Haye: I'll do much damage to Bellew with my gloves

Posted March 06, 2017

Parker, training at his Las Vegas base for the fight against Fury which will probably be held at Auckland's Vector Arena on May 6, has already indicated his willingness to fight Bellew, a cruiserweight who went up a weight class to shock Haye and most pundits with an 11th-round stoppage. I don't actually like all this.

"Bellew talked up his chances against either Parker or Wilder, telling Sky Sports News HQ: "(They're) e xciting fights. "I know he spoke throughout the build-up about putting me in hospital or me leaving on a stretcher, but that was never my intention".

"I've backed him into a corner, left him nowhere to go, and now I have what I want", said Bellew.

David Haye might have been the bigger man, but his huge frame collapsed before our very eyes, as Tony Bellew pummelled him to an 11th round victory.

'I've knocked out people a lot bigger and a lot stronger with a lot less. "I'm just a little scally (roguish) kid from Liverpool who's been in a "Rocky" movie, has won the world (cruiserweight) title and now lives in a seven-bedroom house".

"That could have been a final eliminator for the world heavyweight title".

The raid in Shabwa destroyed a house known in the area as one where al-Qaida militants lived. There were no immediate details available on damages or casualties caused by those strikes.

Haye fought much of the bout in pain, after sustaining the injury in the sixth round. "I could walk away tomorrow happily, but I know Eddie Hearn's going to make me some fantastic offer I can't walk away from".

It was an exciting fight, too, even though it was an unlucky one for Haye.

Roughly a month before the match, Bellew predicted an upset win, tweeting, "Believe me when I say I've been written off my whole career!"

"In rounds four and five he was exhausted but he was blocking, when we got to nine, I felt myself on top of him and I could feel him panicking".

I don't think it would be good for the boxing public to see Bellew thrown inside the ring with Joshua, Wilder or Parker. It's scary. No matter how hard or painful it gets, I can't stop. I can't believe you're still standing.' But, some of you don't believe me: I've got no switch-off button. "I could bring Parker or Wilder to the United Kingdom to fight Tony Bellew without any shadow of a doubt. The build-up will be electric as will fight night, I like millions of fight fans around the world can not wait!"

The background of the admittedly grainy footage seemingly shows a member of Haye's team throw a right hand in the direction of a fan.
