David Haye 'F****** Retards' Comment To Be Reviewed By Board

Promoter Eddie Hearn has played down claims David Haye might pull out of Saturday's fight with Tony Bellew due to an Achilles injury. If he wasn't fighting I'd know. Bellew, who has repeatedly called Haye "a broken man" appeared the calmer of the pair as he responded: "I am going in with a man who was absolutely fantastic".

Chisora has shared the ring with both fighters in Saturday's showdown at the O2 in London.

With that said, does Bellew have the boxing skills and the chin to survive into the later rounds against Haye?

He added: "The pressure is on Haye, Haye has to win this fight because if he doesn't he has been beaten by a light heavyweight". Haye put on 17 pounds of muscle, which he should have done years ago when Booth was training him, and he's obliterated his last two opponents.

Once Bellew took his turn at the podium things calmed down a bit, but Haye continued to taunt Bellew's fans afterwards on social media calling them racist and drunken idiots.

"But looking back, if I could rewind time I would do things differently". I've had fights where I haven't been myself, but I stand here super-healthy and super-fast and fit.

"It's definitely a fight of Haye's heavy-handedness and sharp-shooting style, getting to grips with it early and winning, or can Bellew withstand that assault - what is going to get slung on him - and drag it into a dogfight in the second half?"

'Do I look injured to you?

"I will eradicate everything I've said and it will be forgotten when Tony Bellew is stretched out unconscious on the canvas".

Hearn could then put together a nice little in house Matchroom Sport fight between Bellew and Joshua.
