Bellew: Me vs. Tyson Fury Would Draw 70-80,000 at Principality

Former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew is more than willing to continue his heavyweight run - and one of the main targets on his list is Tyson Fury.

Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), a former IBF, WBO, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion, will return to the ring on Saturday night in Manchester, against Sefer Seferi.

The contest will be the first for Fury since his shocking twelve round unanimous decision win over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

Bellew has become a player in the heavyweight ranks - after securing back to back stoppage wins over former world champion David Haye.

Last month, Bellew knocked out Haye in five rounds after scoring three knockdowns in the contest.

Bellew wants the biggest fight possible, and Fury is certainly on his target list for a major payday.

"100 percent, without a shadow of a doubt [I want to face Fury]. The big challenge, me against all the odds, as usual, and that is something I like the sound of," Bellew told Sky Sports.

"I find it comical, the fact that he wouldn't fight me because I am a cruiserweight, yet he is actually fighting a cruiserweight, which I find quite funny. I understand why Tyson doesn't want to come anywhere near me with the calibre of opponents he will be facing. I am a vast step up. He's making David Haye look like he faced Ivan Drago in his comeback, with this opponent. It is a bit of a joke of a match-up but he has had a long time out of the ring and he needs to get back on top."

Bellew feels confident that a showdown with Fury will bring in at least 70-80,000 fans to a venue like Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

"The Principality Stadium would be nice because we know it's got a roof and I am sure we can get 70-80,000 in there that want to see me put Fury on his back," Bellew said.

"I am not going to tarnish what I achieved at Goodison Park, that night. It was a one-off event, a one-off fight and it is only going to happen once. I don't fancy going back there trying to do it again."

People would only turn out in force for the fat pikey to watch him lose. Fury is overrated as fck after a PED assisted win over klitsko. But even so, he will flatten little tony.

[QUOTE=Paddy Mashdown;18829784]Tony has nowhere to go. He should just retire on a high, he's already made more money than he ever imagined he could do, and he has a job at sky sports waiting for him.[/QUOTE] I agree but if…
