Tony Bellew: ‘The plan is to win at all costs’

TONY BELLEW believes one of the fundamental differences between himself and David Haye is his win-at-all-costs mentality as he plots to upset the odds once again on May 5.

Bellew was an overwhelming underdog going into last year’s first grudge encounter but was ahead on all three of the judges’ scorecards when he stopped his heavyweight rival in the 11th round at London’s O2 Arena.

The victory was slightly soured as Haye visibly struggled after rupturing an Achilles tendon midway through the fight, and the former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion is the favourite to gain revenge when they meet again at the same venue next Saturday.
