David Haye's promoter Adam Moralee has become the butt of the internets' joke over the past few days, after his cringe-inducing press conference rant went viral. The promoter's speech was likened to that of Will McKenzie, the fictional character from Channel 4 sitcom The Inbetweeners.

And The Inbetweeners theme was continued today night after James Buckley, the actor who plays Jay from the show, crashed their press conference, handing Moralee a briefcase and some glasses in reference to Will McKenzie's in-show moniker of 'briefcase wanker'.

It's clear Bellew didn't quite know what to make of Buckley's cameo as the actor asked the Liverpudlian to 'pick on someone his own size'.
The stunt did draw some attention online for the weekend's rematch:

However, Twitter user Somers78 was not impressed with the publicity stunt:
Get Jay from inbetweeners to make some headlines as ppv numbers are down. ?

Bellew and Haye will face off this Saturday's rematch in the O2 in London, which is live on Sky Box Office.
