TONY BELLEW and David Haye have reopened their war of words.
The rivals, who will meet in a rematch on December 17, have made it clear they will never get on as they’re just too different.
Haye admitted that Bellew was not “my type of guy” – and Bellew shot back by stating his “fame hungry” rival is not a nice person.
Londoner Haye cut a very different figure on the podium on Wednesday, acting cool and calm.
In the build-up to the first fight their ugly clashes had led to a £25,000 fine for Haye, after he said on morning TV he would “cave” Bellew’s head in.
But Bellew was having none of it – saying that Haye’s demeanour is all an act and that he’ll show his “true colours” between now and fight night.
The Liverpudlian said: “It’s killed him doing that.
“That’s the first time in his whole career that he’s come into a press conference and been humble.

STRAIGHT TO THE BANK
Haye questions Bellew’s motivation – comparing him to a BANK ROBBER
Glenn McCrory says David Haye is ‘deluded’ if he thinks he can return to the top
“He was biting his lip, tapping his leg, his trainer was [grabbing his leg] under the table. He was itching to bite.
“He had one little slip up. He admitted he didn’t rate me before, and he doesn’t rate me now.”
Bellew added: “I don’t want to say nasty things but he’s not a nice person, as a person, but he’s a brilliant fighter.
“Don’t detract from the type of person he is, he’s an outstanding fighter.”
Bellew, who is considering retirement after the fight, was questioned by Haye over his motivation for the fight.
The 36-year-old even compared Bellew to a BANK ROBBER.
But Bellew is motivated by the fact he likes fighting – and said Haye was desperate for fame and money.
“You see that prima donna there, he needs money. He’s fame hungry,” said Bellew.
“He’s a different person to me. I hate fame, I hate the intrusion of privacy. Fame doesn’t pay.
“I can’t wait to walk away from it. You won’t see me on TV – unless they offer me stupid amounts of money, then [his girlfriend will] make me go,” he joked.
“I hate it. I don’t like not being to go out with my mates and have a laugh. Or have a good dance or do press ups in the middle of the dancefloor for a laugh.
“I don’t like sitting with my family at the dinner table and people coming up for a picture while I’m eating my food.
“I’m very honoured and humbled by it and amazed people want a picture with me.
“[Haye] loves it.
“He turns up to every event possible. He’d turn up to the opening of an envelope.
“He loves it, that’s him, we’re two totally different people.”
