Tony Bellew and David Haye go to war again on Saturday

Tony Bellew vs David Haye II Press Conference LIVE Updates from London

The final press conference for Tony Bellew's rematch with David Haye descended into chaos on Wednesday when it was crashed by actor James Buckley (who played Jay in The Inbetweeners).

Bellew came in at 15st 0lbs (210lbs) having weighed 15st 3lbs (213lbs) for their first fight last March.

Speaking after the weigh-in, Bellew told Sky Sports that Haye can not cope with what he has to offer. "Weight is just a number", he said.

"I just want to get in there and get away from the circus, to close my eyes and it's Sunday". Someone please show me who I was facing?

"I'm sure it was him on March 4 previous year and I'm sure it'll be him tomorrow night".

"The only thing that's getting dragged out is me hitting you with body shots".

Author and filmmaker Ben Anderson gives a detailed account of a 16-year-old Haye, while fellow professional boxer Anthony Fowler speaks about how he looks up to Bellew.

"I knew my weight would be lighter, I feel healthy", said Haye.

"My body has held up in training way better than before".

Bellew made no secret of his desire to come in a little bit lighter for the rematch as he felt he made a mistake last time around.

"People will see a prime David Haye, I'm ready for war!"

The fight is due to get underway at around 10pm on Saturday night.
