On Saturday, November 10, at the Manchester Arena, one of the most anticipated heavyweight races of the year will be held. Absolute world champion Alexander Usyk will defend all of the league's bands. Usik won the titles in the final of the World Boxing Super Series, defeating Murat Gassiyev at the points. Former World Champion WBC Tony Bellew will resist the Ukrainian.
The British won great popularity not after winning the championship zone, but after going to the super heavyweight, where he twice hit the former world champion in two weight classes of David Hay. Particularly the first race was bright – Bellew threw Hay on the ropes.
"I do not know yet what to do if victory is as easy as fighting David Haye"– podnachivaet rival Tony. But do not put a mustache in your mouth: "How will I defeat Bellew on Saturday? With love"
On Wednesday, it was held at the Manchester Football Museum open training Mustache and Bellew. Immediately, various British media made live broadcasts and one of the reporters, analyzing Alexander Usik's style with a smile, said his legs were so fast that we had to get out of the ring and kiss them grateful for the opportunity to watch the their work.
By the way, during the press conference, he said his word and T.is Bellew: "I'll catch a monster, I'll hit him in the face".
"I have to become the ultimate world heavyweight champion. Once I win the titles, I will thank everyone for joining, finishing my career and going home," and this is Alexander already for future plans.
After the fight with Bellew, Usyk plans to increase in the heavyweight category, but from this idea compatriots discourage their compatriots Vasily Lomcenko, Sergey Derevianenko and Yeveni Chitro
One day before the battle, a weighing ceremony took place.
Bellew was a little heavier than a mustache. The scales under the British showed 90.26 kg.

After that, the boxers looked at each other's eyes. By the way, Usik appeared to the public with a Manchester City scarf. As Ukrainian promoter Alexander Krasyuk said later, Usyk claims friend friend of "residents" Alexander Zinchenko. The footballer will personally watch the fight with Bella.
