Tony Bellew knocks out David Haye to win again

Brilliant Bellew: Haye victory was for my tragic brother

The sportsmanlike Haye repeatedly credited Bellew for being the better fighter in the post-fight interview and brushed off all questions of potential injury.

"I have had a disastrous eight months but somehow it all makes sense when I'm in the boxing ring", said Bellew.

Tony Bellew has defeated David Haye with a fifth round stoppage in their heavyweight rematch at the O2 Arena in London.

"I'm not injured. I'm fully healthy", said Haye, who refused to say whether he will retire.

Bellew put Haye down twice in third round and again in the fifth.

Victory will once and for all put this rivalry to bed with Bellew proving his first victory over Haye last March was no fluke. But Haye beat the count another time.

Nine feared dead in Georgia as cargo plane crashed
Chatham County Emergency Management Agency tweeted: "There has been a plane crash at the intersection of Hwy 21 at Crossgate Rd". The four-engine plane sent up a cloud of black smoke, with a tail wing coming to rest on a median, television images showed.

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. Whether that be from the powerful hooks thrown by "The Bomber" or partly due to an aggravation of his old injury it is not clear, however, I can only imagine it was a combination of the two. It wasn't long before Haye looked in trouble physically however, fighting off the front foot perhaps with his ruptured achilles from the first fight still troubling him. Opposite him, a confident and self assured Tony Bellew found his range and stuck to a smart game-plan once again, effectively using his lead hand to measure and his feet to adjust his distance.

Many had tipped the 35-year-old as the underdog in the clash but floored Haye three times before delivering a decisive knock-out blow. Composed, confident, relaxed and precise, he was willing to wait for Haye to punch himself out or for his body to betray him.

Where do both fighters go now? Bellew was doing a jab of his own, but not as good. The two boxing stars will settle the score in a fight that will truly be an all British affair. Haye did not appear to be 100% and the entire fight had shifted in Bellew's direction.

Bellew admitted a fight with Fury would have to be soon in order to capitalise as the former WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight champion ends a spell of over two years out of the ring on 9 June.

This time around, he feels he's more prepared to take on Bellew. He stumbled back to his corner. The referee has to step in and stop the fight.
