This weekend Liverpool’s Tony Bellew will attempt to do the impossible and take down undefeated, undisputed, pound for pound rated cruiserweight kingpin Oleksandr Usyk.
While Usyk isn’t exactly a one punch knockout artist he possesses enough skills on his day to bamboozle any top tier boxer near his weight class.
Coming into the fight as the undisputed cruiserweight world champion and recent winner of the World Boxing Super Series, he’ll be a hard man to beat.
But Bellew has had a history in his career of upsetting the odds and by watching this video, you’ll understand why not as many people are writing him off this weekend as they were before both David Haye fights:

As you can see, people still love an underdog in boxing.
Usyk however is a formidable opponent who won’t let any hype or promotion distract him from the job at hand.
A man who truly enjoys expressing himself the best way he knows how – with his fists in a boxing ring.
That said, he’ll have to throw the kitchen sink at Bellew this weekend.
