November 10 is the likely date of the boxing event between British Tony Bellew and Ukraine's universal heavyweight champion of the world Oleksandr Usyk, the winner of WBSS tournament

Bellew's promoter Eddie Hearn told that to IFL TV; he specified that the parties have been negotiating about the details of the fight. 

If the fight takes place, it will become Usyk's debut in the super heavyweight division.

Goodison Park in Liverpool is the possible venue of the fight.  

Previously, Usyk assumed the fight could be held in December. Bellew added that the bout would be the last one in his professional career. 'I'm a far bigger puncher than Murat Gassiev, I only need one – I’ve showed that over the last few years. If it’s solely down to me, it’s happening. I want to see it happen and I want it before the end of the year. And if it is Usyk, it’ll be my last fight ever. I say that because I know how damaging the fight is going to be,' the British said.

As for Usyk, he said he would like to hold this bout in Ukraine. 'However, it's not my decision to make', he noted.
