Bellew, a former WBC cruiserweight champion and current emeritus cruiserweight champion of the same governing body, drops back down to cruiserweight after two fights against David Haye at heavyweight.
"I had the most hard year in my life, now I want to relax and spend time with my family and after that, I will think about the future", Usyk said.
Bellew had all the fundamentals, decent power but most importantly an insatiable appetite to improve and squeeze every last ounce out of himself.
Bellew on the other hand, who previously held the WBC title earlier in his career by defeating Ilunga Makabu at Goodison Park, announced his retirement shortly after the defeat to Usyk. "Even winning (against Usyk) wouldn't have touched the sides". "He definitely needs to fight Anthony Joshua", said the Ukrainian's promoter Alex Krassyuk.

And while Bellew may be walking away from the sport, that spark is still there for one more dance in the squared circle and promises a nasty and awful man will stand across from Usyk on Saturday night. Don't boo him, ' demanded Bellew. I have nothing but respect for him.
Bellew was knocked out in the eighth round after a bright start ended in heartbreak for the Merseyside man. Only the very best, and the very biggest, will find a way to beat him.
But there was to be no fairytale finish for the fearless Bellew, who was put down with a crisp right jab, left hook combination before referee Terry O'Connor waved the count two minutes into the eighth round.
He was joking of course, and we will miss Bellew's wit as well as fighting spirit.
He broke a tie with Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton. "That field position, we didn't take advantage of", Gase said. As mentioned above, the Dolphins will be on a bye this week as their next game will be against the Colts on November 25.
