Malignaggi Breaks Down Bellew vs. Haye Rematch

Tony Bellew shoved David Haye in the throat Thursday as the tension mounts ahead of their rematch on Saturday.

Bellew said he was not feeling Haye's love when the Londoner adopted a humble approach during a press conference back in February.

Haye threw a punch at Bellew at a news conference in 2016 before their first fight last year, but this time it was the Liverpudlian throwing his weight around. Security staff intervened when Bellew lashed out with his right arm as the pair went head-to-head at the O2 Arena in London.

Haye was stopped by Bellew in their heavyweight bout last March, but said it will be a different story this weekend.

"I've learned from my mistakes, inside and outside the ring. This time around it may not be as controversial. It will be a little more clinical. I've kept my game-plan under wraps, but it's to do as much damage over the first six rounds. Then step it up." said the Londoner. "Being in there with him first time around, the shots that were missing, will be landing. I will give you the performance a lot of people expected first time around."

According to former world champion Paulie Malignaggi, the second half of the contest will be the true test of Haye's ability to overcome Bellew.

"I think that is Tony trying to get into David's head. I think he is trying to make David doubt the game plan. By Tony saying that, maybe it will make David think 'Wow, is he right? Will it be easier for Tony if I am closer to his size?' But David Haye was knocking out cruiserweights badly. He had some highlight reel knockouts even in the cruiserweight division," Malignaggi told Sky Sports News.

"I think the lighter weight for David probably benefits him because he will have the firepower but he will also have the stamina and the speed advantage as well. Tony is guy who likes to go to that dark place and take you to that dark place to see if you can come out of it unscathed. David has not really liked to go to those places in his career. That is really the key issue.

"I think early on David Haye is dangerous but the later the fight goes we will see if David's new-found stamina can help him or if Tony takes him to those dark places again."

i honestly think a healthy Hayes does a job on Bellews...if no injuries occur i see hayes putting a whooping on Bellew.....Bellew got lucky the 1st time and has since milked his popularity and has waited for the pay instead…

I don't want there to be permanent damage but seeing Bellew viciously knocked out and carried out on a stretcher back home to the wife and kids will make my year for boxing.

Bellend looks much slicker and sharper in the workout vids tbh, Haye still doesn't look fluid , tight in the hips , I doubt he's improving his skills as Bellew is I hope he lands one down the pipe and…

The closer the fight, the stronger my gut feeling of betting on a second Bellew win.
