Tony Bellew: Weight struggles forced cruiserweight move

Tony Bellew tells BBC Radio Merseyside that it has always been difficult for him to make the weight for light-heavyweight contests and believes stepping up to the cruiserweight division will help him achieve his goal of becoming a world champion.

The 31-year-old from Liverpool, who lost his world title fight with Canada's Adonis Stevenson on Saturday, reveals he gained 17lbs in weight in the four days after the bout in Quebec City.
