Usyk tells Bellew: A little less conversation, a little more action

  • Retired American Andre Ward had been linked in the past to a fight against Bellew

However, Ukrainian Usyk, who now boasts a 15-0 professional record, has admitted he would consider stepping up a division to challenge Joshua, if he can brush aside Bellew.

I found whenever I fought a southpaw I needed to do lots of sparring.

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. It won't happen again, though.

I was about 95 per cent sure I was going to retire, and I think he is too, so it will get you through the camp better, said Froch. Even Andre Ward (the retired, undefeated former super- middleweight and light heavyweight) couldn't attract me.

A quick look at his record though does tell us plenty, with a blemish free career to his name up to this point, and 11 of 15 successes coming by way of KO.

He's the monster, he's the animal.

I fought Audley Harrison who was an Olympic gold medallist, he was a southpaw, so I brought in Tony Thompson a very experienced heavyweight campaigner who had given Vladimir Klitschko and David Price nightmares.

"Usyk is less of a puncher than Lomachenko but comes with just as high a work rate so Usyk has to take some to give some to be exciting whereas Lomachenko has genuine power and he can stop fighters with that power".

Ron DeSantis Beats Andrew Gillum To Become Florida Governor
DeSantis , meanwhile, was plagued by accusations of racism following remarks he made the day after his primary victory in August. Despite all the hype surrounding Gillum, he failed to gain as many votes as his senatorial counterpart, incumbent Democrat Sen.

"If I am honest, Usyk is the favourite, straight-talking, because he's unbeaten and he's done it at cruiserweight and he's undisputed". I don't need this fight - I've been set for life since my first clash with David Haye.

"Let's see if he wants this as much as me".

Any regrets from the Haye or Nathan Cleverly trash talk?

And this nearly certainly means that the wife would leave me.

I've done it the proper way.

Bellew might well prove to be a tough test himself this weekend in what could be his final fight but the betting for the bout certainly favours the away fighter, who remains something of a mystery in terms of style.

Every time you fight you take it seriously, but when you've had a few world title fights, it can get a little bit monotonous. This guy is a better fighter than me, he is, I have no problem saying that. I can't wait for it to stop.

For fans of the divisive but ever popular Tony Bellew this is anticipated as if it were the fight of the year.
