Tony "the bomber" Bellew

Recommended Posts

Don't know why my family is suddenly of interest :lol:

Said exactly this in the gym yesterday morning. Haye will smash Bellew if he can get down to Cruiserweight again. He's stronger and has more technical ability than Bellew.

Think it was a bit if the occasion got to Bellew when he done that. He wont last 3 rounds with Haye imo.

Why wouldn't he be able to get down? This is what I don't get from suggestions here? He's a "natural cruiserweight" it will be done very very easily.

Absolute bollocks. Again on the basis of what? He can't shed fat? Because right now he's carrying lots of it.

200 pounds? He's put on loads of muscle, even at 4 percent body fat he'd be about 210 pounds minimum. Not happening, he'd lose power. He's 224 pounds now... no way could he lose that muscle he's put on to get to heavyweight competition level.

He's always been a big hitter especially at cruiserweight power wouldn't be an issue. He could cut no problem.

He could do it very easily. He just won't because he's going after the bigger prize.... Joshua and Fury. Dropping down to 200lb then back up to 220 in quick succession won't do him any favours. But to suggest he couldn't is just silly. He just "won't"

Not fought at cruiserweight in eight years. I've no great knowledge about boxing at all but logic suggests that a guy of his age would struggle to get back down to that and still have the power he did in his twenties.

After he lost all of the fat he would still be too heavy, would take way too long to lose that muscle weight. Would be a complete waste of time anyway.

Just to fight bellew it's not worth it for haye. Bellew knows he has very little opportunity to make big money at that weight vs heavy weight and he would get smashed up at heavy weight. Enticing haye in a big domestic fight is his only real cash cow.

 

Haye will get a few more bouts in, fight Joshua and then look after his money. I'm assuming he's skint.

Tis the reward money on the wanted posters that does it Matt. If I were you I would hide in MikeO's coal shed and get fed under the door for a year or two until it all dies down

how much of a cut of the fight did Everton get? I'm guessing since they own Goodison the club got some money other than the usage fee.

Knowing us nothing. Probably shook hands with Eddie Hearn on a 10% cut and he's not gonna pay up as it wasn't signed for.

Bellew wants to meet in the middle you loose ten pounds I'll gain it another daft catch-weight fight

 

Haye wouldn't make it to cruiserweight he's been on the gear in his lay off apparently and put far to much mass on

 

I'm not sure what Bellew would gain from it Haye is self promoted and both are marmite fighters neither will draw huge numbers and Bellew is likely to get pasted he should just stick to the division which is fairly weak and try and clean up

I thought that. He looks very soft muscle wise and has the over developed traps. Looks like he's been on growth hormone...

 

Like evander the cheat holyfield.

How so Haf? Didn't see it.

Seriously Mike.... the lad is a whopper.

 

Ok. In the fight florescent looked strong, for me won first round. Second round bellew threw the lowest punch I've seen, flores complained, was a crippler. Ref waved fight on and bellew took full advantage. Knocked him down 3 times in the round. The next knock down was a great punch but the low blow done the damage.

 

He then proceeded to jump over the ropes and front up David haye. Embarrassing. I'd love to like the lad but he's a nob.

Haye would smash his head in. Bellew's tough but ridiculously reckless. Haye would pick him off and his punches would hurt him. Behaved like a child afterwards and had an absolute nightmare calling Haye's hair 'Spongebob Squarepants' when he should have said Sideshow Bob.

Embarrassed himself tonight. Good win. He behaved like a tit after.

It was all pantomime. Haye was put there for a reason. There's now public interest and this fight will go from Dave to Sky Sports Box Office earning both fighters millions.

 

I agree about the low blow - won the fight for him although I do think he would have beaten him anyway.

Apparently Bellew and Haye are the best of buddies.... except in public. Odd how much the "public" want to see a money spinning fight between these two arch enemies don't you think?

The ref was very poor. He appeared not to see the low punch that everyone else saw. He should have warned Bellew and given the Yank time to recover. Bellew wouldn't stand a chance against Haye.

