Bellew delayed his retirement plans to challenge Usyk but the Ukrainian prevailed by an eighth-round knockout at the Manchester Arena to retain his WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO cruiserweight titles. The Briton responded: "He can give me that insane Ukrainian look, so I just gave him a insane Scouse one back". I gave it everything I've got, ' Bellew told Sky Sports minutes after Saturday's night's fight. Make sure you clap him - he deserves everything.
A courageous Bellew tried to get back to his feet as promoter Eddie Hearn watched on worryingly, but the fight was over and Usyk celebrated his stunning victory before taking the time out to check on Bellew's well-being. I have no excuses.
"He's the best opponent in my professional career", said Gassiev, while Bellew's trainer Dave Coldwell admitted the bout was enough to leave spectators wondering: "How on earth do you beat this guy?!" He explained: 'I tried to go for it. I don't even know what round it was. You'll just see by the appearance. I wish [him] greatness. However, Bellew's engine began to run empty and it was Usyk that was starting to show his class and why he is regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in world boxing. He's slick and strong.
"I haven't learned my lesson, he's exceptional". Anyone who fights him is in trouble.

"I walk away. I've been doing this for 20 years, after 20 years it's over", said Bellew, 35, who won the WBC cruiserweight title in 2016 at Goodison Park, home of his beloved Everton football club. 'This man played a massive part.
According to Usyk, Bellew is a unsafe opponent, and he's quite angry.
But for Bellew, there are no obvious reasons for him to continue his career. "Saturday was a reason to remember a great fighter and a great man". Appreciate him. He beat me fair and square. He didn't come in there to just pick up his pay cheque and just quit. 'Eddie Hearn stuck by me all the way. So, I made the promise this time. I never dreamed this would be possible. He will go down as a true great and is one of the best men I have ever met.
