David Haye has no idea how he will beat Tony Bellew when they rematch at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night but he is adamant he will extract revenge on his bitter rival before the final bell.
Bellew scored a dramatic 11th round stoppage win over the former heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion after Haye injured his Achilles in round six in March 2017. But this time Haye said he will beat Bellew with, “speed, timing, accuracy and conditioning’.
Speaking at Monday’s press conference, David Haye said: "It may not be early. It may be very late. I might aim to do something I’ve never done before. I always aim to take people out early but I might try something different.
"It will be a knockout, TKO, referee stoppage or the towel will come in. He will not hear the final bell. Dave Coldwell(Bellew’s trainer) is a compassionate man."
Bellew was quick to interrupt Haye by reminding him: "You threw the towel in last time, not me!
"This one is different, yes the injury played a part, it saved him from getting knocked cold.
"David will revert to type and then he will get stopped."
Regarding Haye insisting he will get his revenge, Bellew added: "David is living in fantasy land. He will get smacked and be put back in his box."
