David Haye sends message to Tony Bellew

David Haye didn't appreciate the way Tony Bellew called him out after winning a vacant cruiserweight title, and said that Bellew can be added to hit list along with Shannon Briggs if he wants.

Apparently David Haye doesn't care to be called "Fish Eyes" nor "The B*tch from Bermondsy" as newly-crowned WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew likes to refer to him. After winning the WBC title over the weekend, Bellew called out Haye to make a return to cruiserweight to get a piece of him instead of fighting "clowns." Obviously it didn't take long for Haye to catch wind of Bellew's comments, who then took to Instagram to respond to Bellew.

David Haye is set up to take on Shannon Briggs next, whose incessant trolling of Haye managed to pay dividends and landed him a big fight he's been long looking for. And now Bellew has been put on notice that he can get in line for a shot at Haye as well.
