Bellew about the Usyk – Chisora ​​fight: “I hope that the right Chisora ​​will get where it needs to be, but it will be difficult to do it

On October 31, the owner of all major belts, Alexander Usik (17-0, 13 KOs), will perform in the heavyweight division for the second time in his professional career. His opponent will be Briton Derek Chisora ​​(32-9, 23 KOs). The fight was originally planned for May 23, but due to the pandemic it was postponed to October 31.

British boxer Tony Bellew, who unsuccessfully tried to take away the titles from Alexander Usyk in 2018, in an interview with Sky Sports warned Derek Chisora ​​about the difficulty of the future fight. Judging by the words, Bellew is seriously alarmed by the outcome of the fight, since he is well aware of the Ukrainian boxer’s abilities:

“Derek is my friend, he is practically a member of my family. I support him, I will be by his side, no matter what. But on October 31, when he comes into the ring, I will not be able to help him. He will have to do everything on his own. Believe me, he has the opportunity for this. However, Usyk is the best fighter in the world who knows how to keep the distance. And if someone can stop him, it’s only Chisora. I hope that his powerful right will get where it needs to be and this will all end But it will be damn hard to do. “
