According to promoter Eddie Hearn, fans can practically forget about a fall rematch between David Haye and Tony Bellew.
The two British rivals collided back in March in a Sky Sports pay-per-view main event. Bellew, who was the WBC cruiserweight champion at the time, moved up to the heavyweight division to pull off a shocking eleven round stoppage of Haye.
Haye appeared to have control in the contest until he ruptured his Achilles and then the entire fight changed as he was unable to stay competitive with only one good leg.
Because of the injury, there was a big fan demand for an immediate rematch. Haye underwent surgery for the injury and he's finally returned to the gym to begin training.
Before the fight, the two fighters expressed their hatred for each other. Not much changed in the aftermath.
Hearn, who promotes Bellew, says it's become impossible to get the two boxers to agree on the terms.
Because of the win, Bellew believes that he's entitled to A-side treatment in the rematch. Haye believes his rival's win is tainted due to the injury and he also feels that his name still carries a lot more weight than the Liverpool fighter.
Hearn is even finding it impossible to get them to agree to minor things, like first billing rights on the promotional items and the order of the ring walks.
"I don't think Bellew-Haye will happen. Although there was hugs and kisses in the ring after the fight, trying to get these two to agree to anything is a complete disaster. Tony Bellew feels like he got the win, so he should get the benefits of that win, and David Haye feels like Bellew still isn't on his level. When you're talking about ring walks, who goes first on the poster, changing rooms, splits - all this kind of stuff, it's impossible. I think at this stage, Bellew-Haye II is virtually dead," Hearn told Sky Sports.
