David Haye’s trainer, Shane McGuigan says Tony Bellew will be in for the shock of his life, if he thinks his boxer has been taking it easy in Miami.
Haye has been training in Miami for his March 4 heavyweight fight against fellow Brit, Tony Bellew at the O2 Arena.
Bellew, who has been undergoing rigorous training at Coldwell’s gym in Rotherham has criticised Haye’s training regime.
Bellew said: “While he is posing in the sun, I am grafting in the cold.”
However, Haye’s trainer Shane McGuigan had a warning for his boxer’s rival and told Sky Sports News HQ: “His yacht was obviously a luxury but David has been around luxury all of his professional career so that’s been nothing different.
“If Bellew reads into that then he’ll be in for a big fright on fight night. David’s in fantastic shape. When’s he’s happy, he’s training well.
“That’s why we went to Miami, to make sure he’s happy. He had no distractions and it’s easy to lead a healthy life in Miami. His eating was good and he was training well.”
“He’s had a three-and-a-half year lay-off and your body adapts to what you’re doing,” he added.
“He’s been enjoying his time off and down time with his family. It’s taken some time to get his weight down but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s lighter than Bellew.
“You have one guy who is an athlete at that weight and a guy who’s carrying excess weight. We shall see what happens.”
