David Haye took on Tony Bellew in what was built up as “Grudge Match” but when the night came it turned out to be a very underwhelming fight with David Haye injuring his ankle midway through the fight and scrapping to round 11 when his corner finally threw the towel. Neither fighter looked in control and Bellew win came with a sour taste, however hes back in the contention for a big fight against either Wilder or event against Joshua.
David Haye started in a strange style throwing wild punches left and right and never looked in control of his body let alone the fight. However Tony Bellew was happy to run around in first half of the fight in hope to gas out Haye. Strategy worked like a charm as Haye hurt his ankle in round 6 and to his credit bravely kept fighting when it was so evident he don’t have any balance. From than on it was always going to be one result only the question was when. When Bellew caught Haye with a left hook that was the end as Haye dropped off the ring and his corner threw the towel.
