Bellew defeats Haye with second knock-out

Bellew defeats Haye with second knock-out

He was the undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world and then, to go on and win and be a heavyweight world champion, that says it all.

"I seriously came to the ring and was willing to be finished", Bellew said. "I will knock him out".

Froch was on commentary duty for Sky Sports and he delivered a line after the fight that paints a sad picture of where Haye's career lies.

"He's a better fighter, a legend of the sport".

"I lost my brother last year and there is only one person this victory is for - it's for Ashley", said 35-year-old Bellew, clearly emotional and raw after the tragic events of August 2017. "I'll have to review the tapes and see what went wrong". "I have a different set of skills to what he has seen before". Who's next? I don't know.

As one of the year's biggest boxing events to date, the reaction in the O2 London was electric when the Liverpool-native Bellew took home the win. I said to him "please stop".

"Timing is everything in this sport".

The sibling of his long-term partner Rachel reportedly plunged from a balcony during a family holiday in Cancun a year ago and the fighter says it "destroyed him".

"Fury isn't a big puncher like Anthony Joshua or Haye. It's a fight I like". Bellew started battering him against the ropes and the referee jumped in to wave off the fight.

"People shouldn't forget that as a boxer he has given us more than we ever expected".

Haye told media in the ring he will watch a replay of the fight before making decisions, but did not speak to reporters later. David looked very unstable at times but was more than willing to fight on. Bellew took advantage of his hurt opponent and cracked Haye again to the tune of the bell signaling the end of round which coincided with the start of referee Howard John Foster's count. I couldn't quite get off. "He has never been out on the floor like that with shots to the chin".

He campaigned at light-heavyweight which wasn't for him, because he had to squeeze right down, and cruiserweight is clearly his division. I can't even put it into words.

"I was hoping for a war and that he would beat the fire out of me".

On Saturday night he kept his word as he unleashed the pain of a awful year on Haye in the heavyweight rematch at the o2. I'm taking nothing away from Tony Bellew.

Bellew called it and he called right again.

Haye appeared to be struggling with a right ankle injury in the bout.

"Emotionally I haven't really been there in this camp".

"At night, you cry yourself to sleep".
