Six weeks of training and up to 12 gruelling rounds are all that stand between Tony Bellew and the chance to achieve his aim of ending the career of David Haye.

Both fighters are in camp for the rematch and on Monday the Liverpool fighter posted a video of him practising his hooks and uppercuts ahead of the December 17 showdown.
