WBC world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew wants a unification fight with WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk in the future, though admits it could be his final outing.

The hard-hitting Liverpudlian made the first defence of his crown at the weekend when he demolished BJ Flores in three rounds at the Echo Arena in his hometown.

Though Bellew has been linked to a potential fight with David Haye, he is also keen to unify the 200lb division, which would mean a meeting with WBA and IBF champion Denis Lebedev.
