The famous super heavyweight gave a frank interview

The famous British super heavyweight Tony Bellew (30-3-1, 20 KOs) made his prediction for the fight for the title of absolute champion between Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). The former world champion believes that the Ukrainian will win, but fears that there will be unfair refereeing.

"It will be interesting. I think it will be unpleasant to watch, but Oleksandr Usyk will win. I hope he won't get robbed by the judges, because if he wins by decision, it will be the best result of any fighter I've ever seen. The Ukrainian fought every champion in his territory and unified the divisions. He did it in the heavyweight division. He came home to London to Anthony Joshua and beat him there," Boxing Social quoted Bellew as saying.