The low blow would have dropped a horse. Anyone who's took one in the bollocks knows that you are completely done after that.

 

He's a cringey nob head. Big space cake eyes, talking all very slowly with his big words... just gets on my nerves.

Love bellew as a blue and I admire him for making a career for him and his family but haye will knock him out in two rounds

Makes me feel sick with embarrassment. The way he goes on about his fists feeding his kids.... fuck off Tony.

 

You ain't James Braddock having to fight in the midst of the great depression for a few quid whilst your family are being looked after by the state. You are a multi millionaire who has never had to do half the work all of us on here do to pay our way.

I like Bellew, dont always agree with him, but he is an underrated boxer with heavy hands who knows how to build up a fight.

 

A fight with Haye would be great but he would get destroyed the first time Haye landed.

He's Marmite I don't mind him tbh he comes across a cock at times but in most interviews away from the mainstream media he's a level headed bloke

 

He's right in what he says about Haye though he's milking people for money fighting absolute shithouses he just went about it the wrong way and went a bit OTT

 

Haye won't make Cruiser again he's put on far to much mass so Bellew would have to move up but either way as much as I like him Haye would spank him he was an absolute animal at Cruiser definitely the best over the last decade or so

Love bellew. Great heart on him. Very underrated fighter. 

Serious outsider for this one, but he's been there and done it before. This Oleksandr Usyk fella seems to be a bit special though, just hope Tony has a decent go and no doubt his pension pot will take on serious proportion win or lose, wish him well.

Bellew is getting better later on in his career. Usyk is a top fighter but has only had 15 pro fights. My head says Usyk on points but with Bellews left hook he will catch him at some point and if he does he could stop him. Should be an excellent fight

Definitely, he won’t give anyone an easy fight if Usyk isn’t on it early rounds he’ll be gone in the 4th, if he brings his A game he’s still going by the 9th he’s not come across the intensity of a Bellew before he’s getting k’od.

I'm a big Bellew fan but Usyk schooled Klitscko in sparring when he was training for the Fury fight, for me its going to be one sided and Bellew is going to be schooled. Hope I'm wrong!

Bellew is far better than given credit for.   The British public have been getting seduced by supposedly skilled boxers like degale & Khan.  I always thought he was inbetween being a boxer and a puncher without being good at either ... Turns out he can box and certainly can punch.

He's got heavy hands and can change a losing fight into a win in a second. 

Aside that... he's a top bloke. I admire his loyalty and love for his family.

Big Bellew fan but he's bitten off more than he can chew in Usyk who's probably the best cruiserweight since Holyfield 

He has a punchers chance and the heart of a lion but with the weight drop and  Usyk being one of the best technical boxers on the planet he will grind him down and Tony will fold in the later round imo 

Would love to see a huge huge upset but just can't see it

Did really well but against such a class fighter especially a southpaw he was always going to get caught as it went on 

Can hold his head high and hopefully retire a wealthy proud man

Thought it was a heavy knockdown and rather than getting him interviewed he needed get checked out.   Badly concussed.  Usyk is very good. 

Very poor from Sky that, just glad he hit the ropes if he'd have gone flat on his back it could have been a different story

Hope he comes out unscathed.... he was blinking a lot by all accounts 2 or 3 rounds before the knockout.   I didn't see that cos my stream was blurry..

A Boxer blinking isn'tt  good. I remember the Benn McLennan fight. 

He can step away now. He's engaging and knowledgeable so I'd like to see him go into punditry.

Did himself proud in that fight, I didn't have him ahead before the knockout though, though he won the first couple of rounds but then the class showed.

Eddie Hearn confirmed on Instagram that Bellew was checked by the doctor and was cleared after the KO but he was defo concussed as he kept repeating himself and kissing Usyk, probably landed more kisses than punches!

Bellew was on Talksport before and said he's done, Tony Bellew was his boxing persona who is now dead, he is Antony Bellew and wants to live a quiet life. I am hoping he pops up on PPV's doing commentary etc as he is very, very good at that too.
