FORMER world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew has confirmed his retirement from boxing.

The 35-year-old said on November 10 that he would not fight anymore, immediately after his eighth-round knock-out defeat by Oleksandr Usyk as he failed in his bid to unify the division.

Bellew did not go back on his promise as he posted a video on social media on Thursday to officially announce that he was hanging up his gloves.
