The rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye is set for Sunday, December 17th at the O2 Arena in London. Matchroom confirmed the booking via press release, also announcing that tickets go on sale this upcoming Wednesday.
With the bizarre circumstances of their first fight and the sheer enmity involved, a second go-round seemed inevitable, but there are no sure things in this ridiculous sport of ours.
Haye claims to have completed his rehab after Achilles surgery, but it’s still a quick turnaround for him. Bellew is confident that his foe won’t be able to maintain the torrid pace the pair set for more than a few rounds. It’s a fight with plenty of good stories around it, at the very least, and the Sunday date means it shouldn’t interfere with any other big events.
