Bellew: Haye Will Always Be an Assh*le, I'm Coming To End Him!

According to Tony Bellew (29-2-1, 19 KOs), he is on a mission to put the final nail in the coffin of the career of former two division champion David Haye (28-3, 26 KOs).

The two domestic rivals will collide at the O2 Arena on December 17, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The two met back in March, with Bellew dropping the WBC cruiserweight title and heading up to the heavyweight division to face Haye in a very anticipated grudge match.

Bellew was a huge underdog in the contest, but he shocked the sport when he walked away with a TKO victory in eleven rounds. Haye was doing very well in the fight - until his Achilles burst and he became a one-legged fighter - and a sitting duck for Bellew's punches.

While they embraced after the fight, the bad blood has returned.

After Haye lost,  many expected him to retire - including Bellew. Haye announced that he was fighting forward and targeted a rematch with Bellew.

Now the deal is done, and Bellew took the contest for two reasons - the money and the opportunity to retire Haye. 

“David Haye will always be an assh*le, he’s always going to be an idiot who rubs people up the wrong way, but love him or loathe him, they will tune in to watch him. He’s still a brilliant fighter, who’s very very powerful. If he hits me clean with that right hand, I’m going to go down. I’m going to get up but make no mistake. But that coin has another side, and I can do the exact same to him. The thing with me is, I’m a realist and not a fantasist," Bellew said.

"I told David in the first fight, this fight could end really quick. He said to me, 'it will end really quick’ and I said 'it could for you too', he replied, 'no you can’t hurt me.’ He now knows I can hurt him and he knows he’s in trouble. Now he understands he can lose to me, but what’s he going to do when he loses the next one. I’m coming to end David Haye’s career.”

Haye wins comfortably if he boxes a smart fight. Last time out his timing/accuracy was off because he was trying too hard to knock Bellew out. His mobility was also reduced through the excess muscle, can't see him making the…

Bellew couldn't even finish a 1 legged Haye, Haye fell over, Bellew didn't even land anything when Haye went down.

Haye underestimated Bellew the first fight. Its just will be too much at stake for Haye to lose the rematch. Absent another injury, I think Haye should even the score with this one. Not sure about the knockout though. Haye…
