Terms agreed for Haye, Bellew rematch

Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye says he has agreed terms for a rematch with Tony Bellew.

WBC cruiserweight world champion Bellew stopped Haye in the 11th round of their fight in March.

Haye suffered the third defeat of his career after injuring his achilles in the sixth round.

He needed surgery following the fight.

Haye made the announcement in a tweet: “It’s taken months of negotiating but teams have finally agreed all terms for Haye-Bellew 2. Will Bellew put pen to paper?”

No details have yet been confirmed by either promoter, but reports suggest the fight could be held on December 17 at London’s O2 Arena.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said he hoped the fight would be confirmed next week.

“Nothing is signed yet but I’m catching up with Tony later this week and you can cross your fingers for an announcement in the next week or so.”
