WBA, IBO, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is backing Matchroom stablemate Tony Bellew to come out on top on December 17th, when he faces two division beltholder David Haye in a rematch from the O2 Arena in London.
The past March, the two boxers collided in a widely anticipated grudge match, at the same London venue.
Bellew, who was moving up from the cruiserweight ranks, was a huge underdog in the contest.
Bellew held his own in the first five rounds, before Haye suffered a serious injury to his Achilles and became a one-legged fighter. At that point Bellew took over the entire fight and eventually stopped Haye in the eleventh round - which everyone saw as a major upset.
Joshua, who returns next Saturday night in a world title defense against Carlos Takam in Cardiff, is not expecting a different result in the rematch.
Haye's injury aside, Joshua felt the former heavyweight champion was simply swinging away with huge punches that were mostly missing - and he also saw Bellew proving that he was capable of taking Haye's best shot without going down.
"Brilliant for Bellew [to get the rematch], he's a phenomenal character, one of the realists in the sport. I've got a lot of respect for him. I'll be there, it'll be one before Christmas to look forward to," Joshua said.
"It'll be the same outcome. Haye is fit he is training on Miami on boats living the life, but he won the fight before it was even fought in his head.
"If you look at the previous fight, Haye was just trying to land Haymakers and Bellew was the boxer. Haye was swinging a big right hand and Bellew was moving his feet well. When you feel someone's best and you're able to carry on that gives you a boost."
