Usyk-Bellew: Opening Press Conference

Oleksandr Usyk and Tony Bellew hold their first presser.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (15-0, 11 KOs), fresh off his WBSS tournament win, will be putting all four of his major titles on the line against Tony Bellew (30-2-1, 20 KOs) on November 10. You can catch the full kick off press conference right here, courtesy of our friends at Fight Hub TV.

Usyk, 31, took a unanimous decision over Murat Gassiev in July to unify all the major belts, and has since been looking for his next challenge. That challenge will come in the form of 35-year-old Bellew, who will be coming off two consecutive wins over David Haye in the heavyweight division as he prepares to make a statement before he rides off into the sunset.

Bellew has mentioned a number of times that this will be his last hurrah, and should he win he’ll retire as the undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world. Watch the full video above to see what the fighters had to say entering this bout.
