Tony Bellew Tells David Haye on Rematch: I Oblige You!

by Shaun Brown


It looks as though Tony Bellew has said yes to a rematch with David Haye on Sunday, December 17.

Yesterday was a flurry of activity with reports suggesting that the fight had been agreed for eight days before Christmas at London's O2 Arena.

Haye himself backed up the speculation by taking to Twitter saying: "It’s taken months of negotiating but teams have finally agreed ALL terms for #HayeBellew2 Will Bellew put pen to paper?" !#RevengeOrRepeat

Now, it's Haye conqueror from their first fight back in March, who has had his turn on Twitter. Earlier today the Liverpudlian said: "Don't really feel like talking tbh! I OBLIGE YOU @mrdavidhaye, happy? Now leave me alone with my family please. I'll see you soon enough!"

Bellew recently suffered a bereavement in his life and one can only assume that this was the reason for parts of that tweet.

Bellew stopped Haye in the 11th round of their contest. Despite being written off in many quarters it was the former WBC Cruiserweight champion, who moved up to heavyweight to fight Haye, that stopped the former WBA Heavyweight champion in a tale of two fights.

A see-saw affair for five rounds that saw both men land many heavy punches before Haye ruptured his Achilles Tendon. Bellew too would break his hand in the fight as well. A valiant effort by Haye on one leg came to a halt in the penultimate round of an absorbing, edge of the seat fight.

Bellew's promoter Eddie Hearn did pour a touch of cold water on the excitement yesterday, telling Sky Sports News: "Nothing is signed yet but I'm catching up with Tony later this week and you can cross your fingers for an announcement in the next week or so."

I'm a Haye fan but he's washed up. Bellew looks like **** at heavyweight. Like he eats nothing but chips and candies. And it's not like was a great boxer at the lighter weight. He got starched by Adonis "I…

Haye has looked bad for years at heavyweight and carrying the extra 1.5 stone in his come back he looked even worse. Believe it or not Bellew is the best fighter Haye has dared face in this comeback and had…

Haye Pls fkng focus this time bellew is literally a human punching bag that has a better mouth than a skill set you give him too much respect

Haye SHOULD have stopped him in the first fight. He'll need to fight smart rather than just loading up...however I don't know if he's capable of doing that outside of the Valuev fight as Valuev was just much bigger. I…

Haye should smash Bellew if his body doesn't defeat him. Was 4-1 before the injury and Bellew looked ****. Late TKO or wide UD.
