David Price: Tony Bellew Will Beat David Haye Again

Olympic bronze medal winner David Price is backing his close friend, Tony Bellew, to repeat - with a rematch victory over former heavyweight champion David Haye.

Last March at the O2 Arena in London, Bellew moved up from the cruiserweight division to pull off a shocking upset eleven round stoppage of Haye, who during the contest suffered a freak Achilles’ injury in the sixth round.

While Haye was a massive favorite in the first meeting, the rematch is being viewed as a much closer contest - mainly because the 37-year-old Haye has become injury prone since coming back in January 2016 after several years of inactivity.

The Bellew (29-2-1, 19 KOs) vs. Haye (28-3, 26 KOs) rematch will take place on May 5th, back at the O2 Arena.

Initially, the rematch was scheduled to take place in December of last year, but the contest was postponed after Haye suffered a left bicep injury in training camp.

Price is actually concerned with Haye's physical health, crossing his fingers that the Hayemaker does not suffer another injury that would threaten the new rematch date.

"I hope he can make it to the ring, because obviously he's having problems with his body breaking down in training camp and things like that. He's had a bit of bad luck in the build-up to the last one, but that can happen to anyone. It was just a freak thing by the sounds of it," Price told Sky Sports.

"The Achilles injury, by the time the fight will come, it will have been over 12 months so it will be healed. Now the fight has been put back, it's going to benefit David Haye more than Tony Bellew, because Bellew has been busy for years now, active, winning, form, momentum, and it's made him a better fighter. That's definitely in David Haye's favor, but still I think Bellew will beat him again. He got one over him, and I just think he's got it in him to do it again."

These guys are just as deluded as each other. After they lose their fights they should call it one.
