Tony Bellew claims Possible Showdown with David Haye is not far away

In an interview given to Sky Sports, WBC Cruiserweight Champion Tony Bellew has claimed that a fight between him and David Haye is already on the cards.

The boxer further claimed that discussions have already begun regarding the fight between the two camps.

This statement from Bellew came after he won the WBC Cruiserweight title on May 29th. The boxer was fighting Ilunga Makabu at Goodison Park in Liverpool.

Makabu started the bout strongly as he knocked down Bellew in the first round and hopes of Bellew winning the title looking to be far fetched at that point.

However, after coming into his stride in the third, the English boxer enjoyed the best moment of his career as he knocked out Ilunga Makabu.

After winning the fight, Bellew unexpectedly turned towards Haye as he asked the Londoner to stop fighting “clowns”.

“Come back down to your natural weight and fight a real cruiserweight, because you have had long enough fighting clowns on that joke channel,’ yelled the Liverpool-born boxer.

“We are in talks. The two of us are speaking at the moment and we’ll see where it goes but I want to fight the ‘Haye-faker’,” Bellew told Sky Sports News HQ.

Just hours after Bellew challenged him Haye responded by posting a video on his Instagram account.

The boxer claimed that he will happily fight the cruiserweight Champion and will “smash him to bits”.

However, as stated by Haye, that will happen after he first knocks out Shannon Briggs in his upcoming fight, a fight that will interest those looking to place a bet with the bookmakers such as Paddy Power.

He further claimed that he is knocking out all the people who are talking too much, and Bellew should get ready to be on that list.

Breazeale warns Joshua: “I’m beating you up real bad”

In an enthralling interview given to Sky Sports’ “The Gloves are Off”, American boxer Dominic Breazeale has warned Anthony Joshua that he will get a taste of his own medicine when the pair meet on June 25.

The American further reiterated his stance as he claimed that he is going to stun the world by knocking out the world heavyweight Champion.

Giving us a glimpse of his gameplan, Breazeale told Joshua that he will take him to “uncharted territory” in the 6th and 7th rounds of their fight.

Afterward, as stated by the American, he plans to knock out Joshua to strip him of his title.

In addition to talking about the future, Breazeale also stirred controversy as he claimed that Joshua only won the Olympic Gold Medal because he enjoyed the favour of hometown judges.

Breazeale said on a captivating The Gloves Are Off: “[Roberto] Cammarelle the Italian, he won that gold medal. Fighting in your backyard leaving things up to the judges, you’re going to get that nod.”

“That’s why I don’t plan on letting that fight on June 25 go to the judges. I do not believe Anthony Joshua is a gold medallist. Cammarelle won that fight.”

Providing his analysis on other British fighters, Breazeale claimed that he would beat Tyson fury with “one hand tied behind his back”.

Coming into this fight, the Californian has 17 professional wins to his name.

However, most of those wins came against anonymous fighters, a fact, which largely understates the capbilities of the 30-year old.

Nevertheless, despite all his talk before the game, it would be a major upset if Breazeale is able to defeat, let alone KO, Joshua on the 25th of June at the O2.

Liam Smith wants Canelo Alvarez after retaining WBO Light-Middleweight title

After taking just two rounds to retain his WBO Light-Middleweight title by defeating Predrag Radosevic in Liverpool, Liam Smith now wants a fight with Mexican Canelo Alvarez.

According to reports, his camp has already started efforts to resume talks with the Alvarez camp to decide on the date of the fight.

Smith was brilliant in Liverpool on Sunday in front of the jam-packed Echo arena in Liverpool.

After stalking his opponent with some brash words in the first round, Smith derailed Radosevic halfway through the second round with a potent left hook.

The Montenegrin was on his knees straight away as he failed to beat the count of the referee.

As a result, Smith has now retained his title for a second successive time.

Before his main event showdown with the Montenegrin, Smith saw three of his brothers reign victorious in their respective fights last Sunday.

Completing a perfect week for his fans and family, the English boxer left nothing behind to retain his title.

As a result of this victory, the unbeaten record of Smith has now extended to 24 fights.

Also, as he thwarted Radosevic with a knockout, the all-time knockout count of the Englishman went to 13.

However, despite his latest victory, the English public is eager to see Smith in action against Canelo Alvarez.

Alvarez knocked out British fan favourite Amir Khan last month which further adds to the clamour for a Smith/Alvarez match up.

And now with Smith raring up to face the Mexican, the English fans will want him to take revenge.
