Haye Talks Bellew, Fury and Joshua

March 4th is still a few weeks away but it can’t come quick enough for me.

I’ve become wrapped up in all the intrigue that surrounds the heavyweight fight between the former world heavyweight champion David Haye and the WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew.

Haye, who has ambitions of becoming a heavyweight world champion again, is of the opinion that he can dispose of the threat Bellew poses quite quickly, with Haye remarking to the media,

“I don’t think my fight with Bellew is any kind of test for me. It’s a fun fight for the fans, that’s all it is. A fight doesn’t have to be a test to be fun. Even if I have my worst night ever and he has his best. I’ll still knock him out.

“But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to prepare properly as I respect every fighter who climbs through the ropes.”


There also seems to be a mutual dislike between the two and Haye, talking about the current WBC cruiserweight champion, had this to say,

“Bellew won the WBC title but he did have a lot more help to the top than I did.

“I had to fight in final eliminators, I had to go to foreign soil and fight on a Don King promotion. I had everything against me.

“Bellew had his fight at his home football club for a vacant title. He had things a lot easier.”


Or maybe he just took the opportunity that befell him.

As for the future, Haye is aiming high, remarking,

“I need five more fights to prove I’m the best before I retire.

“The #1 target is IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

“Next is Tyson Fury. If he makes that comeback it will either be myself or Joshua in the opposite corner – there’s two big fights to be going on with.”


It’ll certainly be interesting to see if Tyson Fury, after two fights with Haye were postponed due to injury, would ever entertain the idea of making it third time lucky.

As for Hayes objectives, let’s see if he can get past Bellew first shall we!
