TONY BELLEW is desperate to fight Tyson Fury, promising to “knock the big man out”.
Fury made his big boxing comeback on Saturday night in Manchester – but it proved to be a damp squib as opponent Sefer Seferi pulled himself out after four rounds.

It was a complete mismatch from the start, with more fighting going on in the crowd when a brawl erupted than in the ring.
As the result was announced boos rang out from the Manchester crowd – most for Seferi for chucking in the towel, but boxing purists will have wished they hadn’t have bothered by tickets.
Fury insists he will win a world title by the end of 2018, but clearly he needs to be tested much more than by a 39-year-old Macedonian journeyman.
Bellew tweeted that he would “knock the big man out” after watching his comeback, with promoter Frank Warren claiming it is a fight he would like to make.

And this morning speaking on talkSPORT, Bellew once again re-iterated his belief that he would beat the Gypsy King.
He said: “I just don’t believe he could beat me.
