Usyk vs Bellew: Tony Bellew to face undisputed cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk in Manchester

Tony Bellew will challenge Oleksandr Usyk for all the world cruiserweight titles at Manchester Arena on November 10, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The Merseysider is stepping down a division following his heavyweight victories over David Haye after receiving a challenge from Usyk, the winner of the World Boxing Super Series final in July.

Bellew previously held the WBC cruiserweight title following a 2016 knockout win over Ilunga Makubu and intends to pull off one more famous upset win to become the division's undisputed champion.

"This is the ultimate test for me," said Bellew. "There is no greater test than Oleksandr Usyk, he is one of the most feared men in boxing. This is nothing new to me, everyone says that I can't do it again. Everybody is saying that I'll get beat-up quickly, but we'll find out won't we.

"Make no mistake, I know this is the most dangerous fight of my life, but I'm also going into this with my eyes wide open, I'm not in awe of Oleksandr Usyk. I won't stand and admire him and allow him to rattle off five-punch combinations on my head.
