Usyk And Bellew Make Weight In Manchester




WBC/WBA/IBF and WBO cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk tipped the scale 1lb less than British challenger Tony Bellew ahead of their world title showdown in Manchester, England on Saturday night.

 

The unbeaten champion weighed in at 14st 2lbs while Bellew hit the scale at 14st 3lbs

 

During a heated exchange during the face off, where both men covered their faces, Usyk with a Manchester City soccer scarf and Bellew, a bandana.

 

Speaking to Sky Sports News Bellew said: "I feel fantastic - fat boy is in shape," Bellew told Sky Sports News.

 

"I’m ready for war. He’s in the deep end. I know exactly where I’m at." When Bellew was asked what he saw in Usyk’s eyes, the Briton said: "A lunatic, the exact thing he’s looking at. We are going to create madness. I’m going to shock the world once again. The only person who beats me, is me!"
