David Haye is yet to make a decision about retirement, despite his second successive defeat to Tony Bellew in their heavyweight rematch. If he or Wilder are serious they can have the fight, no problem.' Joshua v Haye would fill Wembley Stadium to its 90,000 capacity this summer.
Tennyson had to weather an early storm from Ward including a second round knockdown but found the moment he was looking for when he landed a lovely right-left combination to knock Ward down and then finished his opponent with an uppercut.
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. In this round, Bellew took the fight to Haye, who was backing away and really looking in a world of trouble. Bellew avoided Haye's punches before exploding into action in the third round with power shots of his own that were more accurate. Revenge on his mind and a right hand cocked and loaded, Haye stalked Bellew, establishing control of the center of the ring in the opening frame. "Nobody in the David Haye business should ever want to see him fight". Haye lands a strong right hand at the end of the round.
"David Haye is an awesome fighter, he just got caught in a slugfest".
"But I am just so proud of him and everything he has been through, he deserves so much credit". I told him "Stop the fight". You will all laugh and say I wouldn't have a chance, but I would knock Andre Ward out. 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.
At 37 years old and having proved increasingly injury prone, Haye's reputation has been left beyond fix after successive defeats by an opponent who was a light-heavyweight, while he reigned as the WBA heavyweight champion at his peak.
Now that Haye has lost, there's no telling whether this is it for the 37-year-old former world heavyweight champion. "You name them, and I'll beat them", Bellew said. But he made it back into the ring, against all odds, a diminished but still unsafe fighter hoping to even the score and get a shot at one of Joshua's titles.
Haye goes down under the heavy-hitting of Bellew.
In the third the Liverpudlian sent his opponent to the canvass twice with the bell rescuing Haye from a third knock down. I thought he'd have enough today, but he became an old man in the ring tonight.
"Doubt me now. Doubt me now, you fools", Bellew, speaking on talkSPORT, said.
That's all there is to it, enjoy the big fight!
