Tony Bellew: I'll Keep Fighting Until The Screw Detaches Itself

Tony Bellew has insisted he will continue to fight and has targeted Tyson Fury and Andre Ward as potential future opponents.

On Saturday night, the 35-year-old stopped David Haye in five rounds in their rematch at London’s 02 Arena, dropping the former WBA heavyweight champion three times and leaving him to consider retirement.

Bellew’s trainer Dave Coldwell and his promoter Eddie Hearn revealed they would also like their fighter to retire, given two significant purses against Haye followed him having achieved his ambitions of winning a world title and fighting at Everton’s Goodison Park.

Despite his victories at heavyweight and the fact he continues to improve, Bellew recognises his natural size compared to that of reigning world champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder means they are too big and powerful for him to challenge.

He regardless considers the less powerful Fury a worthwhile risk and believes American Ward – a world champion at super-middleweight and light-heavyweight – can be tempted out of retirement.

“It’s hard when you’ve had your defining moment in this sport. What am I chasing?,” Bellew said.

“I don’t know. I like fighting and challenges, and I’ve definitely got a screw loose, so I’ll keep fighting until the screw detaches itself.

“I’m not stopping now. See if I can talk (wife Rachael) round and we’ll go from there. That’s my biggest fight.

“It doesn’t matter what I do I can’t beat (Goodison Park).

Bellew had struggled with the death of his brother-in-law Ashley Roberts last year.

He said: “It’s been emotionally one of the worst camps I’ve had, and I’m in a room at night crying myself to sleep. It’s hard losing a brother-in-law, your missus and the family is broken.

“I had his dad there (ringside), his brothers, and I left an empty seat (for Roberts) – they’re not cheap – but I know he was there and I dedicate this fight to him. My life’s a mess but it all makes sense in a boxing ring.

“I was hoping for a really hard fight, a war, that he would beat the fight out of me, but this has just added to the flames.”

[QUOTE=JcLazyX210;18747770]Oh ok. Fair enough thanks for the advice. I still think he's chin got exposed in those fights. But maybe it was lucky punch.[/QUOTE] If Lewis had a great chin like Ali did, I think he'd be in more conversations…
