In an interview with SkyBet, Bellew said:

“Why wouldn’t I consider [fighting Fury]? He’s got to get that weight down a bit, 25 stone he is at the moment so he needs to trim a little bit. I can not bulk up any more than I have bulked up at the minute, I’ve had one too many Nando’s!”

Bellew also said that he hopes to see Fury back fighting soon as the sport needs him and that any future champions need to defeat him in order to be considered that absolute best.

“I only wish Tyson well, he is great for boxing. The heavyweight division needs people like Tyson Fury so I would love to see him back, if it’s not against me then I’m sure there will be many challengers out there who would like to face him because, realistically, he is the lineal Heavyweight Champion of the world. Regardless of belts, he is the man who beat the man, so I would like to see him back.”
