Bellew vs Haye 2 postponed due to David Haye arm injury

Bellew vs Haye 2 postponed due to David Haye arm injury

Haye and Bellew were due to square off again in an all-British showdown on December 17 at the O2 Arena in London. He hates pulling out of fights, and knows he has been injured in the past and let people down.

DAVID HAYE's eagerly anticipated rematch with Tony Bellew is likely to take place in March or May after the Hayemaker pulled out with injury.

The42 has just published its first book, Behind The Lines, a collection of some of the year's best sports stories.

While Tyson Fury was the quickest off the mark to throw his hat in the ring for the Bellew bout, the controversial heavyweight suggested a clash next May due to the fact that he is not close to fighting shape and still has to go through the process of getting his licence reinstated.

However Haye has firmly stated he WILL be back inside the ring to face the former WBC cruiserweight champion. "Despite the recent injury rumors, I was in ideal condition with an incredibly strong training camp, now weighing lighter than I have for more than five years".

Haye has undergone a procedure to fix the damage and was told by doctors he will make a full recovery.

Bellew dramatically won the first bout in the 11th round in March, although Haye struggled through with an Achilles problem he picked up early on.

Argayash is close to the Mayak nuclear facility, infamous as the source of one of the worst nuclear disasters in history in 1957. The isotope is not a naturally occurring one, however and the spike could not have occurred spontaneously.

But, after working his way back to full fitness, Londoner Haye had agreed a money-spinning pay-per-view return against Bellew at the same venue just eight days before Christmas.

"I'm gutted that the rematch with David has been postponed, both for myself but more for the fans", said Bellew.

Bellew stopped compatriot Haye in the 11th round when they met in March and the sold-out rematch was scheduled for December 17.

"I would like to apologize to Tony, his family and his training team, as well as all our fans who have been left disappointed", Haye said.

He was asked on Twitter: "any truth in the rumours that #hayebellew2 is off due to an injury to David Haye?" "I've been exclusively focused on this fight and it's extremely frustrating that I couldn't finish 2017 with just my ring performance doing the talking".

"I couldn't wait to get back in the ring".
