TONY BELLEW lying on the canvas after he was stopped by Adonis Stevenson in 2013 is an image that has been seen and shared many times. But, it’s safe to say that no one could have predicted what would happen next for “The Bomber”.

The Liverpudlian’s world title dreams were on hold, but he would soon embark on an incredible run which saw him reach the summit and then continue to defy the critics with high profile wins which saw him become a household name in the UK.

Alongside him every step of the way on that journey was Dave Coldwell, who looks back fondly on memories that will last a lifetime. The Rotherham based trainer recalls how the pair battled against the odds and gave his thoughts exclusively to Boxing News.
