Bellew Says He Begged Haye To Stop Fighting, Retire Now

07 May 2018

In yet another exciting; domestic fight at a sold out O2 Arena, Tony "The Bomber" Bellew secured another stoppage victory against David Haye, doing so this time in a more emphatic and clinical fashion!

David Haye has praised Tony Bellew after losing by technical knock-out in the fifth round to the Liverpudlian on Saturday night.

But some felt the outcome was stained due to Haye suffering a severe Achilles injury in the sixth round.

Haye was forced to pull out of fights against Manuel Charr and Tyson Fury due to injury and underwent shoulder reconstruction surgery in November 2013 that had prompted his first retirement. Once Haye got right back up, Bellew swarmed Haye and knocked him down again as the third round end bell sounded.

We know he's not going to win a world title at heavyweight and he's already done that as a cruiserweight, so I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this is it.

The victor of the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight final between Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev would be a tantalising prospect with all the belts on the line, but the fight would not offer a huge financial incentive. "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. I need a megastar".

Amazon Offers to Buy Stake in Flipkart
With India seen as the next bastion of growth for e-commerce Amazon and Walmart have been picking up their efforts in the country. The sources noted that Walmart will buy at least 55 percent of Flipkart in a deal that will value the company at $20-21 billion.

He added: "David Haye is an awesome fighter, take nothing away from him. I wish Tony nothing but the best". I'll have to review the fight, review the tape, and see exactly where I went wrong.

It was a second damaging defeat to Bellew in the space of 14 months. He also changed trainers.

In the third round, Bellew twice sent Haye to the canvas thanks to a pair of powerful right-hand punches. Bellew refused to rush in, but patiently waited to explode with his faster hands when Haye moved into desperate beserker mode. And ones which Haye will unlikely take too lightly.

Bellew, the former WBC cruiserweight champion, was again considered the underdog but is enjoying the finest run of his career.

The following two rounds took much the same course, with Bellew seemingly happy to let Haye expend energy. Haye went down face-first and struggled to get up.

Haye was down three times before referee Howard Foster waved the fight off in the fifth stanza with the Hayemaker bravely trying to continue, but in no position to do so.
