DAILY SPORT EXCLUSIVE:
Bellew and Haye are familiar foes but gave me a once in a lifetime experience to walk Tony Bellew out to his press conference on #TeamDailySport behalf and interview David Haye’s protege Joe Joyce having held a grudge publicly before finally airing their grievances in the ring in March of last year.
Bellew was victorious, claiming an 11th-round TKO victory after the towel went in from his opponent’s corner.
But Haye had torn an Achilles tendon in the sixth round, an injury which changed the fight, and the mooted December rematch was postponed entirely after he needed biceps surgery after a freak accident.
However, he is now fighting fit and all appears well ahead of the May 5 showdown – which millions of boxing fans will be tuning in to watch.
Boxing events are notoriously difficult to predict in terms of timing because of the changeable nature of fights and their ability to end at a moment’s notice.
However, promoter Eddie Hearn has assured fans that ring walks are scheduled for 10.30pm, meaning fans can expect the main event to get underway at 10.45pm.
