Liverpool’s Tony Bellew takes on Oleksandr Usyk for the WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and Ring Magazine belts at the Manchester Arena on Saturday in what he has already announced will be the final fight of his professional career. The 35-year-old will be looking to become the undisputed cruiserweight world champion when he takes on the Ukrainian. Speaking before the fight, Bellew said: “I am about to take the biggest step that any British fighter has ever taken,” he added. “I can lose this fight, no mistakes about it, and I think it will detract a little bit from me if that was to happen, but I can accept it. This is the first time in my career that I can accept losing and that’s because I couldn’t accept retiring and saying: ‘He called my name,’ and I declined the chance to become the undisputed champion of the world.” The ECHO will be providing you with live updates and analysis throughout the night of explosive action both in the build-up and the fight itself here on our live blog.
