Bellew vows to end Fury's career as Haye rematch set for May

Former cruiserweight world champion Bellew and ex-heavyweight title holder Haye had been due to renew their rivalry on December 17, only for the fight to be postponed after the latter tore his bicep in an accident on a stairwell.

Bellew claimed a stunning victory in their first meeting on March 4, defying the odds as Haye was rendered immobile by an ankle injury, leading his corner to throw in the towel in the 11th round.

Gloves back on for Haye

The 36-year-old Briton, who has 28 wins from 31 bouts, ruptured an Achilles tendon in his defeat to underdog Tony Bellew in London in March.

The former WBA heavyweight champion, who was advised by doctors to retire after he underwent major shoulder surgery in 2013, has had long periods out of the ring without ever officially calling it a day.

"I am going to fight again before the end of the year," the Briton told reporters at a news conference to announce the first event to be put on by his new promotion company Hayemaker Ringstar.

Haye gives Parker helping hand

 David Haye has defended Joseph Parker's claim to be a be a genuine world champion after meeting the Kiwi fighter in London.

Haye, a former world heavyweight champion, hosted Parker, the WBO world champion, at his state of the art London gym at the weekend.

The pair met by chance in a London street last Friday and spent four hours' together at the gym.

They had been consistently in touch through social media since early 2016 when Parker sought Haye's advice on how to beat Carlos Takam.
