Bellew is thinking about a comeback. But there is an insurmountable obstacle


Former world heavyweight champion Tony Bellew is considering returning to the ring in order to “punish” YouTuber-boxer Jake Paul – and not just punish, but also “raise” an impressive amount of the fee for the fight with the American celebrity of neighbors and, in part, boxing .

He says he might consider such a fight offer if he gets a “meaningful fight” for “big money”, but he doubts any promoter or TV channel would be willing to shell out that kind of money.

The Briton last competed in 2018, losing by knockout to Oleksandr Usyk. The Ukrainian then just declassed Murat Gassiev in the Super Series final, became the absolute champion of the cruiserweight, and was a very attractive option for Bellew.

“I told my Mrs. ‘I need to have this fight’ [против Пола]said the veteran
Sporting News. “And she’s like, ‘You said it was over.’”

“I’m like: “Well, one more time!” She: “No, I will not tolerate this. You promised that” everything. “I let you go to that fight after Hei, because you gave me your word that this would be the finish line, and I agreed. I don’t understand – we have there is everything you need, we are happy, secure, everything is fine. What the hell are you doing this again?” Tony conveyed the content of clearly not cute conversations with his life partner.

Earlier, Bellew told how he almost lost his job because of Usyk.
