🚨 Tony Bellew names his ‘greatest ever fighter’ on anniversary of historic clash

Posted by

Tony Bellew like many others is a huge Roy Jones Jr. fan.

On March 1, 2003 the American made the step up to the heavyweight division against John Ruiz who he easily dominated to capture a piece of the world championship (WBA).

That win made him a 4 weight world champion but after that he was never the same.

Shedding the pounds and stepping back down to light-heavyweight proved disastrous and he was brutally knocked out by Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson in 2004.

Despite the loses Bellew still believes he is the greatest of all-time.

Posting on X formerly Twitter he posted:

‘People will never understand why he’s the greatest of all time! Had he retired after this fight it wouldn’t even be a question! I don’t really care about what happened after this! Going back down from HW was a disaster! This is my 🐐 👏👏’
