Roared on by a passionate home crowd, Bellew started brightly and was ahead on two of the three judges scorecards when the fight was stopped.

But Usyk, who has never lost a professional fight, was the man getting stronger as the bout wore on and delivered the knockout blow with a left hand to leave Bellow floored.

Anthony Crolla looks set to fight for his old WBA lightweight title against the pound-for-pound king Vasyl Lomachenko after winning on points over Indonesia’s Daud Yordan in a final eliminator. The scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 116-112.

Ricky Burns stopped Scotty Cardle in great fashion and proved he still has plenty more in the tank. The pair clashed in a late-notice lightweight dust-up at Manchester Arena, with the Scot getting the better of his former sparring partner in a statement-maker.

Josh Kelly took less than a round to move to 8-0 in the paid code. The Sunderland welterweight, who has the WBA Inter-Continental and Commonwealth titles at the weight, dismantled Walter Fabian Castillo inside a round.

Great pics of an entertaining fight. Both fighters are very classy. Bellew should do well in retirement and Usyk is clearly one of the best cruiserweights there has been. It will be interesting to see what he does later.

[QUOTE=MDPopescu;19264315]... darker color objects always look smaller... :) ( but look at Bellew's left glove as compared with Usyk's right glove here...)

[QUOTE=steeve steel;19264379]Was already a fan of Usyk, but now that he rid us of mediocre and arrogant Bellew, well... I will be eternally grateful.[/QUOTE] Well said!

Naturally the next question will be were doe's Usyk go from here? If it's a move to H/W then "Fa$t ¬£ddie" could play a genius stroke by matching him with EBU champ Agit Kabayel followed by the Fury/Wilder winner. If…
