David Haye has laid the blame squarely at the feet of Tony Bellew after the pair clashed during the final press conference before they meet in the ring on Saturday at the O2.

The 35-year-old Bellew accused "The Hayemaker" on trying to "put his lips on mine" during the face-off, and that is why he pushed the former heavyweight world champion.

David Haye's promoter Adam Moralee has become the butt of the internets' joke over the past few days, after his cringe-inducing press conference rant went viral.

Haye is now an ageing, injury-prone shadow of his former self.

No matter what way the fight goes, the question on everybody's lips is, who is going to win?

In recent interviews Haye has admitted going back to basics with new trainer Ismael Salas, who has trained 19 world champions, and adopting a better mindset, and not undervaluing his bitter rival this time. Haye would be looking at taking home huge paydays if he can get by Bellew and make those fights happen.

"Bomber" will try to fight the same way by countering his elder opponent. Before the first of those he had also fought less than eight rounds since 2012. "He probably thought, if I give him a shove that might get him".

I don't believe that Bellew will take any risks and will have even more confidence and self-belief in this rematch.

Bellew was so pleased with his career-defining win and subsequent bank balance that he may just have that little less goal to win this fight. The fight is just days away, and anticipation is rife. It was just me beating someone up.

"When it gets to that stage then I will stop, there will be no arguing". I just want to punch him.

"I don't care about him, he's irrelevant". "I've got a good boxing brain and I can adapt and adjust to any situation".
