On Saturday night, Tony Bellew survived a nasty cut to jump a step closer to a world title shot with a unanimous decision win over Argentina's Roberto Bolonti in Nottingham.

The fiery Liverpudlian was seeking to build on his recent win over Edison Miranda as he looks to earn a second bid for world honours.

Bellew had shown his world title credentials in a premature and unsuccessful shot at Nathan Cleverly's WBO light-heavyweight title last year and has been rebuilding towards another crack since then.

He continued that progress at the Capital FM Arena with a solid win over Bolonti despite suffering a nasty third-round cut above the right eye which had initially looked potentially catastrophic to his hopes.

Evertonian Bellew, 29, had a record of 18-1 (12KO wins) heading into the bout while 33-year-old Bolonti (30-1, 19KO wins) was boxing outside Argentina for the first time.
