Joshua: Usyk is a ’perfect’ fighter

"Without any doubt this is the biggest fight I've been involved in", revealed Coldwell during a quiet moment away from the typical hysteria of fight week.

I was about 95 per cent sure I was going to retire, and I think he is too, so it will get you through the camp better, said Froch.

Bellew climbed up a division to inflict stunning knockouts on Haye, but it remains to be seen whether he can repeat this feat against the supremely talented Usyk, a recent victor of the World Boxing Super Series.

"Bellew is a good boxer, a very intelligent boxer", said Stevenson. Even though Bellew eventually won, it shows you that he can be hurt, he can be dropped by a southpaw.

"No disrespect to Gassiev because he's an excellent fighter but on that night he froze and he was a walking punch bag".

I don't think there will be an issue with Bellew coming down to the cruiserweight category after going up around a stone in weight against myself previous year, he didn't bulk up and do a lot of bodybuilding.

Stevenson was the last fighter to pull off a victory over Bellew, when he stopped him in six rounds back in 2013 at 175-pounds. It's a fight that's credible, and I respect Bellew, because after that David Haye fight it was a question whether he was going to retire or was he going to carry on?

"I don't know how or when, or at what stage it will happen". Tony has excelled in the underdog role on several occasions before this fight and it makes no difference to him whatsoever what people think his chances are. He's in this fight with a punch for 36 minutes, so never give up, believe. But I will get to him.

Hopefully, by rounds 7-12 you'd be putting the pressure and heat on him, if you get caught with a shot early, you're not going to leave yourself open to it again.

"He likes to talk a lot, as you already know". Then, from an entertaining point of view, Usyk is like a flawless boxer, so I hope Bellew is working on his counter-punches as well, because that's the way to knock him out - let him tippy-tap and then explode.

This will be the second time Bellew has fought for a cruiserweight world title, as he previously held the WBC crown after defeating Illunga Makabu in 2016.

"I really want him to win, so my passion is with him, regardless". Book it online here.
