British boxing legend Tony Bellew tuned into his inner ”Eddie Hearn” in our latest chat.

Ahead of the highly anticipated ”Fury vs Usyk” card this Saturday, Bellew suggested that Anfield – The iconic home to Liverpool FC, will be too small for a potential ‘’Conor McGregor vs Paddy Pimblett’’ match.

He also proclaims how big the event will be for the rising Liverpudlian MMA Star Paddy ”the baddy” Pimblett.

He also vows to go to Prison for Mike Tyson if Jake Paul hurts him on July 20th in their upcoming fight.

‘Speaking to BoyleSports – who provide the latest boxing betting, Bellew said: 

  • Anfield Stadium in Liverpool is not big enough for ‘’Conor McGregor vs Paddy Pimblett’’
  • I’ll go to prison for Mike Tyson if Jake Paul hurts him!

Anfield is not big enough for Conor McGregor and Paddy Pimblett

Conor vs Paddy would be astronomical. Anfield would not be big enough. It would have to be Croke Park. It would be great for Paddy, it would be life changing for him.. It would be great for him and great for the city of Liverpool. It would be great for mixed martial arts in this country. 

I’ll go to prison for Mike Tyson if Jake Paul hurts him!

Mike is probably getting between 20-50 million for this fight, I’m not going to lie, I’d do it. Everyone has got a price. But if Jake Paul hurts Mike Tyson it would absolutely kill me. If he hurt Mike Tyson and I then I run into Jake Paul, I’d chin him, quite happily. I would even spend a couple weeks in the big house for that. 

It’s a sad, sad day. It’s not a professional contest really because only women fight two minute rounds, men do not fight two minutes. But Jake Paul is so f*****g pig headed, he wants it to go on Mike Tyson’s record. Hopefully Mike chins him and puts him to sleep in six or seven seconds. The age Tyson is at, he could be Jake Paul’s grandfather, so it’s sad really. It should have been left as an exhibition, the money would not have changed, why is Jake Paul fighting to have it on Mike Tyson’s record the absolute p***k. But that’s who he is, he’s after clout and fame. I just hope Mike has that one punch left in him. He will never lose that punch, he’s lost the snap and sharpness of it, but if he turns a right hand over and hits Jake Paul on the chin, the boy is going to sleep. But at 58 years old it’s f*****g frightening, this is show business, this really isn’t boxing. 

I don’t think Netflix cares about Mike’s health, they generated 25 billion last year. Netflix doesn’t give a s**t about Mike Tyson. They don’t give a monkey’s ass about Mike. No one cares and the saddest part is, Mike knows that – he’s been there, done it and got the T-shirt. 

I love Mike Tyson. I met him and he gave me the best advice, I had just won the Commonwealth title, I sat down and he signed my belt. He was about to do a dinner show and I said to him ‘what advice have you got for me’ and he gave me all sorts of advice, but the most important thing he said to me is ‘stay away from hoes and cocaine’. I said to him ‘I’ve got a lunatic wife and a couple kids, so that’s well off the agenda’.
