British boxing champion David Haye has triggered a bitter rivalry with fellow British boxer Tony Bellew after he branded him a coward.
This is coming just as both fighters prepare for a face off in their much anticipated heavyweight grudge fight.
The two English rivals began trolling each other shortly after the confirmation of their big domestic clash set to take place on March 4.
Their recent verbal confrontation happened live on Sky Sports News as both fighters seem to harbor contempt for each other. During their verbal exchange, Haye said:
“He’s a coward, he realizes what is going to happen on the night. I’m going to destroy him absolutely. It’s all big talk before the fight.
“Now the fight is signed, I can already feel him cowering away because he knows the task at hand is too big, too strong, too fast, too powerful, and he’s going to end up knocked spark out.”
