History beckons for Tony Bellew

History beckons for Tony Bellew

In what could be his last fight, the Brit can become the undisputed cruiserweight champion if he beats Oleksandr Usyk on Sky Sports Box Office

Could we see one of British boxing’s most popular fighters step into the ring for the final time on a huge night of action from Manchester?

Usyk v Bellew, Saturday 10 November, 6pm, Sky Sports Box Office. £19.95 for SD, £20.95 for HD. Booking now open

Sporting swansongs are rarely perfect. Few stars get to choose how and when they bow out of the spotlight, and even fewer get to do so as an undisputed champion.

 

In what could be the last fight of his career, Tony Bellew has the chance to become the undisputed world cruiserweight champion when he takes on the undefeated Oleksandr Usyk at the Manchester Arena, live and exclusive on Sky Sports Box Office.

 

Usyk (15 bouts, 15 wins, 11 knockouts) is the first man in history to hold the WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO and Ring magazine cruiserweight titles at the same time – and the former Olympic heavyweight champion is putting them all on the line against the Liverpudlian in one of the most hotly anticipated nights of boxing in years.

 


But is Bellew, now 35, ready to take his big chance? His has been a career filled with highs and lows at every turn, and now he has the opportunity to follow May’s headline-grabbing victory over David Haye (pictured) with what would undoubtedly be his biggest ever triumph. The perennial underdog now has unparallelled glory in his sights.

 

For the ferocious Usyk, beating Bellew is part of a long-term strategy that he hopes will culminate in a heavyweight bout with Anthony Joshua. He’s risking everything for a shot at ultimate glory – but will the gamble pay off when he enters the ring in front of a passionate British crowd that will be overwhelmingly in favour of Bellew?

 

This fight has all the ingredients of a must-watch classic, and with an undercard packed with even more unmissable action, make sure you follow all of the drama live and exclusive on Sky Sports Box Office. For now, here are the fighters’ crucial stats…
