Tensions boiled over as the final David Haye v Tony Bellew pre-fight press conference drew to a conclusion today at the Park Plaza, London. with Bellew shoving Haye when the pair went head-to-head.

Liverpudlian Bellew said earlier: "He looks good, his team are confident, like last time, but we will see.

"I just want to punch him. He would love nothing more than to knock every tooth out of my mouth, don't be fooled, the mask comes off on Saturday.

"We are going to go and Haye will have to do things he doesn't want to do. I will do anything to win and you will see.

"There's going to be no rematch this time, your career is over. What matters is that you end on Saturday night."

Haye insists he has learned from his mistakes as he aims to conclusively end his rivalry with Bellew at London's O2 Arena this weekend.

Haye was stopped by his heavyweight rival in the 11th round at the same venue 14 months ago before being fined by the British Boxing Board of Control for his behaviour in the build-up.

Earlier the Londoner, who had adopted a more measured and respectful approach this time around as he attempts to revive his career in this Saturday's rematch told SKY TV.

 "I've learned from my mistakes, inside and outside the ring. This time around it may not be as controversial. It will be a little more clinical,'' he said.

"I've kept my game-plan under wraps, but it's to do as much damage over the first six rounds. Then step it up.

"Being in there with him first time around, the shots that were missing, will be landing. I will give you the performance a lot of people expected first time around."
