    This is fucking great news.

    Usyk to beat Bellew, then he can start working his way through Chisora/Whyte to see if he is good enough at the top weight to compete with Joshua, makes perfect sense.

    The Bellew fight isn't competitive, but it should get him paid, introduce him to the UK audience, and set up a HW run.

    He will absolutely destroy Bellend. It’ll be a pleasure to watch.

    Great news. Lets just hope that Hearn can buy off or is willing to buy off the WBA so that they don't wreck a meet up with Bellew.

    It (Bellew fight) was going to happen regardless. Usyk just makes more this way with the money crate DAZN was given and it doesn't put any complications between a potential match with Joshua.

    Yes but we've all earned the chance to see Bellew take this L and he's certainly earned it too.

    It's in the bag. Tony would fight at either heavy or cruiser.

    I think he'd do pretty well but you're right. If he comes up against a momster then its debatable.

    I got my fill when he got destroyed by Stevenson and then was arguing with Cleverly about who had the better resume between Stevenson and Kovalev (i.e. the two guys who destroyed him and Cleverly).
