The 36 year-old battles current WBC cruiserweight title holder Bellew on March 4 at The O2 Arena in London in a grudge match born out of a clear distain between the British pair.
Plenty of banter has been thrown back and forth, although most of it has a hateful tone that will only be settled once the two punchers trade blows at the UK capital.

Haye says he’s hitting harder than ever, and if that’s the case, Bellew could be in for a tough night given the fact that the Liverpool man has never before campaigned in the top division.
Odds with the bookmakers firmly favour a Haye stoppage and it’s now up to Bellew to prove the Londoner wrong when the first bell goes in just under eight weeks time.
