Bellew spoke about Usyk

The unified world champion Oleksandr Usyk (34-0-1, 24 KOs) is the most outstanding heavyweight in the history of boxing. Not a single representative of the division, including the legendary American Evander Holyfield, will be able to match the Ukrainian athlete.

Such a categorical opinion was expressed by former world champion Tony Bellew in an interview with The Matchroom Boxing Podcast, The Independent reports. He noted that if Holyfield and Usyk met in their peak form, the Ukrainian would win an easy victory.

"This guy is the greatest cruiserweight who ever lived. There's no heavyweight in the history of sports who has beaten Oleksandr Usyk, and I don't care who you are. Evander Holyfield? Usyk would have simply calculated him, and Holyfield would not have been able to hit the Ukrainian," Bellew said.

As a reminder, the former British boxer fought Usyk in his last career fight. In November 2018, the Ukrainian knocked out Bellew in the ninth round and defended his title of absolute world heavyweight champion, after which he was promoted to the king's division.

Oleksandr Usyk is scheduled to fight the British Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24) in his next fight. The title of absolute world heavyweight champion will be at stake. Initially, it was planned that the boxers would enter the ring on December 23, but the fight was postponed.

The media announced the date of the confrontation. Journalists also claimed that the British boxer was threatened with a $240 million lawsuit if he refused to enter the ring with Usik by the end of the year. The Ukrainian himself admitted how the postponement of the fight affected him.
