Oleksandr Usyk vs Tony Bellew confirmed for November 10 at Manchester Arena

Tony Bellew will challenge Oleksandr Usyk for his WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO titles on November 10 in Manchester Arena.

The self-proclaimed “fat Scouser” is set to throw himself into yet another huge challenge after two consecutive heavyweight wins over David Haye.

Bellew must now move back down in weight to meet the 14st 4lbs (200lbs) limit in order to challenge the Ukrainian undisputed world champion for all four of the major world titles that he currently has in his possession.

“I cannot wait to fight in the UK,” declared Usyk. “I am deep into my training camp with my team, working hard and preparing for a long fight with Tony.

“He says he will beat me and I love his attitude, but you cannot beat-up somebody who is invisible in the ring!

“As always, I will be victorious on November 10.”

Usyk is the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO undisputed cruiserweight world champion

Bellew stated: “There is no greater test than Oleksandr Usyk. He is one of the most feared men in boxing.

“This is nothing new to me, everyone says that I can’t do it again. Everyone is saying that I’ll get beat-up quickly, but we’ll find out won’t we.

“I’m not in awe of Usyk. I won’t stand and admire him and allow him to rattle off five-punch combinations on my head.

“I’m going into this fight with absolutely nothing to lose because the whole world thinks I’m going to get smashed. I have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

“On November 10 I’m going to do something that nobody has ever done before, I’m going to knockout an undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world.”
