Bellew’s Trainer Confirms Rematch A Possibility – “Positive Talks Going On”

It looks like one of the most anticipated rematches in British boxing today is taking steps forward.

Tony Bellew and David Haye fought last March in a memorable clash that eventually ended in the Liverpudlian’s favour via knockout. There were hugs and kisses in the ring but very soon after things took a left turn back to the way they were.

The beef between Bellew and Haye was never gone and now it’s even bigger than ever before.

Promoter Eddie Hearn declared rematch talks ‘virtually dead’ weeks ago but recently different reports, including Hearn himself, have confirmed that there is still hope for a rematch.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Bellew’s trainer David Coldwell confirmed that negotiations are on going but an official ‘yes’ from both fighters is still far away.

“All I know is that obviously there are talks going on. They have been back and forth for quite a while now really I suppose, but I believe there are positive talks going on. It is one of those fights that are possible. Whether or not it gets finalised or not, I’ll believe it when I see it,” commented the trainer.

Alongside Haye, the WBC Emeritus Cruiserweight Champion certainly has other opponents in mind as well. Pound-for-pound number one boxer Andre Ward is on Bellew’s hit-list and so is WBO World heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker.

Coldwell said that they will go for the ‘best and most viable’ option. The trainer also talked about a fight date.

“There are other options, but we’re just seeing which one is the best one really. Best and most viable, that’s what you’ve got to look at,” told Coldwell.

Haye has confirmed that he will be fighting in December and sure enough – Bellew is also fighting in the same month confirmed by Hearn.

The boxing world waits if the two can finally agree to terms and fight again possibly in December.
