0:50 Bellew is on the brink of history when he faces Usyk
The outspoken figure, nicknamed "The Bomber" due to his incredible punching power, faces the toughest test of his professional career against Usyk, who is widely considered one of the best pound-for-pound fighters anywhere on the planet thanks to his relentless style and ruthless aggression inside the ring.
Bellew can become the undisputed cruiserweight champion when he challenges the unbeaten Usyk for all the division's major titles at Manchester Arena on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
"From a supporter's perspective it's always going to be entertaining because I really like rooting for Bellew", he told Sky Sports.
"Oleksandr Usyk throws with much more variety but people can only punch you if you are standing still with your hands up around your head like Murat Gassiev did [in July, when Usyk won a unanimous decision to unify the world cruiserweight titles]".
"If I can fight for all four belts, I would like it".
And Stevenson returns next month in a mandatory defense against Usyk's countryman and Olympic team member, Oleksandr Gvozdyk, on December 1 in a Showtime televised fight from Canada.
After that loss, Bellew moved up to cruiserweight and reinvented his entire career - eventually winning the WBC world title at cruiserweight. But I will get to him. He is a good boxer, had good movement and he can put pressure on.
As it has transpired, the opportunity to make a mark on Usyk was too good to turn down - but does he have a realistic chance of beating him? One punch can change the course of a fight and, as I was saying, Bellew's got that in the locker.
But that, I think, is sometimes the right time - is to say that I'm not on the down slide, a bit like [Carl] Froch.
The 31-year-old is no spring chicken in age terms but he remains lightly raced as a pro with just 15 fights to his name so far, which makes him a relative novice without the head guard. If he doesn't and stays outside to box Usyk, it's not good. He is a southpaw and like me, he can box.
"Usyk has the edge".
Bellew, who is a lifelong and passionate Everton fan and knocked out Ilunga Makabu at Goodison Park in 2016, said: "I will find a way to defeat the monster". Book it online here.
