“I can’t see why Haye would be lining up his excuses early, because he knows he is going to retire after this fight. He’s just playing some mind games, but he’s failed. I’ve got nothing to say on the matter – if he wants to pull out, then pull out. I’ve got a lot of options on the table, so if he wants to pull out of the fight, I’ll face Joseph Parker, no problem,” wrote Bellew.
The Parker match up has been discussed in the media and among fans since last summer. The WBO champion was a clear target for Bellew after his victory over Haye.
“I love the thought of becoming heavyweight champion of the world, so my preference will be Parker,” told Bellew back in June.
In his Metro column, Bellew also gave an update from his training camp, which at the moment seems to be a bit of a struggle since Bellew is having a cold.
