The Liverpool fighter takes on undisputed champion Oleksandr Usyk before hanging up his gloves.

Bellew, 35, will take his earnings to around £15m for his last three fights after back-to-back wins over David Haye at heavyweight.

The clash with the unbeaten Ukrainian tonight will generate around £15m thanks to pay-per-view sales and the gate at the venue.

And Bellew has warned Usyk he has to excite tonight if he wants to land an even bigger money-spinner with Anthony Joshua at heavyweight next year.

“He does not get to Anthony Joshua by coming here and scraping past me”

He said: “He cannot afford to come to England and just run away with a boring points win. He has to come here and make a statement.

“He does not get to Anthony Joshua by coming here and scraping past me. He has to beat Tony Bellew up. He has to look electric and by looking electric he has to get into the firefight – and that is what I wish for.”

Tonight’s main event is expected to kick off from 10pm following a packed undercard.
