David Haye will look to exact revenge on Tony Bellew when they rematch at the O2 Arena on Sunday 17 December.

Back in March, the Hayemaker was beaten by Bellew in the 11th round by TKO after suffering a gruesome Achilles injury early on.

But now he's back and ready to set the record straight, saying that he feels "fitter, stronger and more athletic" than six months ago.

"I'm excited to give the public the rematch they truly crave, ever since the explosive first showdown earlier this year," said Haye after the rematch was confirmed.

"On 4 March the script was thrown out the window and the unpredictability of sport revealed itself in its most raw form.

"He somehow won the lottery in our first fight but believe me, he won't win the lottery twice. I've been training every day for over six months.

"I already feel fitter, stronger and more athletic than I did for our first showdown. On 17 December, I will relish the opportunity to rewrite the ending of the Haye-Bellew story."

Just like last time, Haye is confident he will emerge victorious over Bellew, who is aiming to end the 36-year-old's career by beating him for a second time.

But what if Haye does beat Bellew? What if the Hayemaker levels the scores at the O2 Arena?


Well, according to Bellew himself, there's an exciting clause in their contract that will allow a 'trilogy' fight if Haye makes it 1-1.

The die-hard Everton fan claims Haye refused to sign the contract unless a third fight was made possible, so he accepted.

Speaking to, Bellew said: "He wouldn't sign the contract until he got the upper hand and if there was a trilogy, but I've given him all the upper hand in the options if there was a third fight.

"But I'm telling you now, there will not be a third fight. I will end David Haye's career on Sunday 17th December.


"Once he loses again to me, his career is then over. There is no two ways about that.

"I gave him all the little options and obligations he wants, and if there is a rematch and stuff like that. Don’t get me wrong, it's all 'if' David wins.

"If David wins, the third fight will be in his favour. I was happy to give him that because I know there will be no third fight. This freak show will end of the December 17th."
