David Haye and Tony Bellew will fight next year, but that doesn't mean they will not fight beforehand as evidenced by the press conference they had.
Haye and Bellew kicked off their promotional tour with a press conference on November 30 and both Haye and Bellew came face-to-face, with Bellew shoving Haye as Haye unleashed a swing on Bellew, nearly creating a chaotic fight scene that only seemed to highlight the intense dislike both men have for one another.
Tony Bellew posted this on his Instagram after the press conference.
Haye in response posted a video on Instagram, saying Bellew will receive a "left hook or a right hand on Haye's chin."
The intense feud started a couple of months ago. Bellew delivered a quick performance back on October 15 in his first defense as the WBC Cruiserweight champion when he scored a TKO victory against BJ Flores in the third round. Bellew then walked towards Haye, who was attending the fight, and yelled at him "I'm the champion." The fight was announced earlier this week and will take happen next March.
Bellew is moving up to heavyweight for this fight. Haye is former WBA heavyweight champion before he lost his title to Wladimir Klitschko in 2011. The non-title fight will take place at the O2 Arena in London, England and will be broadcasted on Sky Sports.
