Former World champions David Haye and Tony Bellew will clash in a Heavyweight blockbuster at the O2 in London.
Former two-weight World champion Haye returned from a three and a half year absence from the ring in January at the O2 with a first round KO win over Mark De Mori, following that in the same venue in April with another KO over Arnold Gjergjaj. The Hayemaker has dominated the ring for over a decade, crowned the Cruiserweight King, unifying the division in March 2008 with a fine win over Enzo Maccarinelli again at the O2.
