Coldwell Breaks Down Inoue vs. McDonnell, Bellew vs. Haye 2

May 5th will represent the beginning of what is arguably the most significant month of Dave Coldwell's boxing career.

On that date, the Sheffield trainer will aim to upset the odds once more as Tony Bellew tackles David Haye in a rematch from their 2017 grudge clash. Immediately after, Coldwell will head to Japan as he puts in the final stages of Jamie McDonnell's gruelling camp as the Doncaster bantamweight prepares for the imminent threat of Naoya Inoue on May 25th.

Both Bellew and McDonnell enter the ring as wide underdogs but Coldwell insists that he's seen enough to convince him that victory is more than reachable in both spring showdowns.

"It's getting near, but it's what I'm in boxing for," buzzed and excited Coldwell.

"Nights like these are what I dream about at night because I love this sport. I love my job as a trainer and I want to be the very best that I can be. Testing yourself against the world's best fighters is a massive motivation for me as a trainer, and all I want is to give my lads the best version of me so I can help them achieve glory that they've dreamed about themselves.

"I look at the two fights coming up in May and although they both look daunting on paper, this is boxing and with the right gameplan and circumstances, nothing is beyond Tony and Jamie as they go into these huge occasions on away ground. The pair of them have been defying the odds ever since they walked in my gym and I fully believe they can continue that trend."

On his charges' opponents, Coldwell added, "There's no doubting how hard these fights are going to be. Haye is eager to prove a point and he's essentially fighting to save his career. He's made changes to his body and to his team from the first fight, and I think we're going to see a bit more sharpness and speed from the first fight. He's getting older, but I'm still preparing Tony to be facing the best ever version of Haye.

"Inoue is an altogether different threat as he's in blistering form and is one of the best fighters on the planet. He's coming to bantamweight to take on Jamie so he's also taking a big step, but I've noticed a few things with him that I believe Jamie can exploit. This away environment is what makes Jamie come alive and if he can get a result in Japan then maybe it'll be time that British boxing finally begins to salute him."
