I'm a huge underdog and no one expects anything from me.

Oleksandr Usyk has warned Tony Bellew his talk will count for little if he does not deliver in the ring on Saturday.

Were you about to retire before Usyk came up?

Usyk (pictured) is a fantastic champion and a brilliant, brilliant fighter and I'm a keen admirer of his work but I'll find a way - I always do.

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.

Usyk has looked off colour in some of his previous wins, but given the stage this fight has been given and the big fights around the corner under the Matchroom Boxing banner, Usyk is not going to take this one lightly at all. This fight is all about what it can do for me and my legacy.

"There are openings - but listen, there are a lot more openings in me than there is him".

"On reflection it's been a tough year but that's boxing, sometimes you don't get the breaks and it's a bit of a waiting game". My image has changed - and people have realised I'm a businessman.

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 previous year, he didn't bulk up and do a lot of bodybuilding.

Whilst the odds are stacked against Bellew, he is adamant he can pull off the upset and take home the titles.

I've done it the proper way.

Will you become a trainer if this is indeed your last fight?

"I really want him to win, so my passion is with him, regardless". "The Manchester crowd last time out was fantastic and obviously Anthony Crolla is fighting on the bill, I'd still love that rematch down the line but first and foremost Scotty has my full attention". I'm not oblivious to the fact I'm coming to the back end of my career, but there's still life in me yet.

For fans of the divisive but ever popular Tony Bellew this is anticipated as if it were the fight of the year.
