Tony Bellew

Creed, which came out this past Thanksgiving and was a hit, included some great boxing scenes. Some of them had real punches, too, such as this one where Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed took a big shot from adversary “Rickie Conlin.”

Well, it turns out the boxer who fought Jordan as “Conlin” in Creed is a real boxer — and a successful one. His name is Tony Bellew, and he won the WBC Cruiserweight Championship on Saturday. And beyond just his dominant performance, Bellew unleashed a fantastic rant following his win.

Bellew dominated his match, knocking down his opponent three different times en route to his third-round win. Here’s some footage of the great performance.
