Anthony Joshua reveals how Tony Bellew can defeat Oleksandr Usyk

Usyk is unbeaten and undisputed cruiserweight world champion

Usyk is like a ideal boxer, so I hope Bellew is working on his counter punching as well, because that's the way to knock him out.

The Canaries announced that an evening with Merseyside slugger Tony Bellew is scheduled for Friday, February 22, with commercial manager Phil Jones set to release ticket details and further information in the coming weeks.

Bellew has a good win over Mateusz Masternak, while lifting the WBC Cruiserweight title when his dream night at Goodison Park was capped by a famous 3 round knockout of Ilunga Makabu.

The one thing you need to know with Tony Bellew is he doesn't look great aesthetically, but somehow, he finds a way to win. I'll get him. He will feel something that he's never felt.

I fought Audley Harrison who was an Olympic gold medallist, he was a southpaw, so I brought in Tony Thompson a very experienced heavyweight campaigner who had given Vladimir Klitschko and David Price nightmares.

For fans of the divisive but ever popular Tony Bellew this is anticipated as if it were the fight of the year. But I will get to him.

Bellew climbed up a division to inflict stunning knockouts on Haye, but it remains to be seen whether he can repeat this feat against the supremely talented Usyk, a recent victor of the World Boxing Super Series.

I don't think there will be an issue with Bellew coming down to the cruiserweight category after going up around a stone in weight against myself a year ago, he didn't bulk up and do a lot of bodybuilding. He has a willing desire to want and need to please, and that's going to be his undoing on November 10. Lomachenko probably punches harder than Usyk [for his weight] so he doesn't have to be as exciting as Usyk and doesn't have to take as many risks. He has a couple of extra attributes that make the world of difference.

I rate Bellew highly, I rate all British boxers highly and they're all stepping up to the plate.

Bellew has then got that punch, and if he lands that left hook, Usyk will be out cold.

Stevenson was the last fighter to pull off a victory over Bellew, when he stopped him in six rounds back in 2013 at 175-pounds. The inaugural victor of the World Boxing Super Series arrives in Manchester on Saturday as the holder of every belt at 200lbs, and although Coldwell is full of respect for the 2012 Olympic gold medallist, hours studying the man have alerted him to issues that he believes his fighter must exploit.
