David Haye’s 16-year boxing adventure is all but parked in the past, while his conqueror for the second time at the seething O2 Arena, Tony Bellew, is determined to rumble on to even bigger nights against Andre Ward or even Tyson Fury.
Bellew – just two years younger than Haye at 35 but whose boxing, fitness and prospects are on a decidedly more upward curve – played the perfect waiting game to dismantle the former world cruiserweight and heavyweight champion on Saturday night. After coming through an early examination of his patience, he felled Haye twice in the third round and again in the fifth with a perfect left hook, ecstatic when the referee rescued his dazed foe on the ropes, physically upright but spiritually bowed.
