Hi Guy’s Welcome to watch Haye vs Bellew fight Confirm at 4 March. Former world champions David Haye and Tony Bellew meet in a Heavyweight grudge match in London Saturday March 4, 2017. The pair will go head-to-head at the O2 Arena, London.
I think people are really excited about the Haye-Bellew fight and the rivalry between those guys. As a boxer, these are the kind of nights you want to be a part of. It’s a massive stage for me and I’m really looking forward to it.”I’ve been here in the US for the last few weeks in training camp for the fight and working hard. It’s the start of a very big year for me and I know there are big plans, but I need to keep winning and keep performing so I’m not looking any further beyond March 4.
Former two-weight World champion Haye returned from a three and a half year absence from the ring in January at The O2 with a first round KO win over Mark De Mori, following that in the same setting four months later with a second round KO win over Arnold Gjergjaj. The ‘Hayemaker’ has dominated the ring for over a decade, crowned the Cruiserweight King, unifying the division in March 2008 with a fine win over Enzo Maccarinelli again at The O2. Then added The WBA World Heavyweight Championship to his impressive CV 18 months later against Nikolai Valuev – becoming the second boxer in history to win World Titles at both weight divisions.
Bellew became a World champion in stunning fashion in the summer when he climbed off the canvas in the first round against hard-hitting Ilunga Makabu to win the WBC Cruiserweight title with a devastating third round KO at Goodison Park in May – the home of his beloved Everton FC. ‘The Bomber’s’ success came at the third attempt having twice boxed for World titles at Light-Heavyweight before moving to Cruiserweight where he exacted revenge for one of his World title reverses against old rival Nathan Cleverly then landing the European crown against Mateusz Masternak before becoming World champion.
