David Haye and Tony Bellew were physically kept apart at a heated news conference for Saturday’s heavyweight clash at London’s O2 Arena.

The British pair entered through separate corridors at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool on Monday and were divided by security for the traditional pre-fight face-off.

Both boxers and their camps exchanged non pleasantries backed by a noisy pro Bellew crowd and things got rather tasty. British Boxers was there to capture the drama.
