Fight absolute world champion in the heavyweight Alexander Usik (15-0, 11 KO’s) and British Tony Bellew (30-2-1, 20 KO) may not take place.
Fight the Tendril-Bellew was scheduled for November 10 and was to be held in London, however, the world Boxing Association (WBA) last week ordered the Ukrainians to start negotiations for a fight with former world champion Russian Denis Lebedev (31-2, 23 KO), who yesterday in Chelyabinsk knocked out Hisni Altunkaya (30-3, 17 KO) and confirmed their claims to fight with Usyk.
“I think if the fight Cirrus-Bellew will be held in November-December, Tony will start with sports. The fight or will take place now, or not held at all. We had very good talks with the Mustache and promotional company K2.
Bellew wants the fight, but he wants to be at stake were all the belts. He wants to be undisputed world champion. If a fight is so risky, but the reward should be appropriate.
I think for Moustache between Lebedev and Bellew is preferable to choose a fight with Bellew. I think this will be his last fight in the heavyweight division, and I see him in hevewae,” said new promoter Eddie Hearn Mustache.
Oleksandr Usyk in late July in Moscow by unanimous decision won a convincing victory over Murat by Gassieva (26-1, 19 KO’s). The biggest success in his career he made the Cirrus the absolute world champion and winner of the Cup of a name of Muhammad Ali.
