Former WBA Champion David Haye made the day for the head-to-head press conference with Tony Bellew in their promotion for the match this March 4, 2017. He threw the first fist to his opponent, an unlikely display losing self-control.

The heated press conference indeed became a highlight on the event even before the boxing match. Haye also threw foul language to Bellew's camp including trainer David Coldwell and boxing promoter Eddie Hearn.

According to Independent, the boxing champ already made the same scene last 2012 when he scuffled with his opponent Dereck Chisora in their press conference. It is thought that Haye always displays this behavior every time he gets into public appearance in promoting his fights.

The two of them were immediately drag away from each other by security details present and brought to a separate room. Cursing and heated arguments went on in the next 20 minutes but it eventually ended. 

Bellew allegedly said that Haye is financially frustrated and having a hard time negotiating with him. "You could be fighting for the heavyweight championship of the world, but you're fighting me," Bellew said. He further added "And you know why? For the money. You're skint."

In related news, the David Haye VS Tony Bellew Tickets are declared sold out just 55 minutes from its release. As of today, tickets that purchased from the original source are found on ticket reselling websites with a much inflated prices.

This Heavyweight Boxing Showdown is a match anticipated boxing that comes March 2, 2017 will flood O2 Arena, according to Daily Mail. Boxing fans will line to get those tickets on their hand and promoters on a debate why this is happening.

Manypeople wants to watch this boxing match next year. BBC Sports will take part of the event and eventually will features this live on TV.
