David Haye has put it to Brit rival Tony Bellew to sign his portion of the deal following an agreement between the pair for a high-profile rematch.

A World Boxing News reported on September 6, Haye and Bellew had an agreement to rematch at The O2 Arena in December.

After further negotiations, Haye has now stated his willingness to accept the fight, which is set to take place on Sunday, December 17 live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Haye, 36, lost to Bellew back in March when suffering a serious achilles injury and has been offered the chance for revenge by Eddie Hearn.

Due to the size factor of both men, coupled with the heavyweight titles currently being tied up, a second fight was the obvious choice and could lead to a trilogy shoud Haye be successful before Christmas.

As Bellew took the spoils last time, ‘The Bomber’ can expect a bigger slice of the pie for ‘repeat or revenge’ – as Haye called it, provided the former WBC cruiserweight title puts pen to paper, as expected.

Retracting his post-fight embrace with Haye a few weeks back seems to have been the beginning of the reignition of hatred between the pair, who look set to start the ball rolling on a new build-up to what should be another massive affair in Greenwich, London.

The fact the contest is slated for a Sunday should have no bearing to the magnitute of the encounter as Bellew won his only world title to date on the day of rest at Goodison Park in 2016.
