David Haye wins the fight when he lands flush. It will be over within 2/3 rounds. Simple as that.

 

The only way Bellew has a chance is if he takes him past 4/5 rounds. This won't happen though.

Will be an interesting one but I think Haye wins inside 3 unfortunately. There's no way Bellew can trade with him like he did against Flores or it will be over the minute Haye lands. If he's defensive then it's a matter of time before Haye will land a combination of punches. Can't really see any way Bellew wins unless it's going to the later rounds and he'll have to survive a barrage of punches from a bigger, faster and stronger man in order for that to happen which makes it unlikely that he'll still be standing.

 

If I'm honest I think Bellew knows he's up against it here.

He's always stated that he's only doing it for his family so that they're financially secure.

This is the biggest fight he'll ever have financially as there was no one remotely close to a name like Haye in the Cruiserweight Division for him so the money will be very good for both. This could well be Bellew's last fight I feel.

Anyone see Haye on soccer Am? made an absolute cunt of himself, took "smack" talking too far:

Also The Gloves Are Off was tasty last night, Bellew had Haye off everywhere, its really built up to feel like a massive fight, cant wait for it, hope Bellew knocks him clean out now.

Bellew has Haye right where he wants him. Haye who is known for his mouth didn't have a response when Bellew gave him some home truths and I didn't think Haye looked that great, if anything Bellew looked bigger.

 

I still don't think Bellew will win but I think he has Haye wound up enough to go for an early knockout and Bellew will be ready to counter that recklessness and try to land. Haye has been knocked down by a cruiserweight before and that was in his prime so I definitely think Bellew can floor him.

Funny, no media mention of Haye throwing in the race card from last nights press conference then throwing a disability insult (retards) at the crowd. Bellew is well and truly under Hayes skin. He's an absolute joke and I hope Bellew puts him to sleep.

 

EDIT: here's his tweet about it: https://twitter.com/mrdavidhaye/status/836343237879058432

I really can't stand Haye now. I used to have an appreciation for his psychological games but Bellew is well and truly in his head and he is losing it and Bellew is showing him to be the twat he is.

 

I wish McGuigan would stay out of it, he doesn't need to get involved and it's not his style. I really rate him as a trainer but don't get brought down in the Haye shit storm. Watching them in the build up training on a boat wearing sunglasses... fuck off!

Wasn't big on Bellew, but he's played the game to a tee and has come across very level headed whilst also winding Haye up at the same time. If he wins I'd imagine him to become a commercial machine and smash America, maybe even another Rocky movie.

Strange how they were best of buds, then as they get towards the end of their respective careers they become savage enemies throwing insults and sometimes other things too. How much is it to watch this fight ?

Bellews's still a long shot with the bookies; I know very little about boxing but people saying he has to be "perfect" to win it while Haye has to be poor. Really hope it happens, Haye does seem to have a screw loose.

Don't watch much boxing but I'll be watching this.

Same here, I want even fussed last week. Unfortunately it's more hope than expectation. But all the risks is in Hayes corner plus there's something in the air here that seems to push Scousers on that you don't find in Londoners... Although David Price lets the side down

Haye has weighed in a full stone heavier than Bellew. Big difference that, can work well for both fighters, haye obviously having the heavier punch but bellew will, should he last that long, be more agile in the later rounds

Think Haye's probably faster, even that much heavier. Bellew is underdog, no question.

Certainly no rematch. Unfortunately tonight was the end of Haye. He looked sluggish even without the injury. Unfortunately 3 years out of that sport and at the age of 36 really did tell tonight. Hang up the gloves David, it was embarrassing.

Yeh I doubt we will see Haye again too. It's a shame it ended the way it did because it was going to be an interesting 2nd half of the fight.

 

I am made up for Bellew though, he is an average fighter but he has a big heart and he is a funny man too.

The end irritated the shit out of me.

 

Haye was nowhere near injured as much as he made out- if at all. All that talk at the end was just money. It wouldn't surpr5me if they were on the phones to each other all the way through the build up.

Haye was severely Injured Hafnia. He couldn't walk at all. There's no way Haye would have willingly lost that fight.

Fair play to him, really didn't think he had it in him.

Let's be honest he fought a man with one leg for 5 rounds and just about finished him off! I thought Bellew was poor myself and if he really thinks he can mix it with Wilder and Joseph Parker he's a mad man.

