TONY BELLEW ended his boxing career with no regrets and now wants to fade into obscurity after defeat to undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Bellew had the opportunity to become the first Briton to simultaneously clinch all four major world titles in a weight class on his career swansong at a raucous Manchester Arena.

Despite being a considerable underdog with the bookmakers, the 35-year-old made an encouraging start against a fighter widely regarded as among the finest in any division on the planet.
