Bellew: Tyson Fury is Not a Puncher, I'd Love To Knock Him Out!

Tony Bellew is looking for the next big fight.

He wants to eventually get in the ring with former heavyweight king Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), who is back in the ring on June 9th in Manchester.

Fury has been out of the ring since November of 2015, when he traveled over to Germany to shock the world with huge upset twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko.


On Saturday night, Bellew appeared to have all but ended the career of former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion David Haye with a fifth-round stoppage win in their anticipated rematch.

Haye had been stopped by Bellew in the 11th round after suffering an Achilles injury when the pair met in March last year.

In the third round, Bellew twice sent Haye to the canvas thanks to a pair of powerful right-hand punches. The end came in the fifth after Bellew landed a left hook that sent Haye for a third time and the fight was stopped not long after.

While Bellew is not willing to fight someone as large as WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, he would love to get in the ring with Fury- because he believes is not a real puncher at the weight - unlike Wilder and unified champion Anthony Joshua.

"I'd love Tyson Fury. I'd love to knock him out," said Bellew.

"Timing is everything in this sport. I'm not saying I would have beaten him in Dusseldorf when he beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. Fury isn't a big puncher like Anthony Joshua or Haye. He's big, elusive and fast for a heavyweight. It's a fight I like."

Bellew's head trainer, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, does not believe Fury will entertain a potential fight with anyone like Bellew in the near future.

"When you see who Tyson Fury fights over the next three or four fights, he wont go near Tony Bellew," Hearn said.

I predicted this match up, it’s a big UK payday for Bellew and an easy name for Fury. Bellew will lose.

[QUOTE=Paddy Mashdown;18742802]He wasn't on peds for the Klitschko fight, hence why he's still got the w and hasn't been sued by K2. It was a witch hunt and Fury only [B]accepted the charges[/B] because he wanted to get back in…
