TONY BELLEW feels his opponent on Saturday night, Mateusz Masternak, is better than most of the current cruiserweight world champions but feels unbeaten contender Aleksandr Usyk is the top dog.

The Liverpudlian faces the former European champion ahead of a potential world title shot and is well aware of the danger the Pole brings.

“Masternak is a very good fighter, it will take the absolute best of me to win this fight but I believe I’ve got that in my locker,” he told Boxing News. We’ve done 12 weeks of absolute hard graft. I’m ready to do whatever in there whether I have to box him or go to war, I’m ready to go to the well.
