Bellew-Haye rematch targeted for December

It looks like Tony Bellew and David Haye just might have another go in a few months.

Well, Tony Bellew may not be lining up to face Andre Ward after all. A report from WBN and some other outlets suggest that Bellew is currently hashing out a deal to fight David Haye in a rematch that could be announced as soon as this week.

Bellew of course fought Haye in March and scored a big upset win after Haye basically obliterated his achilles in the fight and continued on as a severely compromised fighter. That's not Bellew's problem though, and Bellew is now looking to capitalize on that win to earn him some more concessions (and of course money) for this targeted sequel.

If this fight does in fact come off, it'll be interesting to see if Haye can get back to form in just nine months — well I suppose even sooner than that since he'll presumably have to have a training camp. Achilles can be tough, tough injuries to fully recover from and it's not like Haye is some spring chicken.

But, for now, we'll keep you updated on this whole situation as the news breaks.
