The negotiations regarding the rematch were long and according to promoter Eddie Hearn, this has been ‘the hardest fight ever’ for him to put together.
Though, Bellew has already promised Haye all the perks should a third fight happen.
“I’ve given him the upperhand if there’s a third fight, but I’m telling you now, there will not be a third fight. I will end his career. Once he loses again to me, his career is then over. There is no two ways about that. So I gave him all the little options and obligations that he wanted,” said Bellew in a Betsafe podcast.
