Repeat For Tony Bellew; No Revenge for David Haye

Repeat For Tony Bellew; No Revenge for David Haye

The 37-year-old had suggested he would call time on his career if he did not win the second fight emphatically, and was floored three times before being stopped again by Bellew in the fifth round at The O2.

It was a quick flurry of knockdowns that steered the fight in Bellew's direction in the third, and again he tightened his grip with two more in the fifth.

With Bellew forcing the pace and applying the pressure, it was clear to see that Haye was struggling to match the pace and deal with the sharp and precise shots being thrown at him by the Merseyside fighter. Haye outjabbed Bellew in the first two rounds but Bellew remained calm through the first few minutes of the fight. Bellew then trapped Haye into a corner where he unleashed a flurry of punches which forced the referee to step in and put a halt to the contest, awarding Bellew the victory and putting an end to the rivalry. Tony Bellew boxed a great fight, and I didn't. I am a walking Super Series. "I'm an inside fighter. I need that mega star".

David Haye: "Bellew fought a very good fight and I didn't, simply. I wish Tony nothing but the best". You will all laugh and say I wouldn't have a chance, but I would knock Andre Ward out.

Haye insisted that he was in better condition for this fight, and Bellew expected an early onslaught. David Haye, the man who not so long ago was tasked with rescuing the heavyweight division, reeling, unsteady on his feet, being told he had had enough, on the end of yet another defeat. Bellew refused to rush in, but patiently waited to explode with his faster hands when Haye moved into desperate beserker mode.

The third round saw Haye continuing to lead with the jab with Bellew starting to avoid more and more of them and targeting the body of Haye himself with his own lead left. An ugly post-fight fracas with Dereck Chisora following his loss to Klitschko which resulted in Haye smashing a bottle into his fellow Englishman's face still leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

Haye took some severe punishment in the fourth round, and he seemed unable to avoid the punches. Moments later, it was a smashing left hook to the jaw that sent "The Hayemaker" to the canvas.
