Oleksandr Usyk v Tony Bellew weigh in results: Bomber stuns Manchester audience with trim physique ahead of cruiserweight clash

Tony Bellew stunned fans, critics and audience members alike with his trim physique ahead of his cruiserweight clash with Oleksandr Usyk.

The ‘Bomber’ weighed in at 14st 3lbs 5oz ahead of the fight on Saturday night, with the defending, undisputed champion Usyk weighing 14st 2lbs.

Bellew looked as good as he ever has

Bellew has continuously insisted he is just a ‘fat Scouser’ throughout his career, even poking fun of himself when stood next to David Haye before their two fights.

However, his move back down to cruiserweight has forced him to drop below 200 pounds for the first time in two years since he beat BJ Flores in 2016.

And, under the watchful eye of trainer David Coldwell, the proud Everton fan has successfully managed to reach his target.

The 35-year-old insisted this fight will be his last, regardless of the result.

Usyk is the undisputed, undefeated cruiserweight champion

“It’s all over on Saturday night, it’s winner-take-all and I can’t wait,” Bellew said in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT host Jim White.

“Regardless of the outcome it’s all over, Saturday night is the final fight of my career.

“This is the last time I have to dance, this is the last time I have to put my neck on the line, this is the last time I risk everything and I’m a risking it all for the dream.

“It’s a dream that nobody even envisioned was possible, me included, never in a million years. Did I think I could become world champion? Yes, I’m not going to lie, and maybe even the best cruiserweight in the world and I think I have been that.

“But never in my wildest dreams did I think I was going to fight for the undisputed, unified cruiserweight championship of the world.

“I’m going to come back to the division and I’m going to take it on Saturday night.”
