But promoter Eddie Hearn says not so fast.
According to the Mail, the fight will take place on December 17th at the O2 Arena but Hearn gave an update and said that Bellew hasn’t signed anything yet.
“It’s taken a long time to get this rematch even discussed and now there is a real possibility it could be next. Nothing is signed yet but I’m catching up with Tony later this week,” said Hearn in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports.
Will there be an official announcement from Hearn and Bellew?
Here’s what the promoter had to say.
“You can cross your fingers for an announcement in the next week or so,” revealed Hearn.
Bellew has been linked to multiple fights this year. He’s had talks with Andre Ward and WBO World heavyweight champion Joseph Parker. He even called out UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
But at the end of the day, it was always somewhat evident that the rematch against Haye was the fight to make.
