Watch Bellew vs. Haye II live on DAZN In Germany / TalkTalk TV in UK
DAZN has secured the rights to show the eagerly anticipated rematch between British boxers Tony Bellew and David Haye in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This comes just a few weeks after the heavyweight unification bout between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, and is the latest offering as part of DAZN’s extensive fight sports coverage. The fight, which takes place on May 5th from 7pm (CET) at London’s O2 arena, will be exclusively broadcast in Germany and Austria, and non-exclusively in Switzerland.
London native David Haye will be well known to boxing fans in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, having previously challenged Ukrainian legend Wladimir Klitschko to a unification bout back in 2011. Klitschko was a unanimous winner on that occasion, and with Haye now approaching the twilight of his career, he’ll be hoping that the rematch with Bellew presents an opportunity to bask in the glory of one final triumph. Both fighters will be looking to steer clear of injuries this time round, with Haye suffering a ruptured Achilles in the sixth round of last year’s clash, effectively restricting him to fighting on one leg. Bellew, who upset the odds to claim an 11thround stoppage after Haye’s corner threw in the towel, reportedly suffered a broken hand in the second round but still went on to claim the biggest victory of his career. DAZN subscribers will be able to follow the complete fight night offering, with coverage beginning at 7pm (CET).
DAZN is committed to showing the very best boxing fights from around the world. In the last 12 months, DAZN has been the home for some of the most-watched and most-talked about bouts globally, including Mayweather vs. McGregor, Joshua vs. Klitschko and most recently Joshua vs. Parker. The Bellew vs. Haye rematch is the latest instalment of the #DAZNfightclub series, offering fans an unrivalled build up to fight night. In the lead-up to the fight, DAZN will broadcast interviews with both boxers as well as the pre-fight press conference and the weigh-in on May 4th from 1pm (CET). Fans will also be able to catch-up with the fight on-demand for up to two weeks. All fights broadcast on DAZN come as part of a regular subscription, with no additional or pay-per-view costs incurred.

Joshua Buatsi added to Haye / Bellew 2 Undercard
Joshua Buatsi will fight for the sixth time as a pro on the undercard of the Heavyweight rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye on May 5 at The O2 in London, live on Sky Sports.
Buatsi has raced to 5-0 since turning over in July, ending three of those bouts inside the distance. The Team GB Rio Olympic bronze medal man tastes his first eight-rounder on his third appearance in the Greenwich venue, and the 25 year old talent managed by Anthony Joshua’s AJ BXNG is delighted to be back in action for the third time already in 2018.
“I’m happy to be back on the scene again on the big May 5 show,” said Buatsi. It’s my hometown in London which gives me that extra push to put on a display.
“It’ll be another entertaining fight I’m sure, people come with expectations which I can hopefully meet and surpass them. As AJ calls The O2 – ‘The Lions Den’ – it’ll be a fantastic atmosphere in there on fight night, I can’t wait to get back in there.”
Buatsi is part of a huge bill in London topped by the second instalment of the Bellew-Haye rivalry.
Paul Butler is looking to regain the IBF World Bantamweight title when he tackles undefeated Emmanuel Rodriguez for the vacant strap while Team GB Olympian Joe Joyce challenges Lenroy Thomas for the Commonwealth Heavyweight title in just his fourth pro fight.
Martin J. Ward defends his European Super-Featherweight title against WBA International champion James Tennyson, there’s a mouth-watering Super-Middleweight showdown between John Ryder and Jamie Cox, while Jordan Gill, Kody Davies and Ruqsana Begum also feature.
