British Boxing Board `disappointed´ with David Haye´s pre-fight outburst

British Boxing Board `disappointed´ with David Haye´s pre-fight outburst

David Haye vs Tony Bellew is shaping up to be one of the fights of the decade this Saturday night. He will be at the workouts and he will be in the ring on Saturday.

Following the commotion and worry, The Mirror newspaper have reported that David Haye is fit to fight on Saturday March the 4th.

The pair entered their pre-fight news conference from different corridors at a Liverpool hotel and had burly minders separating them as they engaged in some heated trash-talk.

Most observers agree that the hatred between the two men is genuine, but it's unclear what started it.

The world title challenger believes all the pressure is on Haye heading into the heavyweight clash.

'He's clinging on to me being a broken man, for his confidence'. Some boxing fans have already labeled the Haye vs. Bellew fight as a simple money grab.

Haye's last appearance in a boxing ring came in May of a year ago when he stopped Arnold Gjergjaj inside the distance at the O2 Arena in London.

"Tony mustn't allow him to dictate the pace and tee off on him because we know all about his power".

Current IBF World Super Middleweight champ James DeGale most closely matches the average journey a fighter takes to claim a title, with the Olympic hero requiring 22 bouts to reach the summit, losing once and knocking out 64% of his opponents. "He is very, very heavy handed and we don't know how much fight he has in him, and he won't know until he actually gets tested - especially with his injuries. I think they are going to have to have a cordon of security people dividing them like they did when Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson fought each other".

The fight could be a thriller, agrees the Sun. Both fighters have the same knockout rate - 67%.
