Tony Bellew believes he is getting himself in great shape ahead of his showdown with David Haye on 4th March.

Both men are in the midst of their respective training camps ahead of the grudge match at the O2 Arena in London.

With Haye out training in Florida, Bellew has said he is more than happy training in his beloved Merseyside and has not failed to take the opportunity to take another dig at his heavyweight opponent.

He told Sky Sports: "I'm in great shape and am ready to go. At the moment, I am 225lbs and my preparation is fantastic.

"While he [Haye] is posing in the sun, I am grafting in the cold, but it is what it is, we will see.

"I wouldn't change my location for the world, I am a proud Scouser and love going to Goodison Park every other week to watch Everton.

"I'm not a poser or one for the beach, especially in winter, I'm more of a family man who likes to be at home. I graft very hard and get that work done at home, I won't be posing for any Baywatch auditions any time soon."

Bellew is  4/1 to win the fight, while Haye can be backed at 1/6.
