DAVID HAYE has questioned Tony Bellew’s motivation ahead of their December 17 rematch, believing the money the Liverpudlian has earned means he has no need to fight on.

Bellew was paid the biggest purse of his career when they first fought in March, and revealed that after his unexpected win he seriously considered retirement.

Former world heavyweight champion Haye has earned even more than his rival during a decorated career, but insists that unlike the younger fighter, he is still active to prove he is the world’s best.
