Tony Bellew: I'll End Tyson Fury's Comeback Run, No Problem!

Former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew is very confident that he would end the comeback run of Tyson Fury (26-0, 20 KOs).

Fury returned to the ring last weekend in Manchester, and stopped overmatch opponent Sefer Seferi in four rounds.

It was the first bout for Fury since shocking the world with a twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko in November of 2015.


After match last week's performance, Bellew does not believes Fury is ready to face him.

Bellew is riding a hot streak of wins, including back to back knockout victories over former heavyweight champion David Haye.

The Liverpool star has been calling for a fight with Fury since last year - and he believes the size difference will be irrelevant.

"People tell me that he said I'm too small, yet he gets in with a guy three inches smaller than me, and about a stone lighter," Bellew told Sky Sports.

From a marketing standpoint, Bellew says the contest would be huge - and he expects it to draw a pretty big crowd not only to the actual fight but also to the pre-fight media events.

"I'm pretty sure we could sell out any stadium," said Bellew to Sky Sports.

"I probably think we could do a stadium just for the press conference. If he wants to come as Batman, I'll come as the Joker. Whichever way you want to play this, I'll deal with it, I can do it.

"Tyson Fury is not ready for me in any way, shape or form. I don't care what kind of version you give me. I've seen the best of him against Steve Cunningham and he was flat on his back. When I put someone on their back, they don't get away with it. They stay down. I'm very happy that Tyson Fury is back. The heavyweight division is buzzing again, but understand me, I will end it for you, not a problem at all."

Fury is too big and too tall for Bellew. I'd still pay to watch the fight though.

Bellews only chance would be to take advantage of ring rust and stay out the way of the jab using defence with his smaller frame. This ain't David Haye, it's a big guy with long reach and he would need…

[QUOTE=tonysoprano;18868556]Don't think so, even a fit Fury had a piss-poor record of KO's. He didn't KO any top level HW's and struggled to get Journeymen like Chisora and McDermott out of there. He's just not a big puncher.[/QUOTE] That's BS,…

God you would need a sledge hammer to get to this big goofs head to even have a chance at knocking him out.

[QUOTE=Brooklyn926;18869803]I wonder what deformity of the mind all you people referring to “this version” and “that version” of fury like he can go home and change how he fight like he changes personalities. There is no justification for his last…
