Tony Bellew Drops David Haye Three Times, Stops Him In Fifth

Tony Bellew Drops David Haye Three Times, Stops Him In Fifth

In last night's sequel to their thrilling first encounter, Tony Bellew managed to put his rivalry with David Haye to bed as he knocked out his opponent in brutal fashion in round-five.

Now he can not give it up, with his love of the limelight greater more attractive than putting his feet up and enjoying his hard-earned millions.

"I've been waiting on a phone call from Eddie since the Froch situation happened, when he fought [Mikkel] Kessler for the second time", he said.

Haye, 37, said before the fight that he needed a spectacular win to prolong his career, and it seems unlikely that the former world heavyweight and cruiserweight champion will continue beyond this. I think that is what Bellew is looking for. "These two [Eddie Hearn and Dave Coldwell] think I'm insane but I know I can flatline him".

Promoter Eddie Hearn will try to tempt American pound-for-pound star Andre Ward out of retirement and to step up to cruiserweight for a fight in the United Kingdom later this year as one option for Bellew.

Bellew, of Liverpool, improved to 30-2-1, with 20 knockouts, while Haye, of London, dropped to 28-4.

Bellew nearly knocked down Haye in the fourth round, but managed to do so in the fifth round. I don't care who you are, you're going out.

"Tony boxed better than I did, plain and simple, and the better man won". The third round seemed to be anyone's round until Bellew scored a crucial knockdown with about 15 seconds remaining in the round. "It's a fight I like".

"I know he was watching, smiling and laughing at me". He's getting ready for the Champions League Final, the Kopite t***! But it all makes sense when I get in a boxing ring.

"His first words when he hugged me were that I'd done him". I just like fighting.

"What about Andre Ward, pound-for-pound king?" "I'll have to review the tapes and see what went wrong". Bellew throws a couple of combinations but they don't fully land. The Englishman's good looks, trash talking, god-like physique and devastating punching power - a promoter's dream - became too big for the cruiserweight division, one where Haye suffered just one defeat in 22 contests and held the European, WBA, WBC and WBO belts.
