David Haye: I want to do maximum physical damage to Tony Bellew

There can be no doubt, David Haye punches like a mule and whether Tony Bellew has enough in his locker to make this fight truly interesting remains to be seen but my own expectation is that the tough scouser will certainly not go down without a fight.

As one of the biggest names in British boxing, Haye's comments have hogged the headlines over the past few weeks while Bellew has continually labelled him a "disgrace". "I'm a world champion". "You're going to see the most destructive heavyweight on the planet". Your head wasn't created to be punched like that.

"I haven't felt this passionate about a fight before in my whole life..." Kell Brook got his eye socket ruptured, if [Gennady] Golovkin was to say before "I'm going to rupture his eye socket" people would say it's bad, but he goes and does it and gets paid millions for it.

Since then there have been injury problems, shoulder surgery, inactivity and only two fights against poor opponents who did not last three rounds between them. Indeed with Bellew earning 2.5 million for this fight, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand why he chose to go after Haye and not defend his WBC title in the division below.

Bellew is a Marmite character. you either like him of you loathe him; an arrogant Scouse big-mouth or a family man with a deep knowledge of his chosen sport. It's only after the event that people look and think actually 'who called for this?'. Bellew will be moving up in weight for the second time in four years.

Joel Embiid, battling knee swelling and soreness, sent for MRI
Simmons fractured his foot on September 30, the final day of pre-season training camp. Joel Embiid won't hit his target return date of Friday night against the Knicks.

Bellew is a puncher and Haye was floored by cruiserweights Carl Thompson, Lolenga Mock and Jean-Marc Mormeck in his earlier days.

Haye also dismissed any notion that Bellew - a huge betting underdog - could win. I think it's too risky.

But once it does I feel Haye will get through on the back of his clever movement and produce a fight-ending shot.

Last week I got the chance to work with Haye's trainer Shane McGuigan ahead of his fight with Tony Bellew on Saturday.
