Bomber Bellew reveals why the camp for the Makabu fight was “The worst camp” he had ever had

Tony Bellew may have won by stoppage at the weekend to become the new WBC Cruiserweight champion of the world, but he has admitted that the preparation for the fight wasn’t ideal at all.
Whilst in camp The Bomber had trouble with his hands as well as a detached rib which hampered his preparation for the biggest night of his life. 

The champ said “It was the worst camp I ever had. Boxers say how they had a brilliant camp and whatever. But this was awful. I was in a hyperbaric chamber on oxygen four weeks ago. I had detached a rib. I was fucked. I was travelling back and forth to Sheffield after two hours of treatment every morning and then sparring.”

Even though the camp wasn’t the best for the new champion, he still got the job done which is a testament to his natural boxing ability and raw power that enabled him to land the concussive punch on Makabu in the 3rd round.
