Tony Bellew likes to talk about Everton Football Club. He started supporting them when he was a kid as an act of rebellion toward his father who was a Liverpool fan – city rivals to Everton. Bellew, nicknamed ‘Bomber’, loves Everton and loves football. He would rather be playing for The Toffees than in a boxing ring with an opponent looking to knock him out. “I say to people do you think I enjoy getting punched in the face? At the end of the day you’ve got ten men backing you up when you walk on a pitch."
