Tony's boxing life began at Liverpool's Rotunda ABC, as a way for his life not to go down a life of crime, like others around him had done at the time.
In 2010, Tony won the Commonwealth light-heavyweight title, defeating Atoli Moore at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. From then on his career went from strength to strength, winning the WBO International cruiserweight title against Valery Brudov on 15 March 2014.
Tony achieved his life long dream on 29 May 2016, when he defeated IIunga Makabu to win the WBC cruiserweight title. He won the fight at his beloved Everton Football Club's ground Goodison Park. He then later went on to star in the Rocky spin-off / sequel Creed alongside Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stalone.
