Oleksandr Usyk can be a “serious threat” at heavyweight, if he moves up a division after his knockout win over Tony Bellew, says Sky Sports expert Carl Froch.

The Ukrainian retained his WBC, IBF, WBA and WBO cruiserweight titles as he overcame a determined early effort from Bellew to force the stoppage with a big left hand in the eighth round at Manchester Arena.

A step up to the top division could be next for Usyk, where he would challenge the likes of unified champion Anthony Joshua and WBC title-holder Deontay Wilder.
