Bellew Promises Wife Usyk Is Last Fight
Win or lose, November 10th is the end for Tony Bellew as a boxer, at least that’s what his wife tells him.
The 35 year old former world champion looks to become undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world on November 10th at the Manchester Arena against Oleksandr Usyk, and knows that this is the last stand of his career.
Ad Monday’s press conference Bellew made it clear that this would be the end, saying, “If I don’t stop after this, she (his wife Rachael) is going to divorce me!
“We’ve only been married a few months. I don’t fancy getting divorced, it’s not part of the plan.
“She’ll probably be watching this. Babe, I promise you this is – maybe – the last one.”
“I wanted him to retire and walk away after the last David Haye fight, Bellew’s trainer, Dave Coldwell explained on Monday. “I saw Usyk call Tony’s name straight after winning the World Super Series during his interview in the ring and I thought ‘oh sh*t we’re going again’. I just knew, I didn’t have to text him or anything, I just knew it was a fight that was going to happen. So, we’re here and it’s a massive challenge but it’s only fitting,” said Bellew’s trainer Dave Coldwell.
“He’s a man that everyone loves to give zero chance. Now he’s showing his metal, his heart and his determination because there’s something there that he wants and he’s going to put it all on the line once more, we can’t wait.”
