Tony Bellew predicts this weekend’s big fight in a bout that will see two of the most skilled boxers in the world go at it.

Every man and his dog interested in boxing will be watching this weekend’s fight.

It’s one for the purists, sure, but the fact it is also been shown on ESPN in the US means a lot of folks who usually would not watch boxing will be getting a chance to tune in too.

And what a time to become a boxing fan if you are not already one. 2017 has been a stellar year for the sport with 2018 looking like it will be even bigger.

This fight tomorrow night is possibly the best example of the sweet science that a new fan could hope to see.

Fighters the world over have been giving their two cents on who they think will win this weekend’s big fight and one man known well on both sides of the pond for both his boxing and acting exploits, Tony Bellew, has been the latest to chime in.

Speaking to gambling company Betsafe, Bellew said:

“There’s only one winner for me, thats Lomachenko. I feel like it’s going to be how long can Rigondeaux keep him at bay. Rigondeaux will cause Lomachenko problems but if Lomachenko can box smart and bide his time then he’ll come away with the win.”

Do you agree with “The Bomber”? Bookmakers appear to be doing so at the moment – although it’s a fight that could really go either way.
