Bellew gave his two cents on YouTubers entering the world of boxing in an interview last year.
“It’s wrong what they’re doing to the sport by claiming they are these fighters," Bellew told the BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I’m okay with you making a few quid, this is all good when they’re all making a few quid and everyone’s making some money.
“But understand, someone’s gonna get hurt doing this and then it’s gonna come back on boxing.
“So you need to take it seriously, boxing is a professional, dangerous, brutal business.

Bellew continued: “Do not mess about and try and think this is showbusiness, it’s cameras, it’s lights, fun and games.
“It ain’t nothing funny about being in the ring with another man who wants to take your head off your neck.
“I’ve been there, I’ve done it. Believe you me, someone will get hurt in one of these fights and that’s when it’ll all come raining down.
“That’s when boxing will be called a joke of a sport, ‘This is a disgrace, this is wrong.’ Just stop it now.”
