Tony Bellew eyes possible fight with Tyson Fury

  Tony Bellew eyes possible fight with Tyson Fury Tony Bellew’s record as a heavyweight is 1-0 after he defeated former world champion David Haye in his first fight in the weight class. Now he’s got his sights set on his next fight and he’s admitted that he would consider getting into the ring with another former world champion, Tyson Fury. Fury hasn’t fought since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to become the unified world heavyweight champion and has since had his boxing licence suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control. Fury looks set to make a return to the ring in the near future with Manuel Charr a likely opponent but Bellew says he too would consider fighting the undefeated heavyweight. In an interview with SkyBet, Bellew said: “Why wouldn’t I consider [fighting Fury]? He’s got to get that weight down a bit, 25 stone he is at the moment so he needs to trim a little bit. I can not bulk up any more than I have bulked up at the minute, I’ve had one too many Nando’s!” Bellew also said that he hopes to see Fury back fighting soon as the sport needs him and that any future champions need to defeat him in order to be considered that absolute best. “I only wish Tyson well, he is great for boxing. The heavyweight division needs people like Tyson Fury so I would love to see him back, if it’s not against me then I’m sure there will be many challengers out there who would like to face him because, realistically, he is the lineal Heavyweight Champion of the world. Regardless of belts, he is the man who beat the man, so I would like to see him back.

Fury is still suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control amid a UKAD investigation, blocking his proposed return to the ring. He has not competed since beating Klitschko in November 2015.

A loophole to obtain an Irish licence with the Boxing Union of Ireland has also been shut down, it has been confirmed.
