The famous British heavyweight made a frank confession

Former world heavyweight champion Tony Bellew (30-3-1, 20 KOs), who works as an expert on DAZN streaming, analyzed the strengths of Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) ahead of his fight against Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). Bellew recalled the Ukrainian's fight in Moscow against Murat Gassiev when our compatriot made a fool of the Russian.

Bellew is delighted with the Crimean's pressure and footwork.

"Usyk wants you to attack him. And when a fighter like Murat Gassiev attacks him, he makes an absolute fool of his opponent. He'll leave Fury no choice but to attack him because he'll be in the lead from the start of the fight and Tyson will be chasing a ghost," said Tony in an interview with Karl Froch's YouTube channel, translated by Vringe.

Bellew is confident that Fury will suffer in a fight with the Ukrainian heavyweight.

"Look at Tyson Fury's entire career. What style did he suffer the most with? With boxers who move. With fighters on the back foot. With small fighters on the back foot who were good boxers," the expert admitted.
