Former world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew, who was overly supportive of Derek Chisora during the fight against Oleksandr Usyk, claims he has a good attitude towards the Ukrainian. According to Bellew, he would be rooting for Usyk if he fought with another opponent.
“Usyk is a great fighter. I have nothing for him but love, respect and admiration. He knows about it. Usyk said that he wants to play golf with me the next time he flies to the UK. As I said, he is good fighter. I would support him if he didn’t fight my friend. I give 100 percent that I would support him.
If Usyk fought, for example, with Alexander Povetkin, I would have supported him as loudly as Chisora. Perhaps he would not have understood a single word of mine, but I would have been rooting for him, “Tony Bellew said in an interview with the YouTube channel Behind The Gloves.
