All the information you need to watch Oleksandr Usyk vs Tony Bellew.
What time is Usyk vs Bellew?
The undisputed world cruiserweight title fight will not be on before 10pm.
How good is Usyk?
One of the very best in the world. Unbeaten in 15 professional fights, the first undisputed world cruiserweight champion to hold four recognised titles. As an amateur he won gold at the Olympics at London 2012, the World Championships and the European title when it took place in Liverpool. As Anthony Joshua said, Usyk looks like the perfect boxer.
Is he the massive favourite?
Yes, in a word. Skybet have got the Ukrainian a heavy favourite at 1/8 on, with Bellew now out at 6/1 to pull off one of the biggest shocks the world of boxing has seen.
What’s on the line?
The small matter of the IBF, WBA, WBC and WBO world cruiserweight titles – and the coveted Ring Magazine belt too.
Bellew is chasing greatness, while Usyk has already said he is ready to move up to heavyweight and admits a showdown with Anthony Joshua is already an interesting prospect.
Who else is on the card?
The Manchester Arena crowd will have plenty to cheer about, we hope, as Anthony Crolla takes on Daud Yordan in a final WBA lightweight eliminator.
Crolla could get a crack at none other than Usyk’s good friend and pound-for-pound supremo, Vasyl Lomachenko. His old foe Ricky Burns takes on Scott Cardle in a must-win fight, the ‘White Rhino’ David Allen has promised another quick knockout, with hot prospect Josh Kelly also showcasing his skills.
