DIARY: Bellew loses pub middleweight challenge before the end of one round

Ex-Financial Dynamics director Sean Bellew is one man who knows more than he cares to reveal about our increasingly violent society. Bellew - now working with Hill Murray Rogerson - has been beaten up not just once but twice.

Ex-Financial Dynamics director Sean Bellew is one man who knows more

than he cares to reveal about our increasingly violent society. Bellew -

now working with Hill Murray Rogerson - has been beaten up not just once

but twice.



It all started over a quiet drink in Bellew’s local in Pimlico - not

usually known as a no-go area of London. Perhaps he should have read the

signs. ‘There were no regulars in there, just lots of yobbos,’ he tells

me.



‘They were threatening to throw some Irish bloke called Crazy Horse out

of the window. Then they came and stood behind me. I turned round and

said why don’t you stop making offensive comments about the Irish’.



Alas Bellew’s brave stand merely provoked the thugs further. Suffice to

say a fight ensued and the police were called. But that was not an end

to it. As Bellew explains: ‘They came back two nights later to finish

the job.’



The damage has since been compounded by Bellew himself. Having tripped

up once and damaged his hand he then fell a second time.



‘I had a briefcase in one hand, so I had to stop my fall by using my

right eye,’ says Bellew, ‘I was stone cold sober at the time. If I’d

been drunk I probably wouldn’t have hurt myself.’
