Haye is unravelling a bit in the lead up to this fight.

Haye is also a huge favourite with the bookies.
I'm looking forward to it, but think Haye will be too quick. Bellew only needs one big punch though and his approach on Sky's 'gloves are off' upset Haye.

I can only see Haye winning this. I like both of them. Both gobby, but this is boxing and its getting the viewers.
I think Haye is Joshua's biggest worry. If he's on form, and broken tie free, he is a danger to anyone.

It was out of order, but I still think that punch Haye threw at one of the first press conferences impacted on Bellew.  He didn't even see it as it was so quick and I think Bellew knew then that he was in trouble.  He's been a lot more subdued after that and I think if Haye has got anything left in the tank he will stop him early on.

Haye was once world class, Bellew is nowhere near that. I think Haye needs to talk up the fight, not just because of cashing in, but because he needs to find that edge that was probably easier to find when you're younger and hungrier, when things come easier and there a less injuries to worry about.

Hoping Bellew will win, Haye is a disgrace to the sport of boxing. He has made vile comments to Bellew, such as crushing his skull in and that he will put him in hospital. Particularly in view of the recent death of the Scottish boxer Mike Towell following a fight and Nick Blackwell receiving serious head injuries following his defeat by Chris Eubank Jr.

I think Haye will win, but the longer the bout goes on, then Bellew may have a better chance of coming out on top.

Lets face it...they are both a pair of egotistical gobshites and they have both been talking disrespectful shite in the build up to this fight. I've never liked Bellew for those exact reasons in his previous fights so calling Haye a disgrace and disrespectful is very hypocritical from Bellew as he's done the same to other opponents with an added touch of ego.

It is what it is though...it is all talk whatever comes out of their mouths, and the real talking is done in the ring. Bellew is slow, ponderous and methodical...Haye is fast, strong and unpredictable.  Can't see this going any other way than a Haye win and silencing the scouse gobshite.

Bellew may also be tempted to retire after this big pay day so he can enjoy his retirement with his family.

If Haye wins, then it's only a matter of time until a fight with Joshua...then I'll be hoping Joshua silences Haye.

Joshua is a gentleman and a credit to the sport. You never see him bad mouthing his opponent, the bloke's got class, as a person as well as a boxer. Can't wait to see his fight with Klitschko, which I reckon he'll win and go onto to be one of our greatest ever heavyweights.

Right, I think Haye, but I've had a few bob on Bellew at 50/1 to win either in the 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th.

A win for Haye would put him back in the heavyweight mix and Bellew would just go back down to Cruiserweight, where he is a world champion.  A Bellew win would be the end of the road for Haye and would leave the former with a decision to make.

That is true...but a Bellew win looks extremely unlikely to me. Absolutely fairplay to him if he does manage to win though.

So Haye is approx 1st heavier than Bellew and looks in great condition. Bellew seems to be banking on Haye tiring with his extra weight in the later rounds...but will Bellew even make it past round 6 to find out? I really don't fancy his chances if Haye comes out all guns blazing in the early rounds.

I'm really curious to see what Haye is capable of.
