Homecoming for Bellew

British champion to make his comeback in Liverpool

Tony Bellew will defend his British light-heavyweight title against Norwich's Danny McIntosh in Liverpool on April 14.
Bellew suffered the first defeat of his career when he challenged for Nathan Cleverly's WBO strap in October, losing on two of the scorecards.
But he will be looking to impress on his return to the ring against 31-year-old McIntosh, who also lost to then-British and Commonwealth champ Cleverly in 2009.
"I feel I'm at world level now," he said. "Nathan Cleverly is a world-class fighter and in a lot of people's eyes I beat Cleverly, and I showed a lot of good tools that people maybe didn't expect.
"Danny's a good European-level fighter but I feel I'm a world-class fighter."
Promoter Dave Coldwell added: "It's a pleasure to put on a big show like this for Liverpool, Tony Bellew is now one of the game's biggest names.
"He has been pushed to the forefront of British boxing after his fight with Nathan Cleverly and is defending his British title against a very dangerous opponent."
McIntosh has solid credentials after picking up the European title 12 months ago only to lose it in his first defence. - http://www1.skysports.com/
