Usyk vs Bellew Betting Preview
Usyk is the finest fighter on the planet in this weight classOleksandr Usyk achieved just about everything he set out to in the amateur ranks, winning gold at the Olympics in 2012, World Championships Baku 2011 and European Championships Liverpool 2008. Mixing supreme ring intelligence with mischievous spite, Usyk has since eased into the professional ranks and amassed a 15-0 record. He became the first undisputed cruiserweight champion since Evander Holyfield this year as he beat in Moscow the undefeated home fighter, Murat Gassiev, by wide unanimous decision. Usyk cemented his status as the number one cruiserweight on the planet by winning the World Boxing Super Series this year
Fast of feet with exceptional upper body movement, Usyk is arguably the finest combination puncher the division has ever seen. He will dictate the pace and the distance of the fight because appears to have an uncanny ability to read his opponent perfectly. Furthremore, the champ is heavy handed (73% KO ratio), busy and can fight from the outside, inside and is unflinching in exchanges. His quicker hands will cause Bellew tremendous problems, and Bellew will probably struggle to get his punches off to counter.
100/1 Bellew to beat Usyk
Bellew arrives on the back of a 10-bout winning run, covering five yearsTony Bellew, 30-2-1 (20 KOs), is a Rocky story in it’s own right. He won each of his first 16 outings, before running into Welshman Nathan Cleverly, a fight he lost at light heavyweight on a majority decision. The Evertonian got his revenge three years later by split decision in a higher weight category. Bellew then who dusted himself off from a humbling loss to WBC light-heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson in 2013 to reenergise himself in the cruiserweight division. In 2016, after six straight victories, Bellew turned on the style at his beloved Goodison Park to claim the WBC championship by defeating Ilunga Makabu in three rounds. He then stepped up to the heavyweight ranks and twice beating ex-champion David Haye.
All his career, Bellew has been listed as the underdog but he has repeatedly defied his critics and odds. His status has not changed against Usyk but bookmaker William Hill has now revealed that 76.6% of all bets placed on the fight have been the Briton to pull off an upset in what could be his final fight. Bellew’s jab is an underrated weapon and Usyk can be susceptible to a fast and educated lead. The Ukrainian is not faultless or impossible to hit, as the likes of Mairis Briedis and Michael Hunter have exhibited. His other main weapon, the left hook, could prove even more dangerous than the straight right against a fast southpaw like Usyk. Fitness and cardio should not be a concern for "Bomber". Anyway, he has been forced to lose weight for this bout and – at 35 years old – this could weaken him.
