David Haye has compared Tony Bellew's win over him in March to "robbing a bank" and predicted a revenge victory in December.

The heavyweight pair have agreed a rematch after Bellew won their original fight with an 11th-round stoppage.

Haye, 36, said Bellew's triumph was akin to him securing his family by stealing a fortune.

But Bellew said: "I didn't rob a bank - I got in the boxing ring and punched him senseless then I went home."

He added: "On 17 December I will turn up and I will win again."

Former WBA heavyweight champion Haye needed surgery following the defeat by the 34-year-old, and has since split with trainer Shane McGuigan to join Cuban coach Ismael Salas.

The Londoner questioned Bellew's motivation for their rematch after he reportedly earned £2.8m from their first encounter.

"People rob banks to secure their family," Haye said.

"Would you go back to rob that same bank again? Is your hatred so bad for the clerk behind the desk that you need to do it again?

"I know in my heart deep down he still doesn't rate me. He still thinks he'll blast me and walk through me.

"If anything, this fight is not going to go as long as it did last time. David Haye's career ends on 17 December."
