It's all happening in British boxing at the moment.

Not only has David Haye announced, again, that he is retiring from the sport, but Tyson Fury is fighting in the heavyweight division once more.

Bellew knows all about Haye, having beaten him twice, with the second encounter turning out to be Haye's final fight. And with Fury now returning to the ring, boxing fans want to see the next big British showdown.

Writing in his column on, Bellew has had his say on Fury's return to boxing, and it's fair to say that he hasn't held back.

"As for Tyson Fury on Saturday, it wasn’t a fight was it? Let’s be honest. It’s just a circus.

"But listen, he’s entitled to one of them for his first one back, I’m not going to lie. Your first one back after a few years, you kind of give him one them. It’s all about for me who he takes on after this.

"He has to fight someone now who’s ranked. What I’m saying is he has to fight someone who we know. He has to fight a Robert Helenius maybe, someone like Manuel Charr. He has to fight someone we know.

"One thing I’ll say is I’m happy he’s back. It’s good for boxing that Tyson Fury is back in the heavyweight division. It just makes boxing better. He’s a mouth, he talks, he can actually fight."

Having seen his return to boxing after some time off, not many fans were too impressed with the manner of Fury's easy victory, and it seems like Bellew is ready to make his move against him.

Tyson Fury v Sefer Seferi - Heavyweight Fight

"...I’ve seen him against Steve Cunningham in New York and if Steve Cunningham can put a prime Tyson Fury flat on his back, then make no mistake I can knock him clean out."

Bellew's assessment didn't stop there, as he went on to slate the greatest moment in Fury's career, his win over Wladimir Klitschko.

"Let’s take away the farcical victory over Wladimir Klitschko. Neither of them threw punches, they danced around like it was a dancing contest.

"I know the Tyson Fury in Dusseldorf, that’s a very hard night for me and I’d take an awful lot of stick. But if I fight the Tyson Fury that fought Sefer Seferi the other night, then I’d knock him out and it would be pretty quick as well. Because I punch harder than him, there’s no two ways about it."

No holding back from Bellew, but can he really step up and take down Fury? Only time will tell if he gets the fight that he's after.
