But the Liverpool boxer believes his punch power will be decisive against the WBC-WBA-IBF-WBO champion, just as it was for Hagler against his fellow American Hearns in an unforgettable encounter to decide the undisputed world middleweight champion.
"There are openings - but listen, there are a lot more openings in me than there is him". One punch can change the course of a fight and, as I was saying, Bellew's got that in the locker.
Bellew 30-2-1 (20KO's) has certainly improved since finally evacuating his title hopes at Light Heavyweight, where he had contentiously lost to Nathan Cleverly - he avenged that loss at Cruiserweight - while being stopped by a dominant Adonis Stevenson in 2013. The inaugural victor of the World Boxing Super Series arrives in Manchester on Saturday as the holder of every belt at 200lbs, and although Coldwell is full of respect for the 2012 Olympic gold medallist, hours studying the man have alerted him to issues that he believes his fighter must exploit.
Every time you fight you take it seriously, but when you've had a few world title fights, it can get a little bit monotonous. He simply missed out the cutting phase, boiling down to the weight, he knows how to get the best out of himself in the cruiserweight division.
With retirement looming for the 35-year-old, Froch believes the former WBC champion will have pushed his body to the limit during his last camp with trainer David Coldwell. He's fought at 175lbs for most of his career and he's a very experienced fighter.
Dave Coldwell is no stranger to daunting challenges. The fight that he fought against me won't be good enough to beat Usyk. But Tony will be going into this fight with confidence, he riding high off his recent victories and he's going to feel invincible stepping into the ring.
Who else is on the Usyk-Bellew bill?
I wouldn't have said that it is going to be more than the victory in the Super Series but this is going to be a new stage. A body assault could be very useful in the early rounds. Tony has excelled in the underdog role on several occasions before this fight and it makes no difference to him whatsoever what people think his chances are.
