It's also looked like Haye was becoming more and more flat-footed as the fight progressed, another reason to suggest that his Achilles injury was still plaguing him and that his body just can not handle a hard sport as hard as boxing anymore! "He done some really clever stuff in there".

"I left an seat empty for him and I know he was here watching me". He boxed really good. Every punch I threw was for you. It didn't feel that great in there tonight.

Hearn said: "When you see who Tyson Fury fights over the next three or four fights, he wont go near Tony Bellew".

Ward, 34, retired with a ideal 32-fight record in September and was regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world having won world titles at super-middleweight and light-heavyweight.

"Haye bounced back to his corner and the only reason I gave him a chance in the fourth round was because he's still so heavy-handed".

"I'm not saying I would have beaten him in Dusseldorf when he beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015".

"I've been on my own in the hotel room and each night I've cried".

That he then folded so quickly demonstrated the extent of his decline, and while Bellew is also expected to retire having achieved all his ambitions, it is the loss of Haye - considered one of the best cruiserweights in history - that will create the greater void. He boxed a great game-plan, and I couldn't quite get to it. "I need a megastar".

Haye was dropped on two occasions in the third round and while he got back to his feet each time, Bellew knew he had the win in the bag.

Bouts with Britain's IBF, WBA and WBO world champion Anthony Joshua or WBC title holder Deontay Wilder have been ruled out, leaving a handful of other heavyweights to face or the prospect of moving down to cruiserweight. I'm a walking super-series. He is a legend of the sport but I am just happy I won.

A few days ago I predicted that if David Haye could come into the contest fully fit, focused and injury free, that he would be more likely to win the rematch.

Haye defiantly rose to his feet but was swiftly placed under an intense barrage of punches from Bellew, prompting referee Howard Foster to end the fight with 50 seconds remaining in the round.
