Bellew vs Usyk Preview and Prediction

Usyk is unbeaten and undisputed cruiserweight world champion

Usyk is unbeaten and undisputed cruiserweight world champion

I'll get him. He will feel something that he's never felt.

Usyk has looked off colour in some of his previous wins, but given the stage this fight has been given and the big fights around the corner under the Matchroom Boxing banner, Usyk is not going to take this one lightly at all.

"First of all I have genuine punch power".

I would shoot to his body as I've seen him hurt a few years ago with this strategy.

"Remember, I'm coming from the light-heavyweight division".

I don't think there will be an issue with Bellew coming down to the cruiserweight category after going up around a stone in weight against myself past year, he didn't bulk up and do a lot of bodybuilding.

"Oleksandr Usyk throws with much more variety but people can only punch you if you are standing still with your hands up around your head like Murat Gassiev did [in July, when Usyk won a unanimous decision to unify the world cruiserweight titles]".

It led to what The Sun says was "a very heated exchange" - prompting the Queen to speak with Harry, 34. "Meghan can be hard . According to reports in The Sun , the Queen and Meghan had a row over her choice of headgear at the wedding.


But a bold prediction would be for Usyk to make a statement, landing at will from the early goings, dropping Bellew on several occasions before the contest is halted inside 4 rounds.

"He is definitely one of the best boxers in the world, he's outstanding at what he does", Bellew told ESPN.

"He's nice on the eye and if you let him get into a rhythm then you're in for a very hard fight".

Anthony Joshua has already been mentioned by Usyk himself as a future opponent as he looks to step up to the big boys and a recent promotional deal with Matchroom and Eddie Hearn ensure those claims are certainly realistic from a TV point of view at least. He has a lot more faults than Lomachenko.

"His willingness to exchange, his willingness to fight fire with fire".

Although Tony has fought at Heavyweight in his last two fights, I was naturally a cruiserweight, I only moved up to Heavyweight once I had unified the division. The inaugural victor of the World Boxing Super Series arrives in Manchester on Saturday as the holder of every belt at 200lbs, and although Coldwell is full of respect for the 2012 Olympic gold medallist, hours studying the man have alerted him to issues that he believes his fighter must exploit.
