Tony Bellew has named the fighter who he believes is the “most overrated” in world boxing currently.
Recently the former Cruiserweight world champion claimed Daniel Dubois ‘spewed it’ against Oleksandr Usyk and Bellew coming to Liam Smith’s defence after his defeat to Chris Eubank Jr led to a heated exchange with Ohara Davies on X (formerly Twitter).
Speaking on Froch on Fighting, Bellew named Davies as the most overrated fighter and explained exactly why. He said,
He’s quit twice, I’ve seen him step up against Josh Taylor and he quit and he’s going on about how hw should be world champion. When he stepped up against Josh Taylor he got his a** absolutely handed to him on a plate and he spewed it, he watched the referee count to ten when he was on one knee.
What more can you say? A fighter goes down from a body shot, watches the referee count to ten then gets up and says he’s okay – what are they called in our world? I’ve been dropped on my face by Ovill McKenzie and got up at the count of four, been dropped flat on my back by Oleksandr Usyk and up at the count of seven.
I just believe in getting up and fighting no matter what shape you’re in.”
Well Davies didn’t take too kindly to the Liverpudlian’s opinion.
Tony Bellew wishes he was still fighting, that's why he's always trying to start some controversy, your time is done now old man, winner of vacant world titles, Eddie hearns Boot licker, enjoy retirement and let me enjoy being Mr overrated https://t.co/Ew3Thonrhz
