David Haye (28-2, 28 KOs) has told WBC 200lb titlist Tony Bellew that he is up for a meeting, but only if it takes place at heavyweight. Haye told Sky Sports that a fight between the two is feasible if the demand is there and Bellew moves up a weight.

“First off, his performance was first-class,” he said. “He beat a good friend of mine, a guy I’ve sparred with who is tough. No one has dealt with Flores like that.

Bellew has dynamite in his fists, but he took a few big shots in process—his defence looks leaky. He makes plenty of noise, the public wants it, so if the public demands it then nine times out of 10 it happens.”

“I’m a heavyweight,” he said when asked if he could make 200lbs. “I was last a cruiserweight in 2008. If he wants to come up to heavyweight, and the demand is there, then it is a one or two round job—I reckon I’d put him down with a jab.”

Haye is penciled in for a December 10 fight; he was asked if Bellew could be in the frame yet wants to take a slice of the heavyweight titles following Tyson Fury’s abdication. “Depending on where the titles lay is where my next fight will happen,” he said. “If people want me to knock Bellew out then I can schedule a fight for a few weeks afterwards—it is an easy night for me.”
