The Haye vs Bellew rematch was made official today with both men set for another grudge match in late 2017 after their first fight earlier this year.
The London and Liverpool natives first boxed earlier this year in March when Bellew sprang an upset stoppage win over the previously favored Haye.
Following the bout, both men revealed injuries were sustained in the contest. Neither have boxed since. Until now, that is.
David Haye confirmed the news a short time ago on Twitter that the rematch is on for December 17th at the 02 Arena:

Haye/Bellew II makes a little bit of sense as it was an unfair match up from round 2…
