Again, Bellew Stops Haye In Fifth Round

Tony Bellew

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

Still, while Haye is eager to get back to his winning ways, Bellew will be looking to prove that the first fight wasn't a fluke, and that he can take down a fully-fit Haye.

Haye was eventually stopped on the ropes and Bellew's emotions took over as he dedicated the fight to his partner Rachael's brother, Ashley Roberts, who died a year ago while on holiday in Mexico. He has been talking to Sky Box Office: "Tony boxed a great fight".

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.

The start of the fifth saw Bellew return to a more measured approach and happy to work off his jab and countering Haye.

Bellew beat nemesis David Haye in five rounds at London's O2 Arena last night but both fighters are now weighing up their future.

Bellew was getting more active with his punches at the start of the second round.

Scouse scrapper Bellew rightly earned the plaudits as he delivered on his pre-fight promise to stop Haye inside eight rounds and pick up back-to-back wins over his bitter rival.

US Stocks Decline as Fed Keeps Rates Steady
The company beat revenue and profit expectations in its March quarter, with its shares ending the regular session up 2.3 percent. In March, the Fed said that inflation excluding food and energy had "continued to run below 2 percent" on a 12-month basis.

"David Haye is an awesome fighter", Bellew said of his opponent, who was the WBA heavyweight champion in 2009 having previously been world champion at cruiserweight. After a solid first round, sluggishness set it. Haye's hands are fast but his legs are slow and he hammed it up to compensate for a lack of mobility.

He added: "David Haye is an incredible fighter, take nothing away from him". But I won, against all the odds.

Haye had hoped a win on Saturday might propel him to a lucrative bout with Britain's reigning world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, but that dream was ended in brutal fashion by Bellew.

"I don't want to see David Haye fight again", said Bunce on the 5 live Boxing with Costello & Bunce podcast.

Bellew is eyeing a fight with Ward, claiming in a mood of quiet triumphalism that he has the style to defeat the former pound-for-pound king.

It was the ex-world heavyweight and cruiserweight champion's second loss to fellow Briton Bellew, 35, in 14 months. "You all judge me, just because I am a little fat Scouser".

The 37-year-old says he "doesn't know" if this was the last time we will see him in the ring but it appears likely the curtain will come down on of the greats' time in the spotlight after this display in the capital.
