David Haye does not believe Tony Bellew has the same desire he had back when they fought in March.
The heavyweight rivals held a press conference for the first time after their first fight in March, which the Hayemaker lost.
Haye insists there will be no war of words or bad blood between them ahead of their December 17 fight, but has also questioned his desire.
He told Sky Sports News: “We are tough guys and we are willing to put it on the line again and he’s doing it again yet he is a multi-millionaire now after the first fight, so is he going to have the same desire going into this rematch than he had for the first one?
“The first time around he said it to anyone that would listen, that his motivation was about securing the future of his family – like I did a few years ago.
“He has finally done that now, so he is going back into the ring, but what is his motivation?
“Well, he says he’s got a screw loose, well anybody who has a screw loose doesn’t know he’s got a screw loose.”
“I don’t know what his desire is. He says he doesn’t like boxing, he doesn’t like training, but I do, I love it.”
