    Haye comfortably. Hope he sparks out that bellend.

    Haye is the better boxer and I was convinced he'd win.

    However his training seems to have been a bit Lennox Lewis pre his 1st fight with Rahman and that didn't turn out so well. If he's not 100% and gets sloppy or caught then who knows.

    Couple of total fuds and I think Bellew has him rattled a bit. Haye should be too good though.

    Haye within 3 or 4 rounds, will have a cheeky wee bet on a Haye KO in the 3rd and although he is coming across as not giving a flying one, there's no reports from the camp of him taking training or his opponent lightly. I think the whole act towards the media is exactly that, an act, and he will be more than ready to carry out a brutal demolition from the 1st bell. Bellew has a punchers chance.

    Haye easy I think. Bellew cant take a punch at cruiserweight never mind at heavy!

    I really can't see bellew getting anything out of this at all I do get what he saying about haye being a small heavyweight/big cruiserweight and them being the same height.
    But adonis Stevenson absolutely destroyed bellew he was roughly 3.5 stone lighter than haye.plus haye has always had great power and speed.even if he is done I'd imagine he'll at very least still pack the power.

    So haye inside 3 rounds for me.

    Think Haye will win this easily, smarter, naturally bigger, far harder and quicker to the punch. Bellew will never have been hit as hard. I struggling to see any advantage Bellew might have.

    Like our beloved football and sport in general though, you just never know.

    I really can't stand David Haye, I'm not a huge fan of Tony Bellew either although I hope he wins.

    Haye comes across as completely insincere, arrogant and very condescending.

    This whole war of words between them is all for show IMO and to make money. The pair of them will be laughing all the way to the bank.

    Haye showed his true character by referring to Bellew's fans as "******s" the other day.

    Nice guy.

    If Belew is still in the fight beyond the mid rounds it could get interesting but I doubt he will be. Haye tko4.

    Decent places in Edinburgh to watch this? Also what time is it likely to start?

    Footlights on Spittal Street is decent for boxing. Big screen, pool table and pints are pretty good.

    They also show German football all weekend but that's an irrelevant aside.

    This fight could prove to be a total mismatch to be quite honest. The build up and the verbals (and punches lol) that have been exchanged have sold this fight. Brook Spence is the PPV fight I'm looking forward to.

    Absolute mismatch and ridiculous its on PPV considering the undercard is crap. Ohara Davies and Derry Matthews is the chief support ffs.

    Haye will destroy Bellew as soon as he wants , I woudnt be surprised if it's over in round 1. Tony Bellew would be knocked out by someone like Mairis Breidis if he was fighting in the lower weight class of Cruiserweight never mind a 16 stone plus David Haye.

    Also , don't think for a second that Haye hasn't trained hard for this fight. You don't get to 9 percent body fat and the physique he displayed at the weigh in without a serious training camp behind you. His chief sparring partner for the fight was Bryant Jennings who is arguably a top 10 heavyweight and someone who himself would be a favourite to beat Bellew. He is also trained by Shane McGuigan who is a top coach very much into sports science so his conditioning will be absolutely spot on.

    You can get 5/1 on Bellew to win when it should be atleast double that.

    Can't see Bellend lasting more than a couple of rounds, three at most.

    an advantage, then he should be."

    Closer the fight gets the more I see a Haye stoppage. He looked in great shape at the weigh in.

    Bellew was stopped at light heavyweight. David Haye is a notoriously hard puncher and stopped a few guys who had previously been seen as having strong chins.

    Haye inside 7.

    I want Bellew to win but it looks like it's all a game plan to get Haye and Joshua in the ring.

    Joshua has chipped in with a couple of comments recently about not liking Haye so it looks like that rivalry is already building.

    Seems to be turning into a WWE-esque type scenario with storylines and results already pre determined which will all build towards one super fight.

    Haye is a dick and I hope he runs out of steam but like I said, I fear it's all story building aimed at making Anthony Joshua the biggest sports star on the planet!

    Bellew has been duped by Haye into thinking he's been on a jolly in Miami on a yacht. All the footage of him barely breaking sweat during his on deck "work outs" and a few selfies in a nightclub have really done the trick. All very calculated by Haye & McGuigan Now he's seen him at close quarters at the weigh in, Bellew has changed his tune and is drooling over his physique and is now claiming he's going run out of steam cos he too ripped. The one thing I do agree with from Bellew is that this is the first time in a few years that a Haye opponent will actually try to punch back.

    I predict Haye will play with him a while then blow him away pretty much whenever he fancies.

    Haye should win, but I've got a sneaky feeling that he might not have the hunger if it turns into a bit of a war. Bellew is a tough customer and he'll get in close with Haye and try and rough him up early on. Either way I can't wait for it.

    Problem I see with that is Bellew can be very reckless coming forward. If he tries to get in close and is careless and Haye catches him clean then he's in big trouble.

    I totally agree with that, but I still think that's the way Bellew will approach it it. If he tries to fight Haye at length he'll get picked off.
    On a completely unrelated matter, last year at Cheltenham I was out having a beer on the balcony in the Istabraq bar which overlooks the entrance and a guy approached in a bright blue suit. I said to my mate there's Don Goodman. I shouted how you doing Don, he looked up and gave me the stare, at that point I realised it was David Haye. I felt like a right tit. I've never heard the end of it.

    Lee Selby on now,in my not so expert opinion I've always thought Selby is/was a class act.footwork and movement always looks class.but he doesn't have much luck in getting big fights doesn't seem well promoted to me.I believe this is last fight with matchroom be interesting to see where goes next.
