The hype for Saturday night’s fight between David Haye and Tony Bellew can’t have been any more intense. There was a blow landed by Haye on Bellew at a press conference last November and recently in another press conference, they were slanging expletives back and forth across the room at each other, to the point that security had to step in to keep them apart. It’s fair to say that they don’t like each other and there is going to be some blood lust at the O2 Arena on Saturday evening.
David Haye is odds on favourite to take the win because of his extensive experience at the top of the heavyweight division class through his career. He’s not at his peak anymore as the 36 year old steps into the ring for his first meaningful bout since his 2011 loss against Wladimir Klitschko. After taking a four year break from the sport, he has spent just three rounds back in the ring before going into Saturday’s bout with challenger Bellew.
Bellew is a cruiserweight fighter who has packed on the pounds to step up a division and take on Haye. While like Haye, he has lost just two fights in his career, “Bomber” is lacking the big fight experience. He will face a deadly punch that the Hayemaker can deliver and Haye have never been an easy man to put on the canvas. So will the challenger be able to punch above his weight and down down the favourite? The bookmakers don’t think so because it’s hard for boxers to make the step up in weight divisions and be competitive.
It is likely that the Hayemaker will want to end this quickly. There are obviously going to be questions over his stamina and he won’t want the fight to go long. He is the bigger puncher of the two and the more experienced and has the natural weight advantage of performing at this division. So will he be able to silence Bellew who has pretty much called Haye old and a bit of coward for having faced weak opponents on his comeback to the sport? Haye has said that he is ready to put an end to Bellew’s career by taking him to cleaners on Saturday night.
