Tony Bellew: We Will Close The Curtain on David Haye!

By Elliot Foster

Tony Bellew has claimed he will not offer David Haye a handshake after the pair clashed at the final press conference on Thursday.

The former WBC cruiserweight world champion takes on the 37-year-old in a heavyweight grudge rematch on Saturday, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

Bellew pushed Haye at the Park Plaza Hotel in the capital –– and has promised not to be civil after the final bell at the O2 Arena in London.

But despite being fined by the British Boxing Board of Control for his behaviour in the build-up in the build-up to the first fight last March, which ended in an 11th-round victory for the Liverpudlian, Bellew went head-to-head with ‘Hayemaker’, shoving his right arm into Haye’s throat, before security staff restored order.

"There will be no shaking hands afterwards and he's getting dealt with, simple as that,” Bellew said during fight week.

The pair will weigh-in on Friday ahead of Saturday’s rematch –– but ‘Bomber’, 35, is insistent that the niceties of the pre-fight build-up have now stopped.
"I showed respect, purely for what he did for me. I gave that back by doing this fight," Bellew said.

"I didn't need to give David a rematch. He was so smarmy, arrogant and cocky that he didn't put a rematch clause in the contract. No one does that, at this level. Anything past domestic level, you put a rematch clause in.

“On Saturday night, you will see me knock out one of the greatest fighters this country has ever produced.

"There will be no rematch, this time. We close the curtain on you, David, and your career ends in a beating.”
