Haye v Bellew
#1
Sky Sports Box Office will show the eagerly-anticipated heavyweight fight between David Haye and Tony Bellew on March 4.

In one of the biggest fights of the year, the British rivals will finally meet at The O2 in London following an ongoing war of words.

Bellew confronted Haye again after defending his WBC cruiserweight title with a third-round knockout victory over BJ Flores in October, and they will share the ring in the Liverpudlian's first fight at heavyweight.

Haye, a former WBA heavyweight champion, took a four-year break from boxing and Bellew should provide 'The Hayemaker' with his toughest challenge since his comeback.

"The country is fed up of his constant yapping," said Haye. "Even in his home town of Liverpool, I would be stopped in the street by people begging me to spectacularly send him into retirement.

"Bellew is completely delusional if he thinks he can beat me. He still thinks he's on the set of Creed and there will be some kind of Rocky-style happy ending. But come March 4 at The O2 in London I will bring reality crashing down on him.

"I've earned my credentials the hard way inside the ring, not on film sets. There will be no second takes, no stunt men taking the blows and no flashing lights on the red carpet. The only lights Bellew will see are those of the spot lights shining down on him when he wakes up from his nap on the canvas."

'The Bomber' has fought twice in 2016, including his spectacular victory against Ilunga Makabu, which earned him the WBC title at Goodison Park in May.


"I've backed him into a corner, left him nowhere to go, and now I have what I want," said Bellew. "I'm not under any illusions, I know exactly what I am going up against, it's big risk, big reward.

"I cop him with my best punch, he's going to sleep. He cops me with his best punch, more than likely I am going to sleep too.

"I know what I am up against but the big factor for me is, I'm a very active fighter, I've had no breaks and I've got very little wear and tear on me. If it comes down to a question of heart and determination, I win hands down. If it comes down to one punch, it's a 50-50."

Both fighters will be ringside for Anthony Joshua's second IBF heavyweight title defence against Eric Molina in Manchester on December 10, also live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Bitter heavyweight rivals Tony Bellew and David Haye will meet again, live on Sky Sports Box Office, on December 17.

The pair go back to the O2, London, for a Sunday night spectacular after their memorable meeting back in March, when 'Bomber' shocked the boxing world with a TKO win.

Haye picked up an Achilles injury midway through the fight but, following a successful operation, the former two-weight world champion has revenge on his mind.

Haye should have retired after the first fight

I think he’s using the Achilles injury as a way of getting another big payday!
