Ex-Champion Tony Bellew Throws Down the Gauntlet to WBC Champion Lukasz Ruzhansky

Tony Bellew, a former world champion, has thrown down the gauntlet to current WBC bridgeweight champion, Lukasz Ruzhansky, seeking a fight. Bellew, the 40-year-old British boxer who last stepped in the ring in 2018, made his challenge public via his social media account.

"I think you're in need of a fight that goes past 4 rounds. I’m bored and don’t see anything that suggests you can do it against me! What do you think?" wrote Bellew in his message to Ruzhansky.

Тони Белью: В реванше с Усиком Джошуа будет себя чувствовать, будто он  против всего мира - iSport.uaBellew, renowned for his aggressive style and potent punch, hasn't boxed since November 2018, when he was defeated by Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk in an early-round knockout. Despite the extended hiatus, he views himself as ready for another face-off in the ring.

Ruzhansky, as of now, has yet to respond to Bellew's challenge.
