Bellew Says Fury Isn’t Ready For Him
Judging by Tyson Fury’s performance nearly two weeks ago, Tony Bellew said the former world heavyweight champion is “not ready” for a fight with him.
Bellew was less than impressed as Fury pummeled converted cruiserweight Sefer Seferi in his first fight in three years.
When asked about the prospect of facing Fury, Belle claims the “Gypsy King” needs more time.
“I would love it,” Bellew told Sky Sports. “People tell me that he said I’m too small, yet he gets in with a guy three inches smaller than me, and about a stone lighter.
“I’m not too sure what he actually means when he says too small. Right now, I’ll be honest, Tyson Fury isn’t really ready for me. I would stop Tyson Fury quicker than I stopped David Haye. There’s no two ways about it.
“I think he needs another fight, and I’ll give him another fight, no problem at all. But we need to talk, speak to Eddie Hearn.”
While Bellew is more than confident in the level of box office the two would have in an anticipated domestic clash, he feels that Fury needs time.
“Tyson Fury is not ready for me in any way, shape or form. I don’t care what kind of version you give me,” Bellew told Sky Sports. “When I put someone on their back, they don’t get away with it. They stay down.”
“I’m very happy that Tyson Fury is back. The heavyweight division is buzzing again, but understand me, I will end it for you, not a problem at all.”
