Everton Football Club – Goodison Park
It’s not often that fiction becomes a reality but it happened at Goodison Park on 29 May 2016. Lifelong Evertonian and boxer Tony Bellew played a supporting role in Creed, the latest instalment in the Rocky series, where his character fights for a world title at Goodison Park.
Less than six months after the worldwide release of the film Tony Bellew was challenging for a WBC title with the determination that his dream of being world champion could be intertwined with his dream of fighting at Goodison Park.
Everton officials worked in partnership with Matchroom Sports to stage the first outdoor stadium world title fight held in Liverpool for 52 years.
Working closely with Matchroom Sports, Everton officials had to obtain a licence, convert a football stadium into a boxing arena, develop a marketing and promotional plan to help sell tickets as well as deliver a safe, enjoyable event that would be televised on Sky Sports across Europe.
The challenge was met by all parties involved and ended with Evertonian Tony Bellew becoming the new WBC Cruiserweight champion in front of an adoring Goodison Park crowd.
