Usyk vs Witherspoon: Tony Bellew explains how Oleksandr Usyk can dominate… and how he may fall short

Tony Bellew considers his opponent by challenging Deontay Wilder, Oleksandr Usyk is world champion — but cautions he will not beat everyone in his new division.
Usyk as a heavyweight against Chazz Witherspoon live at Saturday night at 2am and, pumped out Bellew last year to protect his cruiserweight title.
Bellew believes Usyk can attain his goal of becoming world champion if he aims WBC ruler Deontay Wilder.
What exactly are Usyks strengths and weaknesses?
Tony Bellew stated:Being in there with him you notice right away that hes always doing something and allow you to think each step along the way. His footwork is unbelievable for such a guy, and it is his feet which get him into position for attacks.
Due to his weaknesses, I still think hes a little bit open and could be caught. Nobody has exploited that far in the pros, although Seeing his struggles, there was consistently a response from him once he got captured clean. His chin is up in the air occasionally and if that continues then it may get captured one time.
What did you fight with when you fought him?
Tony Bellew stated:Pinning him down was hard since, as Ive stated, his footwork is right on a different level. Id planned to get close and actually work over him, but any time that I tried to make a fight out of this, he was just too elusive. His feet will get him very far in this sport, and also how he feints and pops strikes is also remarkable.
How can Usyk be hurt?
Tony Bellew stated:The reply to this is simple, but implementing its another issue. You have got to strike him blank.
There are a couple events from the amateurs where hes trapped flush and he doesnt like it. Mentioning that shot is going to be challenging because hes such a defensive fighter, but I think there is a possibility he can move, if youre able to find the goal then. Doing this is a tricky task
When going to heavyweight, how is preparation distinct?
Tony Bellew stated:Its a lot easier and I think Usyk will enjoy every second of it. Ive fought at 175lbs and cruiserweight for the majority of my profession so making dieting and weight was something I did not appreciate. Heavyweight eliminates that problem instantly.
Do not get me wrong, you can not simply stuff your face, but eating the right foods as much as youd like is nice and it removes the strain of having to make fat. That was the greatest difference for me personally. The sparring becomes different as youre dealing with bigger men, but its a requirement if you want to get in there and do it real.
Out of Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, as well as Anthony Joshua, whos Usyk?
Tony Bellew stated:Wilder, and that is an easy answer. Dont get me wrong, if Wilder lands on him it is not likely to end well for Usyk, however it is possible to say that any heavyweight who Wilder lands.
I just think [Joshua and Fury] are too big for him. Fundamentally, hes a much better boxer than all of them, also I comprise Fury so, but hes just too little to compete for 12 rounds together. I believe the size of Fury and Joshua are a large benefit and that I dont think Usyk could overcome it.
Will Usyk win a world heavyweight title?
Tony Bellew stated:Yes. I think he would win that struggle by just being and doing what he does best , if he was to combat with Andy Ruiz tomorrow. There are just a few guys I dont see him winning against, but he is definitely the most skilled fighter in the division which will give him a chance. Watching his moves therell be fun and I want him the best. Hes an excellent fighter and I am sure he will succeed.