It was all about money... sickeningly so.

Of course it was all about money. But there's noway the outcome was pre-planned this isn't WWE. Haye was looking for a shot at the big boys why would he willingly lose this fight when he had the potential to make even more money of a fight with Joshua

Joshua would destroy him. Haye should retire - the way he conducted himself before the fight was a disgrace.

 

Can't stand shane mcguigan - smug looking twat.

Bellew punched himself out in the 5th and 6th round. If he hadn't gone for broke then he would have won the last rounds with ease but he was knackered.

 

Parker is crap so I could see him giving him a fight and likewise Wilder is terrible albeit a massive puncher.

 

Bellew definitely took Hayes shots better than I thought he would.

Bellew broke his hand in the second or third round he said, no wonder he couldn't put full power into his punches. As for Haye being "not that injured", he had to go directly for surgery on his Achilles, I'd say he was pretty injured myself!

 

Thought it was a good fight myself, went exactly as Bellew predicted which made it all the more sweeter. Plus it won me a few bob!

Bellew just pretty much retired on talksport then, said its going to take something big and special for him to come back because he's had enough. He said that fight with Haye has financially secured him so he doesn't need to fight.

 

Shame Derry Matthews retired yesterday as well.

Can't say I blame him. Getting punched fuck put of for a living isn't type of career you want to be in for a prolonged amount of time.

Good decision by bellew.

 

The most he could get out of boxing aside of money was kudos. There are no fights out there worth risking all he has earned.

 

He is fighting powerful punchers and he should now go and enjoy retirement with his family. Why risk his health?

 

I think he would make a cracking trainer/commentator. He is engaging - fun to watch on TV.

 

He will pile on the pounds now though! Fair play to the lad - he made a great career out of his skills - got a huge heart.

I still think he will fight again but he was saying its hard work, he's lived in a hotel room on his own for 16 weeks, he said it was just a standard premier inn room as well, no special suite or anything, then getting into the ring to have the buggery punched out of you.

He'll fight again, it'll have to be for stupid money though and he's not soft, he knows by hinting at retirement that if anyone tries to tempt him they'll come calling with deep pockets.

Talks of him fighting Wilder or Parker for a heavyweight title. If he fights Wilder then its the money maker, can go to Vegas, earn a shit load of money, possibly get beat then retire.

 

Best thing for Bellew is he now has a lot of options, does he drop back to cruiserweight and unify those titles? Stay at Heavyweight and fight for a world title? or as he's hinted at, retire?

 

Haye is done now though, greatest cruiserweight this country has produced.

His ability to take a shot is tremendous. Probably too good. He's had a few knock downs - one more fight at tops. If he can retire then he should. He will get tv work no problem. Probably could get into acting - better than vinnie jones.

I think he will have one more fight. The sad thing is, he will probably then retire following a defeat. Whatever he does he shouldn't be talked into getting in the same ring as Joshua.

If that's regarding Haye then he said himself after the fight he can forget world titles after that defeat. If about Bellew then he said he wouldn't last against Joshua, infact when they did ask he said "I'm not stupid!"

Tyson Fury tweeted earlier saying he has an announcement coming shortly...

 

His back's feeling a bit better now so if you want some tarmac on your drive to give him a bell?

 

All seriousness to one side, Bellew is 34 and holds a cruiser weight world belt, he can hand pick from a bunch of no hopers and bank some easier money and pad out his record. Haye was chronically under prepared, 5 years out then rolling two part time bums over was never enough to regain his former edge, got paid to get beat and sounds like a serious enough injury to now overcome, struggled to catch Bellew who is very much not a quick mover.

 

Did I post in here Khan's agreed to Pacquiao, so theres another imminent retirement for a so called leading British boxer.

 

Lots of happy punters out there that lumped a few quid on Bellew and made a few quid. Well done for keeping the faith.

 

Next up lets see how far Klitschko has sunk compared to his former dizzying heights.

Khan needs to start fighting more regularly and he needs to fight Brook. There isn't a bigger fight out there for him.

Career ender that one though isn't it, likelihood is Khan gets beat then he has nowhere to go then, hence why he's ducking that fight for now.

Yeh true but if he lost to Pacquio there wouldn't be much of a comeback either. I would also expect Khan to get beat but I don't expect him to get blown away so I think there will always be a way back for him. Surely Brook is the biggest payday for him?
