Tony Bellew walked out of a recording of Sky Sports’ Gloves Are Off after Nathan Cleverly called him “too fat and slow”.

The pair met on the programme to promote their rematch on November 22 in Liverpool but Bellew took umbrage with what his Welsh opponent had to say about him.

The Liverpudlian, who is looking to avenge a 2011 loss to Cleverly, then asked host Jonny Nelson whether the interview had finished before leaving the set.

Who knew fighters were so sensitive about their image?
