters such as David Price and Martin Murray doing the area a lot of credit, Bellew might have a point.

Tonight, I’d expect Bellew to take a points win, or maybe even a stoppage in the late rounds. Danny McIntosh is by no means a walk-over, but sounds coming from the Bellew camp are that his last fight with Nathan Cleverly matured him, and he has looked better than ever in his sparring. Plus, he has already tasted a world title fight, and he’ll be hungry for more.
