Bellew needs big­gest win to upset Usyk

Daily Messenger - - Spotlight -

MANCH­ESTER: Tony Bellew must de­liver one of the big­gest wins ever by a British fighter if he is to hum­ble Olek­sandr Usyk, says me­dia.

Satur­day's Manch­ester Arena bout will present Bellew with the chance to be­come the first Bri­ton to hold four world ti­tles in a weight divi­sion.

Ukraine's Usyk - IBF, WBO, WBA and WBC cruis­er­weight cham­pion - is un­beaten.

"I think it will be one of the all-time best dis­plays by a Bri­ton home or abroad if Bellew wins," said Costello.

"In Usyk, we are talk­ing here about one of the best. If he is al­lowed to get into a rhythm, he does so very quickly within two or three rounds and be­comes just about un­touch­able."

The bout - which will be broad­cast on BBC Ra­dio 5 live - will see all four world ti­tles on the line for just the sixth time in men's box­ing his­tory.

In his own words Bellew, 35, is ready to "shock the world and then do the great­est dis­ap­pear­ing act."
