It’s been 14 months since David Haye and Tony Bellew clashed in their first heavyweight meeting at London’s O2 Arena.
On that occasion the Liverpool-born Bellew stopped Haye in the 11th round, but the former heavyweight champion had suffered an Achilles injury in the sixth, hampering his movement.
The pair meet for a rematch at the same venue on Saturday, and if it is anything like their first encounter it should be a superb spectacle.
Bellew, 35, has made confident noises ahead of the rematch with Haye.
He has vowed to finish his fellow Briton before the eighth round and said Haye “should have stayed well clear of me,” per BBC Sport.
For his part, the 37-year-old Haye has admitted he “overestimated” himself by coming out of retirement and taking only two easy fights before meeting Bellew.
Per Sky Sports James Dielhenn, he acknowledged that his 2012 knockout victory of Dereck Chisora was his last real challenge before the first Bellew clash, as between those two bouts he easily dispatched Mark de Mori and Arnold Gjergjaj:
“The Dereck Chisora fight was my last competitive boxing match. Outside of that, in the two comeback fights, I didn’t get punched once. It was just me beating someone up. I overestimated how good I was. I thought that I was as good as I was in 2012. You can’t just take a break, come back, and expect to be just as good. You need to work your way back up.“
Despite eventually losing to Bellew last March Haye came out of the fight with plenty of credit.
He will be desperate to prove it was only due to the Achilles injury that he was downed last time out.
But Bellew will be equally eager to show he can beat Haye at heavyweight even with the London-born fighter fully fit.
Although it was a fascinating contest, in large part due to Haye’s stubbornness in carrying on, the pair’s first fight was lacking as it was impossible to know what the outcome would have been were it not for Haye being hobbled halfway through.
