40-Year-Old Bellew Considers A Comeback Against WBC Bridgerweight Champ Lukasz Rozanski

40-year-old Tony Bellew has entertained the idea of a comeback after calling out WBC bridgerweight champion Lukasz Rozanski.

Bellew walked away from the sport following his knockout defeat to Oleksandr Usyk in 2018.

While that was not the way the Brit wanted to bow out of the sport, there was no shame in coming second best to an all-time great in Usyk.

The latter was undisputed at cruiserweight and has unified the heavyweight division since then.

Meanwhile, Bellew finished with a more than respectable record of 30 wins that included only three losses.

The Brit’s career was topped off when he beat Ilunga Makabu to win the vacant WBC cruiserweight title via a third-round TKO.

That was followed up by two mega domestic fights with David Haye, as Bellew stopped the former unified cruiserweight and the WBA heavyweight champion with two consecutive stoppages.

Since leaving the sport, Bellew has been working in the media, most notably for DAZN. Although Bellew may have nothing else to prove, it appears that he does have history on his mind.

Victory over Rozanski would make Bellew a two-weight world champion. And as the Pole is 37 years old, it appears Bellew fancies his chances as Rozanski was receptive to the idea.

Despite Bellew’s enthusiasm, the boxing community were against the former champion returning.
