ONE of British boxing’s most famous faces was the special guest at JD Welsh Premier League side Caernarfon Town last week.

The Canaries held an evening with former world champion Tony Bellew on Friday, February 22, which saw the club’s supporters and North Wales fight fans turn out in their number for what turned out to be a memorable occasion.

The Sky Sports pundit and aspiring personal trainer spent the evening taking pictures with those in attendance, signing autographs and telling some of his most memorable stories from more than a decade in the brutal profession.

Manager Sean Eardley and assistant Richard Davies were both in attendance, in addition to a large number of senior squad members, with a special auction was also held which featured a wide range of sporting memorabilia.

Cofis’ commercial manager Phil Jones stated in was an “honour and a privilege” to have Bellew at The Oval, and thanked those that came along to support the event.

Bellew bowed out of the professional game with a spirited loss at the hands of Cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, November 10, with the lifelong Everton fan famously defeating former Heavyweight world champion David Haye via stoppage on two occasions.

He tasted defeat just twiceprior to this in a glittering 11-year career against Nathan Cleverly and Adonis Stephenson.
