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 a first defence of his green belt – or even 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 to make his own thoughts known on what would be a huge 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 pencilled in to meet Shannon Briggs at the O2 Arena in September.
