Beaten David Haye to consider boxing future

Tony Bellew David Haye

Bellew - just two years younger than Haye at 35 but whose boxing, fitness and prospects are on a decidedly more upward curve - played the flawless waiting game to dismantle the former world cruiserweight and heavyweight champion on Saturday night.

Time waits for no man, as Haye painfully discovered at the O2 Arena in south London, not far from where he grew up.

"It's been a remarkable journey but the story is over", said BBC boxing correspondent Mike Costello.

Any ill-feeling towards Bellew was set aside by Haye as he gave credit to his conqueror.

It pained Carl Froch to watch his friend David Haye lose to Tony Bellew on Saturday night.

'Ward now wants this fight, ' Hearn said.

"There doesn't need to be an inquest. It's a fight I like". Every fight I'm in is a Super Series.

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.




Bellew said: "I'd love Tyson Fury". A former Unified World Cruiserweight Champion and former Heavyweight World Champion with some great names and devastating knockout on his resume, surely there is nothing left to prove?

Bellew was only a light-heavyweight when Haye was at the peak of his career as the World Boxing Association heavyweight champion.

"No doubt they [Fury and Bellew] would muster up a scuffle", said Bunce.

"I'd love Tyson Fury". If he regains half of what he had against Wladimir Klitschko then Bellew's not touching him - purely on size and strength, his extra reach and extra height. I'll throw Joseph Parker in the hat as well.

"I miss him so much. I know people think I'm insane, but I know I can do it".

Former two-weight world champion Haye, 37, did not attend the news conference after the fight. Haye bravely got up, but his legs were betraying him, and when Bellew followed up with more unforgiving blows, referee Howard Foster stopped the fight.

"I've been waiting for Eddie to pick up the phone and I still haven't got that phone call". I left an empty seat in row B for him. Who's next? I don't know.
