Bellew told iFL TV after the fight: “I’m so relieved and happy.
“Perfect, perfect. It wasn’t a boring fight.

“He had the discipline and the mentality, even when Andy Ruiz was gone, to step back.
“You know what, I’m gonna say it now, I’m gonna say it.
“I don’t care what anyone says, I don’t give a s***.
“He’s the best heavyweight in the world again.
“Do you know why I say that? Because he’s shown a whole different dimension to his game tonight.
“Mentally matured to another level.
“He’s shown that, ‘You might hurt me, you might knock me down, but I’ve got a mentality and maturity that I can deal with it.
“What people don’t think he’s able to do, he’s done that tonight.”
