LONDON (AP) The heavyweight rematch between David Haye and Tony Bellew has been rescheduled for May 5.

The original date for the all-British rematch was Dec. 17, but it was postponed after Haye sustained an injury to his bicep.

Bellew stepped up from cruiserweight to win the first fight with an 11th-round stoppage of Haye, a former world heavyweight champion. Haye fought from the sixth round with an Achilles injury.
