Tony Bellew: Andre Ward responds to call-out following David Haye fight

Tony Bellew: Andre Ward responds to call-out following David Haye fight

Tony Bellew brutally put an end to his rivalry with David Haye on Saturday night as he knocked the Londoner out in the fifth round of their rematch at The O2.

With Bellew winning the first one somewhat controversially with Haye sustaining an achilles injury midway through the fight, the proud Evertonian left it in no doubt about who the better fighter is.

Haye began the fight in a predatory stance.

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.

As for the 34-year-old Ward - who has not fought since stopping Sergey Kovalev in eight rounds last June - Bellew says he has spoken to the American, who is keen to resume his career. "I'd love to knock him out", said Bellew. Bellew continued to batter Haye throughout round four as Haye appeared to have reinjured his right leg.

Tony Bellew versus David Haye 2. David looked very unstable at times but was more than willing to fight on.

"He's been on my mind since August and I just miss him so much".

"You have to let your fists do the talking, it didn't go my way even though I'm fully healthy".

Remarkably, Haye recovered to his feet again, but was then met with a barrage of punches prompting referee Howard Foster to step in and call a halt to proceedings.

Haye tried to force the action a lot more in the final minute, missing wildly with a combination in chasing Bellew who used his feet to avoid the punches.

Fed calm over 2% inflation shows hikes will be gradual
The Fed could be inclined to hold off on further rate hikes and let the economy use cheaper capital to rebalance. The FOMC next meets in June, when it is widely expected to raise the key rate by 25 basis points to two percent.

"I think it [The Contender] is going to be fire man".

Haye, 37, said before the fight that he needed a spectacular win to prolong his career, and it seems unlikely that the former world heavyweight and cruiserweight champion will continue beyond this. In the closing seconds of the third round he dropped Haye twice and would proceed to take over from there. I want to beat them.

But, of his future, he told talkSPORT: "I'll have to go back and review exactly what happened then make a decision".

"Hearn has talked about Ward - some kind of odd, obscure prize fight - and Bellew has talked about Ward".

Bellew was making reference to the character Will McKenzie and in a stunt seemingly orchestrated by the Liverpudlian, Buckley entered the press conference from the back of the room at the conclusion of Haye's speech.
