Promoter Eddie Hearn and David Haye completely dismissed recent scaremongering reports from a ‘media source’ in the UK that the former world champion could pull out of a fight with Tony Bellew due to injury.
Hearn, speaking at the public workout to IFL TV, and Haye, talking as he was set to make his way to the media gathering, both stated the rumours were false ahead of this weekend’s fight.
Matchroom boss Hearn even went as far as calling them ‘b***ocks’ at The O2 Indigo.
The report first reared it’s ugly head on Wednesday morning and was then picked up by other sources until Haye eventually posted a picture of himself on Instagram braided up and ready for action.
Bellew was calm when commenting on the matter, which now seems to be in the past ahead of Thursday’s final press conference.
