Tony Bellew has defeated David Haye in eleventh round after Haye’s corner threw in the towel. David Haye looked to have injured his right ankle midway through the fight and could hardly balance himself but decided to kept fighting but eventually ran out of gas in 11th round as Tony Bellew completed what was his career defining win over arch rival Haye.
David Haye started with rash punches and never looked in control of his body let alone the fight but still he was winning on most people’s scorecards by first 5 rounds. Than came awkward fall in round 6 and he looked to have injured his ankle. From than on it was always going to be only one result as Bellew kept punching (not convincingly) but enough to win the rounds.
