Last night David Haye’s promotional company put on a night of boxing in the UK that was headlined by heavyweight prospect Joe Joyce.
The action was screened on free to air television in the UK as Haye looks to continue to build upon his promotional career for after he retires from boxing.
But he’s not retired just yet of course.
He has an upcoming rematch with Liverpool’s Tony Bellew that will be shown on US television on My 5th from the 02 Arena in London.
It will see the two duel once more after Bellew’s chock stoppage win first time round last year.
The pre-fight verbal jousts are flying already and last night as Haye was commenting on his fighter’s card, Bellew had this message for him:
I tuned in to see Joe Joyce and I’m having to listen to @mrdavidhaye do exactly what he accused @EddieHearn of doing! I’m trying to watch Joe David I don’t wanna know about your plans #ApplesAndPears #Embarrassing

The above reference from Bellew goes back to last year before their first fight when Haye accused Bellew’s promoter Eddie Hearn of being too much of an egotistical loud mouth who promotes himself instead of the boxers.
Hearn had the last laugh with Bellew winning last time out.
Time will tell what happens in the rematch.
