The build up to David Haye's fight with fellow Brit Tony Bellew was stepped up a notch on Tuesday morning when the two men squared off in a press conference.

The fight is scheduled to take place at London's 02 Arena on March 4, and there is no love lost between the pair as they came to blows in the aftermath.

While the two fighters went nose-to-nose for the photo call, the Liverpudlian pushed his veteran counterpart, which prompted Haye to respond with a frighteningly quick left hook.

The fight is already being hotly anticipated, with Bellew looking to follow in Haye's footsteps by stepping up to the heavyweight division from Welterweight, though many are wondering if the size difference will ultimately play its part in the outcome.

But both will be feeling confident in their abilities, despite the age gap.

However, there was one cheeky dig thrown by the veteran Haye in the aftermath of the press conference, one that most might have missed had they not been watching it live.

When asked by Sky Sports for a word on his opponent, Haye responded: "Tony Bellew, you're a bellend and you're gonna get knocked out."

The insult was then jumped on by a very worried sounding reporter who continued to speak over the veteran fighter as he attempted to apologise.

The incident will no doubt be swept away by the Sky editors, but luckily it was recorded and posted onto social media for future posterity.

In all honesty, it's nothing worse than we've heard from either man before, but the clearly worried reporter is perhaps the funniest thing about the incident.

Either way, it's going to be a terrific fight whatever happens.
