‘I will re­tire Haye’

Daily Express - - SPORT -

TONY BELLEW and David Haye will fight again at London’s O2 arena on De­cem­ber 17.

Bellew stepped up to heavy­weight to beat ex­world cham­pion Haye in March. Haye fought for five of their 11 rounds with a rup­tured Achilles, but is now fit again.

There was plenty of bad blood be­tween the pair in the build-up to the first fight and Bellew said: “I will have the ex­act same at­ti­tude – win at all costs. I’ll be vic­to­ri­ous and end David Haye’s ca­reer. An­other loss to me closes the cur­tain on the Hayemaker. This isn’t per­sonal any­more, it’s strictly business.”

Haye, now trained by Is­mael Salas, said: “I’m ex­cited to give the public the re­match they truly crave, ever since the ex­plo­sive first show­down.

“On March 4, the script was thrown out the window and the un­pre­dictabil­ity of sport re­vealed it­self in its most raw form.

“He some­how won the lot­tery in our first fight, but be­lieve me, he won’t win the lot­tery twice.”
