Liverpool’s Tony Bellew has dismissed any notion that he is going to get blown away by the big punching Adonis Stevenson when he challenges for the Canadian’s WBC light heavyweight title in Quebec City on Saturday night
Bellew came face to face with the champion at a press conference on Wednesday and is considered a huge underdog by local media but Bellew is super confident and not fazed by the task ahead.
Speaking at the press conference Bellew said “He’s got to understand that I’m not coming here to lose.
“People have no idea what is at stake and how far I’m willing to go. He can’t beat me. I was getting to him towards the end of the press conference and he realises that I’m not moving.
I’m 6’3” and he is so small he looks like he’s fallen off my key ring. He is not getting to me. I’m cool, calm and I can’t wait for Saturday.”
Bellew super confident added: “There is no pressure on me. These idiots think Stevenson is going to blow me away.
“He’s said ‘Tony is getting knocked out in four rounds’. He just better hope he is in shape because I am still going to be there after four rounds.
“He is a small man who came up trumps and won the lottery when he landed that shot on Chad Dawson.
