David Haye and Tony Bellew are expected to agree a deal for a rematch fight at the 02 Arena in London on Sunday December 17th, according to a report from Riath Al-Samarrai of The Mail.

The duo fought back in March with Bellew coming out victorious, although the fact that Haye suffered a bad Achilles injury mid-fight did take away from the spectacle.

Talks about a possible rematch seemed to have come to a halt but it looks like a deal has been agreed for both fighters to step into the ring on a rare Sunday evening show.

The build up to the first fight between the English duo was dominated by plenty of bad blood, with insults flying left, right and centre.

The public really bought into the rivalry and the show was a huge success as Haye made £4.2million and Bellew made £2.8m.

The likelihood is that the purse for the rematch will be closer to 50/50, with official confirmation set to come in the next few days.
