The much-anticipated rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye will take place on Saturday May 5th at The O2 arena, London, Live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Haye and Bellew were set to renew hostilities on December 17th, however, the fight was postponed after David Haye injured his bicep in a freak accident.

"After my freak accident down a stairwell last month I was heartbroken not to give everyone the ending to 2017 I wanted," said Haye.

"Since then I had to accept the cards I had been dealt, remain positive and focus on factors which are within my control; rehabilitation and rescheduling the fight."

Tony Bellew commented: I’m pleased to get a new date in the diary and I look forward to giving boxing fans a great night on May 5.

"To be honest I was looking forward to a great victory in December and a relaxing family break over Xmas but my mind is still very much on this fight and I will punish him for that.
