Tony Bellew thumps David Haye with fifth round stoppage in London

Brilliant Bellew: Haye victory was for my tragic brother

Bellew landed yet another massive, thudding left hook which left his opponent with the legs of a baby giraffe as he went down for the third time.

The two men jabbed with nearly equal effectiveness (36 of 126, 29% for Bellew, 36 of 134, 27% for Haye), but Bellew was much better with power shots (34 of 93, 37% to Haye's 6 of 55, 11%) because it appeared Haye could not place proper weight on his back leg. He has been talking to Sky Box Office: "Tony boxed a great fight".

Haye edged a couple of tight early rounds, looking to take control behind the jab but there was plenty of sharpness from Bellew, along with some trademark posturing.

Reacting to the win in his post-fight interview, Bellew dedicated the victory to his late brother-in-law before reflecting on the fight.

Bellew caught Haye with a big right hand two minutes into round five and down he went again.

With Bellew forcing the pace and applying the pressure, it was clear to see that Haye was struggling to match the pace and deal with the sharp and precise shots being thrown at him by the Merseyside fighter. In the first meeting 13 months ago, Haye ruptured his Achilles tendon in the sixth frame and it was all downhill for him from there.

His Twitter following has grown, naturally, and he's been retweeting and replying to some of the attention. At this point, there are 3,056 supporters out of a goal of 10,000.

David Haye: "Bellew fought a very good fight and I didn't, simply". You will all laugh and say I wouldn't have a chance, but I would knock Andre Ward out - or I will outbox him.

Despite struggling until the knockdown, the 35-year-old said: "I was waiting for the flawless moment".

Haye had hoped a win on Saturday might propel him to a lucrative bout with Britain's reigning world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, but that dream was ended in brutal fashion by Bellew.

Records show that around 70% of rematches between British heavyweights since 1981 have had a different result in the rematch, but Bellew has bucked that trend tonight, defeating the Haymaker for the second time. "Tony was a better man, I couldn't quite make it happen". A former Unified World Cruiserweight Champion and former Heavyweight World Champion with some great names and devastating knockout on his resume, surely there is nothing left to prove? Although, I do think that Bellew is a fighter who will get better with age! I want to beat them.

That's all there is to it, enjoy the big fight! In a select few countries - Germany, Austria and Switzerland - subscribers to (legal) online sport streaming platform DAZN can watch Haye vs Bellew at no additional cost.
