Bellew: Time For War, David Haye's Career Will End in a Beating!

By Elliot Foster

Tony Bellew said David Haye is fighting for his career ahead of their rematch.

The pair meet at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office, in a heavyweight grudge fight.

Bellew won their first encounter 14 months ago at the same venue, before which Haye said that ‘Bomber’ would not have enough to come out on top.

But the 35-year-old won the fight via 11th-round stoppage after ‘Hayemaker’s’ Achilles went in the sixth round.

“On Saturday, it comes to an end, it really does. For the first time in your career you are fighting for your career,” Bellew said in front of his adoring fellow Liverpudlian’s at the city’s BT Convention Centre Auditorium.

"If this goes wrong, nothing can save you. I've done this five or six times. I know the kind of pressure it brings. You're in a lot of trouble on Saturday.”

Haye, who has 28 wins from his 31 fights as a professional, has vowed to right the wrongs of his last outing against Bellew.

He has been out of the ring since their first fight and has since left Shane McGuigan and teamed up with Ismael Salas.

And though Haye has insisted it will be a successful revenge mission at the weekend, Bellew said he knows what to expect from the former undisputed cruiserweight champion.

He added: ”David was amazed that I took the rematch. I'm doing it, and I'll do exactly what I did in the first fight. David is not back to win world titles, he's back to try to rob the bank. He wants to fight little fatties like me.

"Expect a cagey start, he'll show me the respect he should have shown me in the first fight, I'm sure. Saturday is time to go to war –– and Haye’s career ends in a beating.”

I’m not particularly excited by this fight and it’s simply a retirement fund for both fighters. What I’d really relish is seeing Bellew pitted against Dorticos, Gassiev or Usyk. These guys, cruiserweights in their absolute prime, would undoubtedly obliterate him…

Prime Haye absolutely murders Bellew BUT.. a 37 yo HW who´s best weapon is (was) speed is doomed. Haye could win this one if he stays in one piece but I think he should retire after, win or lose. At…
