Default Re: Thoughts on Bellew after last night. Is he ready for the elite?

Fights against guys who look to survive like at the weekend, they are all experience, but he needs a couple more against competitive guys who offer more offensively, because ithe big fights it won't all be one way traffic.

That said hatton was steamrollering opponents before tszyu and it did him no harm but he'd got a lot of fights in and he'd had more tough nights in the locker.

Think tony needs another year and some sterner tests just to prep him nicely for when the big one comes along.

He matched cleverly so he's definitely on the cusp IMO. Still looks fresh to me but a tad green.

I thought haye was green before mormeck to be honest, suppose sometimes you have to just make the leap.

The key at this stage is Simply to keep improving, he seems to be doing that.
