TONY BELLEW today revealed he wrote a will before his fight with David Haye earlier this month, such was his fear of being seriously hurt by the Londoner.

The Liverpudlian prevailed at the O2 Arena on March 4 when he stopped an injured Haye in the 11th round, producing one of the biggest upsets to ever occur in a British ring.

Before the fight, Haye made vile promises to leave Bellew hospitalised and that he intended to “cave his skull in,” and Tony was all too aware of the danger he faced that night.
