Tony Bellew reacts to Oleksandr Usyk's 'arrogant' claim

Oleksandr Usyk and Tony Bellew Press Conference

With the date set, one fight we can now get ready for is Oleksandr Usyk when he faces Tony Bellew in Manchester on November 10.

The two cruiserweights had what Bellew called a 'little stare-down' first time during the Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin fight last weekend, where Usyk accused Bellew of being arrogant, and just a few days later the pair have met again for their launch press conference.

November 10 will be a night not to miss as Bellew challenges for Usyk's undisputed cruiserweight title, and the Brit wasn't going to let that 'arrogant' comment slide by.

And Bellew dismissed those claims, insisting it's the fact that he is going into this fight with the ultimate belief that he can beat Usyk.

Bellew said: "He (Usyk) passed a comment after Saturday's little stare-down, and the comment that he passed was that he thinks I'm arrogant.

"So he says that he believes that I'm arrogant, but the only thing is that it's not arrogance that he sees, but for the first time in his whole career he sees a man who is looking back at him and believes he can win and not a man that believes he is just going to lose.

"As great as those other fighters are that he has faced an beaten, not one of them goes in there with the heart and belief that they're going to beat him and that changes on November 10th.

"He's going to learn on November 10, I bring something different than everyone else and let's not forget I have the one thing that he doesn't have, and that's a punch that can switch lights out in the blink of an eye."

Tensions are already high between the pair and it's already building to be a must watch fight. The undisputed cruiserweight title will be on the line and Bellew will be looking to walk away victorious when the two step into the ring at Manchester Arena on November 10.

'The Bomber' is used to being up against the odds but this will likely prove his toughest challenge yet.
