Following his sensational win over David Haye whereby an eleventh-round stoppage kicked open the door to the heavyweight scene, it remains to be seen what?s next for Tony Bellew.

Although Bellew is a reigning world cruiserweight champion, it remains to be seen whether the Liverpool fighter will shed the excess weight and return to box at cruiserweight or try and make a bigger impact on the world scene.

After the fight his promoter, Eddie Hearn, spoke about a world heavyweight title chance remarking,

‘We’ve got to go after a heavyweight world title for Bellew now. I am so pleased for him. He’s secured the future for his family and they can live a wonderful life.

‘He is everything you would want in a man, he has a big heart, never gives up, has a wonderful family and I am so happy for him.’


But who would be the ideal opponent for Bellew?

It was interesting that after the fight Bellew didn?t call out Anthony Joshua who was sat close to the ring, instead praising the reigning IBF champion for taking the heavyweight scene to a new level.

Of the others, Joseph Parker could be a candidate but the vibes coming out of the 02 Arena last night was that Deontay Wilder, which his crude but open style, could be the champion Bellew?s camp might go for.
