Bellew vs Flores: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Tony Bellew and Luke Campbell look to get past veteran challenges today on Sky Sports.

Matchroom Boxing
Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tony Bellew makes his first WBC cruiserweight title defense today in Liverpool, as he’ll face American BJ Flores in the main event from Echo Arena, a card also featuring the return of Luke Campbell.

Bellew (27-2-1, 17 KO) put in a thunderous performance in his vacant title win over Junior Makabu in May, stopping his opponent in the third round. He’ll again look to use that power against Flores (32-2-1, 20 KO), who has lost his last two notable fights, and those date back to 2010 when he was defeated by Danny Green.

Campbell (14-1, 11 KO) will be facing veteran Derry Mathews (38-10-2, 20 KO), who is coming off of a loss to WBO lightweight titleholder Terry Flanagan on March 12. The 33-year-old Mathews is a former British, Commonwealth, and interim WBA titleholder, and is a reasonable next step for Campbell, 29, who has beaten Gary Sykes and Argenis Mendez following a loss to Yvan Mendy last December.

Live coverage on UK TV will begin at 1 pm ET on Sky Sports 3, and continue at 3 pm ET on Sky Sports 2.
