Repeat For Tony Bellew; No Revenge for David Haye

  • David Haye

Bellew got through two risky rounds at the start of Saturday night's heavyweight fight before flooring Haye twice in the third round.

Fourteen months after their first battle, David Haye and Tony Bellew return to The O2 Arena in London for an anticipated rematch on Saturday. After the fight Haye refused to blame his injuries and gave Bellew full credit for the win but also wanted time to recover so he could have an immediate rematch for a shot at redemption.

The Londoner said he needs to review the fight before making a decision but it will not make pretty viewing.

In the first meeting, which took place at the same venue in March 2017, Bellew moved up from the cruiserweight division to pull off a major upset with a stoppage win in eleven rounds. "I'd love to knock him out", said Bellew.

A second knockdown followed moments later and Bellew - the underdog with bookmakers, as he was in the previous fight - delivered a pinpoint left hand in the fifth to again send Haye down.

The Telegraph reports that both Haye and Bellew were guaranteed £2.5m, regardless of the outcome of the fight. Haye could not land anything that really troubled Bellew in the first, and Bellew showed he was risky on the counter-attack in the second.

"David Haye is an awesome fighter, we just got into a slugfest. Just let me get past 1.30pm on Sunday when her flight touches down and I'll try and talk her round". I'm not saying I would have beaten him in Dusseldorf when he beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. Every punch I threw was for you. This resulted in referee Howard Foster to jump in and stop the contest with Haye in no position to continue with 48 seconds of the round remaining.

"I don't know", admitted Haye.

He said he would meet British former world champion Fury at heavyweight but only if the bout happened soon. But he made it back into the ring, against all odds, a diminished but still risky fighter hoping to even the score and get a shot at one of Joshua's titles. I overestimated how good I was.

"Doubt me now. Doubt me now, you fools". I just know I can beat Andre Ward. Luckily for Haye, the bell saved him as his senses looked scrambled.

"Straight after the fight, I just went to see his mum and dad and told them to tell him to do the right thing and finish", he added.

That's all there is to it, enjoy the big fight!

By the fourth Hayes was looking sluggish, with his back foot slightly dragging as Bellew smelt blood.
