Hopefully Bellew gets obliterated, really dislike his smug face.

Haye's leg was gone which basically ruined the fight.

Yeah took courage there's probably a rematch there if Haye wants to go through injury recovery again.

I'd like to see it again with a bit of mutual respect.

I can't see it, he should retire, he's had too many injuries now and it's 12-18 months for him to come back from that I reckon, the big fight he wanted at the end of it - AJ - will be well out of his reach by them.

I think there's enough from that fight to do it again, it depends on the injury.

Haye was in control of that fight until he got injured.  He showed tremendous courage to fight on, but the fight was as good as over from that point.

Can't see it really.  Thought Bellew struggled a bit with the extra weight, so he might look at a move back down to cruiser.  Saying that, he's just been calling out Wilder so who knows.

Exactly what I thought. Bellew wasn't getting near Haye until the injury. Great courage from Haye, he couldn't hardly move after the injury and was getting pummeled, but he wouldn't quit.
A real shame really, but the Katie Taylor fight more than made up for it.

Haye was looking in control for the first three or four rounds.  Constantly on the front foot chasing Bellew round the ring.  Caught Bellew a few times, but also got caught a couple of times himself.  Then in the 6th, Haye's leg went.  Both of them slipped over, but don't know if that's what made Haye's injury worse or was caused because his leg was knackered.  Bellew then won every round from then on, but seemed to lack the energy to finish Haye off, before it was stopped in the 11th after Haye fell through the ropes.

Then at the end there was a huge cringeworthy respect fest that went on for what seemed like hours.  Joshua would put Bellew on his arse inside two rounds.

Lad at work had a tenner on Bellew in the 11th at 100-1.
