Former world champion boxer Tony Bellew goes toe-to-toe with a guest to find out what really winds them up and how they deal with it. Up next is none other than footballing legend and Derby County manager Wayne ‘Wazza’ Rooney. Tony used to watch Wazza play for his beloved Everton and has been a fan and a mate for years. Guess what?
