Tony Bellew stopped David Haye in their first meeting in March 2017
Monday, October 30, 2017
Tony Bellew insists he doesn’t hate David Haye – but admits he’s looking forward to punching him in the face!
The pair will clash for the second time at the 02 next month – in a fight you can hear exclusively live only on talkSPORT – following Bellew’s 11th round stoppage win back in March.
That content was preceded by a bitter war of words in which the pair exchanged ugly insults. And, although there was plenty of mutual respect after the bout, Bellew concedes there is no love lost between the heavyweight rivals.
“He [Haye] can’t stand me,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “He can’t even look me in the face. He should have worked on Saturday on the AJ [Anthony Joshua] fight, but he wouldn’t be there because I was there.
“He detests me in every single way possible. He doesn’t believe I’m even on the same level as him.
“I haven’t really got any hatred towards David Haye, I just think he’s a plant pot! I’m looking forward to punching him in the face.”
