Floyd Mayweather had no idea David Haye was still fighting

Boxing can be an unusual sport, even at the best of times and here we have a fight where despite having a clear favourite (Haye is 1/6 odds on to win), there remains an air of unpredictability about what outcome we can expect to see, especially given the variety of factors that may well influence the outcome of this fight; Has David Haye really recovered from the shoulder surgery that kept him out of the game for nearly four years?

It may not last long as both can punch, but while it does we can expect plenty of drama and perhaps even a small portion of controversy. The first one stuns him and the next three or four finish him off. "For the first time in my life, I'm facing someone who needs a pound note more than me".

"I'm training to not punch his head but punch through his head".

"The fight's gonna be interesting early on, but think back to when have you ever seen a fight where Bellew didn't get hit with hard shots - it never happens and that's the problem he'll have in this fight". "I didn't know he was still fighting".

"Although he can get a big paycheque, it's not going to be worth the damage I'm going to do to him".

You know what I love about him is that he thinks out of the box, he seems to absolutely love what he is doing. Jackman also confessed that he got the idea of Logan at 4am in the night. "Kohli is awesome .

Haye, who boasts an 87 per cent knockout ratio, still insists he can make a mark in the heavyweight division and certainly a fight with fellow Briton Anthony Joshua somewhere down the line does make some appeal. People thought it was horrendous, but they tuned in to watch him. "He's a liar. A proven liar", Bellew told Sport Joe UK.

Haye also dismissed any notion that Bellew - a huge betting underdog - could win. We're the same size but I campaigned at heavyweight because I want the big challenge.

The trash talk will do no good to either man on Saturday, when David Haye and Tony Bellew finally get their hands on each other in the O2 Arena.

The call here is that the bad blood boils over early as Bellew tries to do what he can to hurt Haye right from the start. I don't think his crew realize his background.
