Tony Bellew calls Oleksandr Usyk greatest man he's shared a ring with

Brutal Oleksandr Usyk Spectacularly Knocks Out Tony Bellew At Manchester Arena 'Tony Bellew died tonight': Brilliant Oleksandr Usyk defends crown, stops Bellew in the 8th

Oleksandr Usyk is a great, great champion and I lost to one of the pound-for-pound bests that's every done it. 'I fought the very, very best.

The Briton, a former world cruiserweight champion who moved up to heavyweight and twice beat compatriot and former world champion David Haye, paid an emotional tribute to his southpaw rival.

And with his victory, Usyk retained his IBF, WBO, WBA and WBC cruiserweight titles, making it 16-0.

"I was trying to control myself in the first rounds, to control my boxing rather than just fighting", Usyk said. "And one day I believe that will be a huge fight and it could be the back end of 2019".

"If I'm being honest I got exhausted for the first time in my career". Usyk has done what those all-time greats and many more have not - and which is more, he only needed 15 fights to achieve it after coming out on top of the pile in a World Boxing Super Series full of high-calibre opponents.

"I tried to get him, but I didn't even know which round it was". He's fantastic. 'He beat me fair and square. He's brilliant, I have no bad words to say about Oleksandr, I only wish him well.

"It is my final walk away - I have been doing this for 20 years, and now it is over".

The Ukrainian, the first man since Evander Holyfield to unify all four major titles in the cruiserweight division, started slowly with Bellew finding success early.

Bellew (30-3-1, 20KOs) waxed lyrical about a number of topics at his closing address to the media, thanking his family as well as promoter Eddie Hearn and trainer Dave Coldwell for rejuvenating his career. I never dreamed this would be possible. Trust me, when I turn up Saturday, you will not see the nice man you've just seen on that stage.

"I sit here as a loser and I feel heartbroken but I've won in life".

"I think I'm a little bit mad", Usyk told iFL TV when it was put to him that he might compare to "crazy men" Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. When I left school - or, rather, when I was expelled from school for hitting a kid who had disrespected a teacher - I had nothing, with nowhere to go.
