It was, in all honesty, only a matter of time before somebody from the British Boxing Board of Control felt it necessary to bring some common sense to the toxic verbal sparring that has been going on ahead of the clash, at the 02 Arena in London, this Saturday night between David Haye and Tony Bellew.

After a few weeks of trading insults it now appears that following the press conference held in Liverpool, on Monday, the BBBoC have had enough.

It seems that Haye calling Bellew?s vociferous supporters f*****g r*****s hasn?t gone down well with the BBBoC with the chief, Robert Smith, stepping forward to warn of impending action with Smith remarking to the media,

?We?ll get the fight out of the way and do what we deem necessary. It?s not a very good term and shouldn?t be used. We are very disappointed with this behaviour.

?There had been lots of comments around the fight already and now this.

?We take all these matters very seriously.?


Indeed they should, Haye overstepped the mark on Monday and, in my opinion, has been walking a tight-rope for too long with his threats to finish Bellew?s career and stick him in hospital.

As to what punishment is handed out, we can but wait and see.
