Former cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew (30-2-1, 20 KOs) stopped former two division champion David Haye (28-4, 26 KOs) in Round 5 last night.

The fight, which took place at O2 Arena in London, may have ended the career  of one of boxing's most entertaining fighters the past 15 years as Haye looked like a shot commodity.

Tony floored his foe twice in Round 3 and pummelled David in Round 4, nearly finishing him in that stanza.

In the fifth round, Haye went down like a sack of potatoes after a monstrous left hook from Bellew. He courageously again beat the count, but the bout was stopped soon after by referee Howard Foster.

At 38, Haye, despite fighting only four times in six years, was favored.

Heavyweight Ratings: May 5, 2018

Tony Bellew: “It’s been a great journey. Who’s next? I don’t know. I am a walking Super Series. Every fight I’m in is a Super Series. I need that mega star.”

David Haye:
“Bellew fought a very good fight and I didn’t, simply. Tony was a better man, I couldn’t quite make it happen.”

“I thought I was fit enough to beat him, it turns out I wasn’t, but he’s a great champion. Is this the end? It didn’t feel great in there tonight, but I don’t know. I lost to the better man, so congratulations to Tony.”

How good is Tony Bellew at heavyweight? And will we see him against any of the powerbrokers in the division next?

Takeaways

  • Haye didn't quit; He was hit very hard and went out on his shield
  • David, as of this post, didn't announce plans to retire
  • Bellew was the quicker of the two
  • Does Haye go to the Hall of Fame?
