Promoter Eddie Hearn through some subtle jabs at his fighter’s opponent today at their press conference ahead of their May 5th showdown.
Haye was in relaxed form today with most of the verbal jabs coming his way from Bellew and more subtly, from Bellew’s promoter Eddie Hearn.
Hearn asked Haye today:
“It comes down to desire and heart. When the going gets tough on May 5th I feel there is only one winner. I just don’t know how much David Haye wants it. He’s a brilliant fighter but deep down when it really gets tough… He’s got a great life. He’s promoting now. He’s got a nice business. He’s got some good fighters. Joe Joyce over there, how are you doing Joe? I just don’t know if the heart still exists. If the desire still exists. The same desire that he had in the gym to become world champion all those years ago.”
Haye appears to be very lean already months out from the rematch. Desire won’t be a problem you’d have to think.
He’ll be hell-bent on setting the record straight against Bellew.
