David Haye has been fined £25,000 by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) over his behaviour in the build-up to his bout with Tony Bellew.

The former world heavyweight champion graphically described injuries he hoped to inflict on Bellew in the run-up to March’s stoppage defeat by his rival.

Haye, 36, admitted his comments brought boxing into disrepute.

The board believes that Bellew’s behaviour improved after both fighters were warned days before the bout.
