David Haye Injures Bicep – The much anticipated Tony Bellew vs David Haye rematch set for the 17th of December will not go down as planned due to a Haye injury.
The pair first met back on March 4th and in that bout Bellew pulled out the win with an eleventh round stoppage. Haye, a former two-division world champion who was returning after a five-year layoff, saw his comeback derailed.
The rematch had been set as the main event of Eddie Hearn and his Matchroom Boxing’s event at the O2 Arena in London. The fight was also set to air on the U.K.’s Sky Box Office service, Britain’s PPV service.
