Bellew Claims He’s Talked With UFC

Former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew seems interested in making a jump from the squared circle to the Octagon.

 

Bellew takes on ex-WBA heavyweight champion David Haye on May 5th at the O2 Arena, and confirmed that he talked with the UFC about a potential fight against former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.

“IMG I think it was, the guys I met with in Vegas,” he said when speaking to talkSPORT. “At the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather fight, I had a sit down with a couple of guys.

“They were like ‘are you serious?’ and I said ‘100%’.

“I would love to have a go in a cage. Something about it floats my boat.”

Bellew and Bisping talked some smack for a potential fight with 10oz gloves, but never materialized.

“Bisping can talk – and you know what, I would love it,” Bellew continued. “But I’ve got all the respect in the world for Bisping, it wouldn’t cross over to be nasty or anything. I’m pretty sure it would just be fun.

“If I hit someone with four-ounce gloves on, it is naughty.”
