The famous former world champion made a frank confession

Famous British super heavyweight Tony Bellew (30-3-1, 20 KOs) expressed his opinion on the upcoming 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 urged not to write off the Ukrainian, given the amazing success with which he broke into the super-heavyweight division.

"He's going to beat Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia against all odds, acting as an underdog. Don't get me wrong, but he's not that much of an outsider. I know how good he is as a boxer. I was in the ring with him. But no one expected him to do what he did in the heavyweight division. It was also unexpected for me," Boxing Social quoted Bellew as saying.
