Beaten David Haye to consider boxing future

Repeat For Tony Bellew; No Revenge for 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 ideal waiting game to dismantle the former world cruiserweight and heavyweight champion on Saturday night. Haye outjabbed Bellew in the first two rounds but Bellew remained calm through the first few minutes of the fight. He courageously got up, only for Bellew to force the stoppage moments later. The loss was one of the biggest upsets of the year, with Bellew moving up from cruiserweight to take the fight. "He just got into a slugfest, and we hurt each other", Bellew said.

An emotional Bellew said: "David Haye is an wonderful fighter, he just got caught in a slugfest". But speed decreases with age.

Promoter Eddie Hearn will try to tempt American pound-for-pound star Andre Ward out of retirement and to step up to cruiserweight for a fight in the United Kingdom later this year as one option for Bellew.

Haye held his hands up after the one-sided fight and says he was not fit enough for a bout of this magnitude. Who's next? I don't know.

Bellew flashed a fantastic left hook that connected well, and he pounced in quickly after the restart before referee Howard Foster chose to end the bout and seal Bellew's second heavyweight triumph.

Bellew has made a habit out of using his knockout prowess to overcome serious odds-Haye was as high as a 6/1 favorite.

Bellew has achieved everything he ever set out to achieve and would do well to retire on such a high, having won the World Cruiserweight title at Goodison Park before defeating a former legend in back-to-back sold out fights.

"I didn't feel that great in there". I'm broke. All week I've been on my own in the hotel and each night I've cried, I'm a bit emotional all I can think about is him.

Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KO's) and Tony Bellew (30-2-1, 20 KO's) - the main protagonists of the Boxing weekend. Tony Bellew, I take my hat off to him, boxed a great fight, and I didn't.

"Tony was a better man". Everything happens for a reason. It's a great opportunity to host that show - I'm focused on that right now. Bellew's my nemesis. We are of similar stature.
