Pair look set to trade blows in the boxing ring following the recent success of Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather
UFC superstar Michael Bisping admits he’d love to step into the boxing ring with Tony Bellew.
Talk of a fight between the pair has sped up in recent weeks following a war of words on Twitter in August.
Conor McGregor showed there’s plenty of money to be made by leaving the Octagon when he went toe-to-toe with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
And Bisping now wants to be the next fighter to make the change for a one-off battle.
Heavyweight ace Bellew previously claimed he’d be happy to fight with MMA rules.
But Bisping believes that wouldn’t even be a contest and is more than happy to step into Bellew’s world.
He told the Daily Mail: “B******s to that, I’ll step into a boxing ring with him.
“I don’t want to fight Tony Bellew in a cage, that would be too easy. Plus boxers get paid more money so I’m more than happy to box Tony Bellew, I’ll step into his backyard.

“People will say I’m trying to copy Conor McGregor. Jesus Christ, who doesn’t want to copy that £100million?
“If Tony wants to do it, let me get Georges St-Pierre out of the way and if he’s serious about it, which it sounds like he is, then I’m serious about it, 100 per cent.
“I mean I’ve got no problem. I mean, Tony’s got a big mouth on him and I’d love to shut it. I know I can compete with him. I’ve got good boxing myself. It’s a different style but yet, I’d love that challenge.”
