Tony Bellew's promoter Eddie Hearn says that he is "confident" the Liverpool-based fighter will defeat David Haye in the ring this Saturday.

Tony Bellew's promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that he is "confident" the Liverpudlian fighter will defeat David Haye when the pair meet in the ring this Saturday.

The bookmakers have been unable to separate the athletes ahead of the rematch, but Hearn insists that 'The Bomber' should be the favourite.

"Bellew was a huge underdog first time, now the bookies can't split them. I'm not sure I've been more confident going into a 50-50 fight," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.

"It's a wonderful career Haye has had but I believe it ends on Saturday night and Tony Bellew goes on to get the credit he deserves."

Bellew saw off an injury-stricken Haye in the original contest and a second defeat for the latter could prompt him to retire.
