Sport Bookie: Bellew threatens to quit if he loses to Brudov
By Andrew Scott Thursday, 20 March 2014 07:58
Tony Bellew said that he could quit boxing if he loses to Valery Brudov on Saturday night when he makes his cruiserweight debut, and sport bookies can’t wait to see what will happen when this fight gets underway.
Bellew, who’s a favourite with sport bookies and pay per head sportsbooks, moves to 200lbs against the Russian after his bid to clinch the WBC light-heavyweight title ended in six rounds by Adonis Stevenson in Canada.
Bookmakers UK can see that the empty WBO cruiserweight title is up for grabs and Bellew knows that he can’t afford to make mistakes.
“It’s the be all or end all,” admitted Bellew. “It’s that big, if I can’t beat Valery Brudov then I’m not going to be a world champion and I just don’t think there’s much point in carrying on to be totally honest, so this is it for me.
“Make no mistake this is a tough fight, this guy has got more knockouts than I’ve had fights. He has got 28 KO’s, I’ve had 23 fights… 45 fights, he got to 30-0, not many people can say they got to 10-0, this guy got to 30-0.
“He’s tried, tested and proven, he’s solid, and the look in his eye says he’s coming to win, he’s not coming here for a pay day, to make up the numbers, and he is coming to win.
And pay per head sportsbooks also believe that Bellew is up for a very big challenge.
“He just said to me ‘god bless you’, I think he’s trying to tell me I’m going to need it.”
Sport bookies and price per head services saw that Bellew promised fans an explosive night and believes that he will prove to be the stronger man at cruiserweight.
“I’m looking forward to Saturday night, I can’t wait,” said Bellew. “It feels real every time I step on the scales and the scales say 200lbs. I know what I’m getting into, when you are in sparring with big guys you know what it is about.
“I’ve sparred with big guys that are a lot heavier than me, so it’s been real from day one, it was real the minute I left Quebec City.
“I think we will see excitement, I think we will see somebody who is not frightened to exchange, somebody who doesn’t feel like he’s got a vulnerability factor to him.”
