Bellew vs Usyk Preview and Prediction

Bellew has then got that punch, and if he lands that left hook, Usyk will be out cold.

Even though Joshua thinks so highly of Usyk, the unified heavyweight champion is picking Tony Bellew to win their upcoming showdown in Manchester.

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.

He doesn't look that unsafe, but slowly and surely, he's breaking you down with those body shots, his angles make him a very awkward guy to fight and anybody that's shared the ring with him have said they just couldn't get to grips with him.

The sensible pick would be to take Usyk via late stoppage, having bamboozled Bellew for much of the fight, causing visible damage that would ultimately force a compassionate stoppage around the 9.

He has 2203 runs in 86 matches and is second in the world, just after Martin Guptill of New Zealand. Obviously last game we bowled and fielded very, very well.

I was retired after the second Haye fight.

Boxing is a sport that waits for no man and this weekend will see British viewers tuning into see one of the hottest properties in the fight game. "We can not forget the relationship between Bellew and the WBC". I'm a huge underdog and no one expects anything from me. But only for this moment, I am not thinking about anything. "If he does, you're in for the best night of fighting ever". But all fighters have vulnerabilities and I have to expose his.

The 31-year-old is no spring chicken in age terms but he remains lightly raced as a pro with just 15 fights to his name so far, which makes him a relative novice without the head guard. I am feeling wonderful, healthy, and confident. I wasn't good enough to win an Olympic gold - my style wasn't right - but I've stayed with it.

With Bellew's most recent fights coming at heavyweight level against David Haye, the Merseysider could well have his work cut out against Usyk, but with Joshua's tips, Bellew may surprise the boxing world once more.

Hopefully, by rounds 7-12 you'd be putting the pressure and heat on him, if you get caught with a shot early, you're not going to leave yourself open to it again.
