Wilder, Bellew, Haye set to be part of Wembley broadcast team
WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will be joined by divisional rivals Tony Bellew and David Haye on the upcoming Sky Sports Box Office broadcast team.
Wilder had already been announced as analyst for the Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko clash this weekend in London and will now have Bellew and Haye for company.
“After the announcement that charismatic WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will be part of our ringside team for the huge Wembley showdown between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, we are delighted to add two more of boxing’s biggest names to the party,” said Sky Sports Head of Boxing Adam Smith before licking his lips at the prospect of Haye and Bellew butting heads on the back of their O2 Arena brawl in March.
“Tony Bellew and David Haye will come face to face again as both join our Sky broadcast for their outspoken views, engaging analysis and plenty of simmering tension.
“We expect fireworks in the ring between AJ and WK – and maybe a few sparklers in the night air on our presenting stage outside it.”
Bellew, who recently announced his intention to keep fighting, is not expecting to get too close to Haye when the pair fulfil their duties on Saturday night.
“If he approaches me and that’s the way he wants to go, then so be it,” said Bellew.
“I don’t think I will be allowed too close to him, to be honest, we’ll see.”
