Tony Bellew wants to fight Usyk in the UK. Usyk agrees to the challenge!
We just may see Oleksandr Usyk (15-0, 11 KOs) facing off against Tony Bellew (30-2-1 20 KOs) later this year.
Bellew at 35 years-old, is a former WBC Cruiserweight Champion. He recently won back-to-back fights against David Haye while campaigning at heavyweight.
It is also worth noting he never lost his WBC title but was placed as a champion in recess.
He started aggressively pursing a fight with Usyk the night he became the cruiserweight undisputed champion.
Bellew in an interview revealed Usyk has agreed to the fight happening in the UK. Meanwhile, promoter Eddie Hearn continues to work on making a deal.
If this blockbiluster match-up happens, it will more than likely headline a card under the new DAZN _UK banner.
Every since becoming undisputed cruiserweight champion, Usyk has been taking full advantage of the situation by exploring all options.
At this moment, it is unclear what weight this fight will take place at.
