McKenzie: I Want Tony Bellew, I Know I Can Beat Him!

By Shaun Brown

The eyes of the British boxing scene will be on Tony Bellew and Danny McIntosh when they face off against each other for the light heavyweight Lonsdale belt on Friday April 27. However one man will have a keener interest than most. Reigning Commonwealth champion, Derby’s Ovill McKenzie will be in attendance at Liverpool’s Echo Arena in the hope that he will be next in line to face the winner.

McKenzie and Bellew are not strangers to each other having already fought twice between 2010 and 2011. The popular Scouser came out on top both times despite surviving two knockdowns in their inaugural bout and cruising to a points victory in their much anticipated rematch.

“I was thinking about trying to get a fight with (Nathan) Cleverly but I know he’ll just tell me to go and beat Bellew first,” said McKenzie when speaking to Boxingscene.com.  “I know I can beat Bellew. I got it all wrong in the second fight, I refuse to watch that fight, I hate it. But I’ve got a score to settle with him.”

With the 32-year- old fresh off a victory against another Liverpudlian in the form of Tony Dodson back in February, “The Upsetter” is hoping to be back out soon and whilst he hopes it will be the winner of the ‘The Big Bang’ all he wants is another fight!

“I’m waiting on a date; I’m waiting on a name. That could be anyone from Enzo Macarannelli to Bob Ajisafe to Tony Jeffries to Tony Bellew.”

And should it be Bellew he had this warning for the “Bomber.”

“He knows if I catch him next time we fight it’ll be all over for him. He told me face to face last time that he was worried about me hitting him. I know he doesn’t want to get caught against me.”

Id have no interested in seeing another fight between Bellew - McKenzie, thats done and dusted now. Looking forward to the McIntosh fight though, i expect Bellew to win and it will be interesting to see what he does next…

He said this all before the rematch in which he did absolutely nothing in. I'd really have no interest in seeing a 3rd fight given such a poor performance from him in the 2nd. There second fight genuinely was one…
