Bellew: Haye Should Be Honest - He Lost His Money, Needs More

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

TONY BELLEW is motivated to beat David Haye by the school bullies who tell his kid he is going to get knocked out. The Liverpool heavyweight faces Haye in a rematch at the O2 on Saturday.

Bellew is proud of his family of three kids with partner Rachael but admits he has been hurt to find out the stick his eldest son Corey, 12, gets at school because of his ring career.

He said: “My eldest son Corey, when I won at Goodison against Ilunga Makabu to win the world title, said ‘Good, I can tell them at school now that my dad’s a winner’.

"Kids are kids and they can be nasty when they’re at school.

“When your kid is going to school and gets told, ‘Your dad is getting knocked out on Saturday’, its f****** horrible, it’s not nice.

“He just smiles at it but it broke my heart when I was told, I felt like crying when I was told that was going on.

“My kids are just the same as all the other kids, my son has to defend me and it does my head in. I’m portrayed as some kind of superman and I’m not.”

“I was just going to be a fella who worked on the door, so by doing what I’ve done, I’ve won”

Bellew, 35, has already achieved his dream of winning a world title when he clinched the WBC cruiserweight title against Makabu in 2016 at the home of his beloved Everton.

He also pocketed a seven-figure sum for beating Haye in their first clash last year and will earn a similar amount tonight.

But many thought Bellew should quit after upsetting Haye in March of last year to sail off into the sunset with a win to finish off his 32-fight career.

“I’ve achieved what I’ve achieved,” he said. “I’ve already won. Remember, I never threw a punch until I was 15 in my last year at school.

“I got expelled from school, and I was just going to be a fella who worked on the door, so by doing what I’ve done, I’ve won.”

But Bellew insists his bitter rival Haye is just doing this for money.

The Liverpool fighter believes the proof is that he did not risk a fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder, opting for an easier clash against him.

“Why doesn’t he be honest and say, ‘I’ve earned £20m, p***ed it up the wall and I’m back to get more money’,

“I don’t care about money, I’ll just do whatever it takes to win.

“He is back for the money, Wilder against Haye makes more money than Bellew against Haye and he is a liar if he says it doesn’t.

“So why did he chase a little fat Scouser? Because it sells in Britain and looks an easy win.”

If Haye 'is just doing it for the money' then he wd surely want to win this fight to set up a trilogy. I say Haye wins, in a controversial fight..

I'm sure Haye wants revenge too. He did show a lot of heart in that loss even if I think he will fade late again.

Nail-head! Any one that thinks Haye is doing this for anything other than money is an idiot. How can any one support this fraud?

If Haye has any desire left whatsoever he’ll spark Bellew out tonight. Hopefully the loss has given Haye some motivation, he came in injured last time and still would have probably won on the card if the foot hadn’t snapped.…

[QUOTE=Robbie Barrett;18737375]His achilles was ****ed before the fight. It was in the paper that he went to see a doctor about it in Germany. Haye was winning the fight and was under no pressure until his achilles went, don't know…
