British light-heavyweight Tony Bellew insists that he is happy to fight WBC champion Adonis Stevenson "in his own backyard".

British light-heavyweight Tony Bellew does not think it will make any difference where his WBC world title bout with Adonis Stevenson is held.

Bellew is the mandatory challenger for the Canadian's belt, and with discussions ongoing regarding the venue of the fight, the Liverpudlian has insisted that he is happy to travel to North America to face the 35-year-old.

The 30-year-old told the Liverpool Echo: "I'm really happy to go into his backyard if that is what happens. I am happy to go to Montreal if they want or the United States if that's where it is. It makes no odds to me where they put that ring.

"I am not going to stand there and get nailed. I am going to hit him and hurt him. He's a bully but he can't intimidate me. He wanted the big box office fights and in many ways I couldn't blame him."

Bellew moved in line for a world title shot with a points victory over Isaac Chilemba in May.
