Tony Bellew is back with his latest rant. The former cruiserweight champion wants a heavyweight belt added to his trophy cabinet. He is after a fight against the current WBO heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker.

The Liverpudlian has been doing a lot of talking to get himself into another big heavyweight bout. He has called out Parker earlier, but the Kiwi has to fight mandatory challenger Hughie Fury next. Still, Bellew can’t stop talking about the WBO champion.

“The big question is, can I beat Joseph Parker? I think I can. He thinks I can’t and that’s what will make people tune in.  I am more experienced, I have fought at a much higher level than he has but at the same time, make no mistake, the guy is 17-and-a-half stone. I am 16-and-a-half stone and I should be 14-and-a-half stone. He is a big dude – a proper heavyweight,” Bellew said.

 ‘The Bomber’ believes he is definitely worthy of a big title fight. Especially since in his last fight he achieved something Wladimir Klitschko couldn’t do: stop David Haye.
 “I have just beaten the former heavyweight champion of the world and I stopped him. I did something Wladimir Klitschko couldn’t do and I know people will make the most of his injury. But if it had gone the way he was saying; he would beat me in two rounds, he would leave me in a coma, the kids would have to visit me in hospital – they were his words not mine,” Bellew told in an interview with Chronicle Live.


Bellew know’s he might not be a natural heavyweight. He is sure of himself that what he lacks in size he makes up in skill.

“I was just happy to win and I want to see how far I can go. Can I win the World heavyweight championship? I don’t know. But I am willing to take the risk and have a go at doing it. Am I big enough? No, not really. Am I good enough? Possibly,” explained Bellew.
