Dillian Whyte has his say on Tony Bellew vs David Haye: The Rematch

Tony Bellew and David Haye Press Conference

Dillian Whyte has added further fuel to the fire by backing Tony Bellew ahead of his heavyweight rematch against David Haye on Saturday.

Veteran Haye will be aiming to reverse his stoppage defeat to Bellew in the pair's last bout, with the Liverpudlian aiming to get one over on the Londoner once again.

Whyte, who has his own history of verbal spats with Bellew, has come out as an unlikely ally ahead of the O2 showdown at the weekend, which will see both fighters go toe-to-toe in a grudge fight.

Whyte will be an interested spectator in the capital on Saturday, and he is hoping that Bellew can inflict another defeat on 37-year-old Haye, who he labelled "disrespectful."

"It's a massive heavyweight fight," Whyte told Sky Sports.

"I want to be there to see it. Keep an eye on the winner, and the loser, because they are both potential fights for me.

"It's funny. Me and Tony, we've had back and forth, but we've spoken a couple of times. Tony is alright. David is a very ignorant guy. Very disrespectful."

Whyte then went onto utter strong words against Haye, who had to cancel the previous rematch due to an injury, for comments that the Londoner has made in the past.

"Right now, I would like to see Tony Bellew tuck him in, to be honest, again. I'm not just saying that because I'm a Matchroom fighter. I'm saying it based on David Haye's behaviour and his attitude.

"He's shown how disrespectful he's been to every other fighter. He always writes me off as well. I would like to see him get tucked in.

"David never says anything good about me and never tries to support anything I do. He always tries to belittle my performance, apart from the last performance."
