The rematch did not happen. Bellew knocked out hay

David Haye

"David Haye is an wonderful fighter, he just got caught in a slugfest". 'I'm not injured, I'm fully healthy'.

"Hearn has talked about Ward - some kind of odd, obscure prize fight - and Bellew has talked about Ward".

Taking nothing away from Tony Bellew.

Haye, 37, said before the fight that he needed a spectacular win to prolong his career, and it seems unlikely that the former world heavyweight and cruiserweight champion will continue beyond this.

"I didn't feel great in there tonight and I lost to the better man".

Hearn said that the two had verbally agreed to fighting each other but that Haye's recovery ensured that their planned rematch would go ahead as scheduled. "I'm an inside fighter".

"Tony was a better man". But it all makes sense when I get in a boxing ring. Everything happens for a reason.

Now he can not give it up, with his love of the limelight greater more attractive than putting his feet up and enjoying his hard-earned millions. Bellew's my nemesis. We are of similar stature. Styles make fights. He is BHop [Bernard Hopkins, who retired at 51 in 2016] but 20 years younger.

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

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

"I would beat Andre Ward". They were trading big shots during the round and Bellew droppped Haye down. "It's been a great journey, but I don't know where it goes". I want the referee to count to 10.

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. "I need that mega star". He also changed trainers.

Bellew mostly targeting the body of Haye, who was shooting the jab and looking for an opening to the head. It came in the first round but fizzled out by the third.

When he returned to his feet Haye remained unsteady and struggled to defend himself, again going down following another right hand.

Rattling through his engaging schtick as if caught with his hand in the sweet jar, Bellew paused to express a measure of sympathy for Haye.

Bellew showed quick reactions and quick feet to elude Haye's punches in the third round.

The Bomber has held British, Commonwealth, European and world titles and thanks to his two fights with Haye, has a lot of money in the bank as well.

It must have hurt Haye's parents to hear those words. An ugly post-fight fracas with Dereck Chisora following his loss to Klitschko which resulted in Haye smashing a bottle into his fellow Englishman's face still leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

Despite improving on his worst performance and beginning convincingly - and to the extent Bellew was under constant threat - following an exchange in the third Haye proved no longer able to take a punch.

In the fifth round, Bellew's superior sharpness and timing sealed the deal as he heavily floored "The Hayemaker" with an incredible left hook.
