The rescheduled rematch between David Haye and Tony Bellew has been agreed and announced for May 5th 2018 at the O2 arena in London. Haye injured his bicep in training for the original rematch date of December 17th. Injury also aided Haye's loss in the first Bellew fight, and the Evertonian is clearly fed up with the delays and excuses, promising to “punish” the Londoner for the extensions.
“I’m pleased to get a new date in the diary and I look forward to giving boxing fans a great night on May 5," said Bellew.
"To be honest, I was looking forward to a great victory in December and a relaxing family break over Xmas but my mind is still very much on this fight and I will punish him for that."
Bellew's plans for 2018 don't end with beating Haye a second time though, it sounds as if he's grown quite comfortable in the heavyweight division. The WBC cruiserweight “champion emeritus” is also talking up a bout with Tyson Fury later in the year. Fury will find out whether he is able to return to the ring later this month, and has been training and active on social media. The two have been swapping insults online, and Bellew has even come up with a nickname for the former unified heavyweight champion,
"I now have a very clear plan for 2018 and that is to knock out David Haye and then knock out Tyson ‘Stavros Flatley’ Fury and end both their careers but first things first I need to rid the sport of David Haye on May 5 and I look forward to doing this in what I believe will be an explosive fight.”
The five month lay off until the Haye rematch has given the bookmakers increased confidence in Haye getting the best of Bellew, but it sounds as if “Bomber” doesn't plan on going down without a fight.
