All four world cruiserweight belts will be on the line as Oleksandr Usyk steps into the ring at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night. Waiting in the opposite corner will be the British challenger Tony Bellew who steps back into this division after his heavyweight contests with David Haye.

How it Works
You can only take up this offer if you have yet to sign up with 888Sport and if that’s the case, you may start the process off by heading over from this link and completing registration. A set of brief online forms await and once sent back across a secure server, your new account should be validated and confirmed in just a few minutes.
Moving on, we now need some funds to cover the bets and when you arrive at the cashier, please keep the following points in mind.
- The minimum deposit is set at £10.00 so please add this amount or more.
- We suggest using either a debit or credit card as all eWallets are excluded at this point.
- Remember to input the Promo Code KO10 when asked to do so.
Keep those important points in mind and it’s now time to make the qualifying bet which will trigger all of the bonuses.
With funds ready to go, pick an event from the 888Sport sportsbook. Make sure that the odds in question are set at a minimum of 1/2 (1.50) and stake at least £10.00 on the outcome. Within 72 hours of that bet being settled, 888Sport will release 3 x free bet tokens worth £10.00 each and you will need to use those within 7 days before they expire.
In the meantime, you will quickly receive an additional £10.00 freebie which can be used for the Bellew v Usyk fight on Saturday November 10. This brings your total of bonuses up to £40.00 and it can be used on any available market quoted by 888Sport for this bout.
You may want to keep it simple and opt for the straight result bet for this fight: Oleksandr Usyk is, however, a hot favourite here and there isn’t too much value in his price of 2/15 from 888 but for those getting behind Tony Bellew, his win odds of 9/2 look far more interesting.
The draw completes the result betting at 28/1 and who knows, we’ve already seen a number of drawn bouts this year and this fight could add to that list.
Moving into the side markets, 888Sport have, within the Method of Victory bet, Usyk by KO or TKO available at 17/20 while Bellew by the same processes goes out to 6/1. Based on those numbers, the market for the Fight to NOT go the Distance could be interesting at 13/25.
Remember, those are just suggestions and it’s up to you to decide where to place your free bet. It can be used on any Usyk v Bellew market and as an extension to what is already a generous welcome bonus, this is a good way to get on board with 888Sport and look for a little extra value from Saturday’s big fight.
