DAVID HAYE has adopted a new humble attitude to his latest pre-fight build-up – but opponent Tony Bellew is not taken in.

Haye, who suffered an Achilles injury in losing to Bellew last March and then had to postpone their December rematch, again through injury, will take on his old foe on May 5 at The O2.

The build-up to their last bout was marred by unsavoury outburts and vicious insults from Haye, so this time the 37-year-old insists he is taking a more Zen-like approach.
