ISAAC CHILEMBA was born and raised in poverty but aims to ride the road to riches by causing another Scouse boxing upset.

The big puncher challenges Evertonian Tony Bellew for his WBC silver light-heavyweight title at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday.

Merseyside boxing is still in shock following heavyweight idol David Price’s two-round loss to Tony Thompson just last month.

But Bellew, 30, who is now ranked No.1 for Chad Dawson’s WBC world crown, is in for his toughest night since WBO king Nathan Cleverly beat him almost 18 months ago.

Chilemba, 25, is one of 10 children raised by his single parent mother in Malawi.

And he said: “Bellew is a worthwhile opponent and I’m confident going into this fight.

“I know that fighting on foreign soil is never easy.

“But I only see this fight ending in one way – and that is with my hand being raised as the clear-cut winner.”

His mother died when Chilemba, who sits at No.4 in the WBC rankings, was 16 and he was left to care for his siblings.

“In addition to Isaac being a terrific fighter, he has an absolutely remarkable story of his upbringing,” said his promoter Lou DiBella.

“His fight against Bellew is the biggest opportunity of his career and we expect him to show his class.”

Chilemba all the way. Good boxer, Tony Bellew looks too basic and plain to me.
