This article doesn't do justice to this historical moment. Was hoping to see an analysis of some sort yet just read a shamble of an article.
What a terrible article!!! Might as well just say "there was a fight and a guy won". Really poor.
"Bellew is not in the same class. His article the other day was honestly sickening, the guy thinks so much of himself."I think boxers at this level who twice prove their detractors wrong kind of deserve to think a lot of themselves. This isn't tiddlywinks. You armchair fighters are nauseating.
"Usyk had the edge" - in fact Usyk won virtually every round against a very good fighter in Gassiev. He put on a boxing masterclass - the best performance I've seen by a boxer for some time. Anyone who thinks Bellew is going to beat Usyk doesn't understand the levels involved in boxing. Usyk is definitely top 5 P4P and possibly top 3, he'll box Bellew's head off.
I was disappointed how little coverage this fight got. Massive fight, and even after the event the BBC website gives it a couple of paragraphs.Personally I can't see Bellew beating Usyk.
I hate to say it but I think Bellew would beat Usyk. But, and it's a big but, the bigger money is elsewhere and he's just bigheaded enough to take on Fury. He won't get a sniff of a Joshua bout.So one big payday and done because he just isn't big enough to win that one and his career could be ended.
Usyk dominated he didn't 'just about deserve to win' !
Glad Usyk came through it, showed his class again.Usyk vs Bellew would be entertaining, but Usyk has too much quality for Bellew. I'd prefer to see it at HW, as it would be interesting to see how Usyk moves with the extra weight. I also think the BBC missed a trick here by not highlighting the fight. Usyk is potentially an AJ opponent of the future, and a very dangerous one at that.
Agree that Bellew should shut up and put up for a fight with Usyk but those Eastern European fighters are tough cookies, he knows he could get a battering.
Come on Bellew this is the fight, so stop talking nonsense and take it
Usyk won every round with solid boxing skills using his jab effectively.Where does he go from here? I think he'll blow away Bellew.Unfortunately, the cruiserweight division doesn't have the appeal that it deserves so I guess he'll move up to heavyweight.Great performance.
