Bellew keen to dominate Haye

Tony Bellew says he plans to dominate Saturday's rematch with David Haye.
 

The pair meet at London's O2 Arena for the second instalment of their well-publicised rivalry, and 37-year-old Haye has admitted that another loss could jeopardise his career.

Last year, Bellew beat his British rival in 11 rounds but the result was compromised by the former WBA Heavyweight champion tearing his Achilles in the middle of the fight.

He's getting dealt with, simple as that.

He has since undergone surgery to repair the area but doubts remain over his durability with him having to postpone their original rematch last December due to a shoulder injury.

It will be the first time either man has fought since March 2017 but Bellew, who is 11/5 to win, has had no such fitness issues and clearly took plenty of confidence from last year's win.

Speaking at Wednesday's public workout, 'The Bomber' promised to dominate his opponent before knocking him out when the right moment arises.

"Saturday night, you will see me knock out one of the greatest fighters this country has ever produced," the 35-year-old told Sky Sports. "There will be no shaking hands afterwards and he's getting dealt with, simple as that.

"We exchanged on my terms last time, we traded punches when I saw fit. I have the better legs in this fight. I'm in control and I will be again.

Bellew is 9/2 to triumph by KO, TKO, or Disqualification, while Haye can be backed at 8/11 in the same market.

The Londoner can be backed at 4/11 to win the fight.
