E156: Tony Bellew: Nothing Made Me Happy Until I Found This
The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett
Tony Bellew is a professional boxer and a former British, Commonwealth and World Champion. As well as this, he is also an actor, and the star of Creed with Sylvester Stallone, and the author of last year's bestselling book, Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched in the Face. In this raw, honest and emotional interview, Tony breaks down exactly why people dedicate their life to fighting, and how it’s often because they have no other choice. But also because it comes to fill a need inside of them, and Tony opens up on what this inner need can do to you if you leave it unchecked. Many times, Tony has had to bring his life back from the brink - of poverty, bullying, defeats, and his own emotional instincts. His story is a fascinating example of how it’s often things we’re good at that cause us the most trouble, but when we face that honestly we can come through stronger the other side.

Tony Bellew is a name known to many who follow the world of boxing. He grew up in Wavertree in Liverpool, and by the age of just eighteen, was strapping on a bulletproof vest and working as a bouncer. His childhood had almost as many knocks as he took in the ring, with the end of his parents relationship and finding himself expelled from school at the age of fifteen. As he had heard said to him many times, he felt a waste of space and his life was at a crossroads. One direction could lead to a life of street fights and crime, the other was boxing. He chose the latter, and went on to become a world champion, but also held the British Commonwealth and European titles, and his glittering career culminated in two defining victories against David Heye. Tony Bellew's story of a chubby kid growing up in Liverpool to a world champion, is an example of willpower, incredible resilience and total dedication. After over 20 years in the ring, what you're about to hear is the tale of a man who has overcome the doubters and reached the pinnacle of his sport.Yet he is still vulnerable and honest enough to admit, he continues to face an almost daily battle with his demons. He's also just written a brilliant new book called Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Face, where he draws on the lessons he's learned from life in the ring to help others deal with the punches that life can throw all of us.
