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.

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.
