Haye: Bellew Won The Lottery in March - He Won't Win it Twice!

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE and Tony Bellew will be warned about their conduct ahead of their rematch on December 17 at the O2. 

British Boxing Board of Control officials are expected to contact both fighters to remind them of their responsibilities.

The pair’s rematch was finally confirmed yesterday after talks about the return meeting began in July.

Former world cruiserweight champion Bellew stopped Haye in the 11th round of their first meeting after the ex-heavyweight title holder suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon earlier in the bout.

But the build-up was marred by Haye punching the Liverpool fighter at a press conference and the pair exchanging vile taunts before the clash.

Haye’s comments were particularly nasty and the board fined him £25,000 while Bellew was issued with a warning.

Both are expected to be told to behave before the rematch or they could face losing their licences.

The pair’s first meeting will be at an announcement press conference and Bellew believes he will end Haye’s career by beating him again.

Bellew said: “I will have the exact same attitude I had going into the first fight - win at all costs. I will be victorious on December 17 and I will end David Haye's career. Another loss to me closes the curtain on the Hayemaker. This isn't personal anymore, it's strictly business. This is just another fight.”

Haye is delighted to get the rematch after undergoing rehabilitation on his injured Achilles as he looks to get his world title ambitions back on track following his third career defeat.

Haye said: “On March 4, the script was thrown out the window and the unpredictability of sport revealed itself in its most raw form.

“Without question ‘The Bomber’ showed great heart, grit and determination to weather the early storm. Credit to him, that he's willing to step back into the lion’s den and do it all over again.

“He somehow won the lottery in our first fight, but believe me, he won’t win the lottery twice.

“I’ve been training every day for over six months. I already feel fitter, stronger and more athletic than I did for our first showdown!

“On December 17, I will relish the opportunity to rewrite the ending of the Haye Bellew story.”

Haye doesn't even need to train. Just look after his leg and he should plow through this scouse twat.

[QUOTE=Kilrain;18103177]Bellew was blowing more than Haye throughout their first fight. He looked absolutely gassed after five (admittedly Haye was also starting to blow) and only got a lease of life when he saw that Haye was injured. But then, fighting…
