This should be  an epic Boxer vs puncher showdown for the undisputed Cruiserweight championship of the world.

Usyk is a truly great  suothpaw boxer with an incredible Amateur record. he has also proved his pedigree as a pro by winning the super series, collecting all the 4 credible belts along the way.

He also owns the Ring magazine belt, which has the most prestige,  it is a good indicator of the best in the division.

Bellew is still the WBC's 'emeritus' cruiserweight champion. Due to the fact that he moved up to Heavy weight to fight David Haye.
He is the underdog in most of his title fights.  Against Ilunga Makabu after being floored in the first round Bellew  came back and knocked Makabu out.

Makabu was undefeated in 19 fights up to that point. He was favourite to beat Bellew and had a 90% knock out record but the self proclaimed "fat lad from Liverpool" had other ideas.

In my opinion the biggest downfall of boxing is the multiple World champions scenario. Up to 4 world champion's in one division.  Unless you are undisputed. you cant say you are a world champion. Although obviously world class all they are is the individual governing bodies champion.

So to watch a genuine world title fight for all the marbles is fantastic. For the boxing purist this would eclipse what AJ has achieved so far. Even AJ is not an undisputed Champion until he has the WBC belt .

Finally,  who do I think will win. Logic dictates that Usyk should win as Bellew wont out box him. However I think if  Tony switches angles varies attack from head to body and cuts off the ring rather than chases Usyk around  he may get in the Left hook and that is a game changer.

I could be wrong but I think Bellew may switch to Southpaw at some point  during the fight.
