“I know he [Haye] was training yesterday morning with a corporate day for Park Plaza, training fine. So I was a bit taken aback by it. So I spoke to the team and they said absolutely no problem,” confirmed Hearn in an interview with IFL.tv.
Bellew-Haye 2 Is Still On Despite Injury Rumours Says Hearn and Haye
Sky Sports, the main broadcasting partner for the fight, had contacted Haye and the former world champion denied all rumours of an injury.
“Then Sky then spoke to David Haye and said – oh we’ve seen this and he said – absolutely not true. I’m 100 per cent ready to go December 17th. It’s on,” told Hearn.
The promoter even contemplated if Haye is putting out rumours himself just to play prefight mind games with Bellew.
