David Haye, Tony Bellew both lighter for heavyweight rematch

David Haye, Tony Bellew both lighter for heavyweight rematch

David Haye weighed in around 10 pounds heavier than rival Tony Bellew ahead of their eagerly awaited rematch, but both were lighter than for their first bout.

Speaking to Sky Sports News after the weigh-in on Friday afternoon, Bellew said: "The scales were heavy, but no problem".

"Weight's just a number".

"I just want to get in there and get away from the circus, to close my eyes and it's Sunday".

"Well someone please show me who I was facing a year ago on March 4 because I'm pretty sure it was him, with those muscles, those fantastic abs, that handsome, sharp haircut and those fantastic pecs".

"With those muscles, those handsome abdominals, that sharp haircut, those big pectorals - I'm sure it was him!"

Author and filmmaker Ben Anderson gives a detailed account of a 16-year-old Haye, while fellow professional boxer Anthony Fowler speaks about how he looks up to Bellew.

Haye promised a much improved performance, dismissing any doubts about his fitness after overcoming bicep and Achilles injuries.

In response, Haye said: "I knew my weight would be lighter, I feel healthy", said Haye. I can do things I couldn't do for many years.

Will they both come in lighter than last time? He really believes that the real David Haye didn't hit me last time.
