Bombs Away - Bellew Wins in 5
Tony Bellew vs Danny McIntosh - British Light Heavyweight Title

Mature , controlled and patient were only some of the words used to describe Tony Bellews masterful performance in Liverpool last night when he blasted former European Kingpin Danny McIntosh to defeat in only 5 rounds. A big right hand ended things early in the 5th in a fight that Bellew dominated from the opening bell.

Bellew now will no doubt push for that rematch with WBO champ Cleverly after such a great performance , the scousers jab was better than ever. It doubled and even tripled as 9 times out of 10 it was followed by wicked right hands to the head. McIntosh was a lively underdog before but Bellew simply never allowed him into the fight.

Every scorecard i managed to collect had the exact same score 40-35 Bellew at the time of stoppage. 4-0 in rounds but with the extra point for a late knockdown scored by Bellew in the 4th.

What impressed many was that Bellew didn't rush anything , he simply took his time , never got excited and waited till the right moment to finally finish of his over-matched opponent.

Bellew can now look forward to much bigger thing although i feel that Carl Froch may be correct in saying that Bellew might want to defend the British Title 1 more time as he would get the belt for keeps.

Below as always is my scorecard along with all the press and fans scores.


Round 1.... 10-9 Bellew
Round 2.... 10-9 Bellew
Round 3.... 10-9 Bellew
Round 4.... 10-8 Bellew

TOTAL: 40-35 Bellew
