Tony Bellew beat the odds makers once again this weekend but in more emphatic fashion this time round – leaving no doubt to who the better fighter between him and Haye was.
Early on in the bout it was clear Bellew had done his homework on Haye and with the aid of coach Dave Coldwell came up with the perfect game plan to break Haye down bit by bit.
In the first fight a lot was made about Haye’s injury been a contributory factor to Bellew winning first time round but the Liverpool man left no doubt second time round.
Flattening Haye multiple times in the contest on route to winning inside the distance.
Here’s some of how the boxing world has been reacting to the sensational win thus far:
I loved David Haye as a young boxing fan I really hope he never fights again because losing to bellew is nothing to be ashamed of but if he carries on he will end up getting beat by someone like me, probably not but you all know what I mean ?

I used to be the biggest David Haye fan, but over the years I got sick of all the bullshit with him, at the same time, that was genuinely sad to watch for me, prefer to remember this David Haye pic.twitter.com/ydtWmRbyOw
