Watch: Tony Bellew responds to ‘The B**** from Bermondsey’
WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew has given a candid response to an Instagram video posted by compatriot David Haye on Tuesday.
Bellew is hoping to secure the first defense of his green belt. But failing that, a non-title catchweight clash with Haye on the back of his career-best win over Ilunga Makabu.
‘The Bomber’ took to his social media account himself on Wednesday. He made his thoughts known on what would be a massive event in the UK.
In the clip, the 33-year-old labels Haye ‘The Bitch from Bermondsey’ and asks the former cruiserweight king to “meet him in the middle” for a massive UK battle.

A weight of around 210 would seemingly be the mark to make the fight as Haye now campaigns at 220 pounds plus since his comeback from a four-year absence.
‘The Hayemaker’ has defeated Mark de Mori and Arnold Gjergjaj this year as he embarks on a bid to regain the world heavyweight title and is penciled in to meet Shannon Briggs at the O2 Arena in September.
