Haye: Fury Not The Same Fighter, I'd Like To See Him Face Bellew

In December of last year, Tony Bellew promised to end the career of David Haye - and then he also promised to end the career of Tyson Fury.

Back on May 5, in their highly anticipated rematch, Bellew blew Haye out in a one-sided contest. Bellew put him down three times for a fifth round stoppage at the O2 Arena in London.

And last week, Haye announced his retirement from the sport.


One down, and now one to go.

"I now have a very clear plan for 2018 and that is to knock out David Haye and then knock out Tyson Fury and end both their careers but first things first I need to rid the sport of David Haye on May 5," Bellew said a few months ago.

And then last weekend in Manchester, Fury made his return after being inactive since his victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November of 2015.

Fury picked up a one-sided stoppage win over Sefer Seferi - in a contest where many critics ridiculed the level of opposition. Seferi was not competitive and appeared to quit after four rounds.

Following the fight, Bellew challenged Fury to a 2018 showdown.

But the 6'9 Fury believes that he's too big and too strong for Bellew - who moved up last year from the cruiserweight ranks.

Haye was scheduled to fight Fury on two occasions, but withdrew both times with injuries.

He likes the idea of a Fury-Bellew showdown and feels the contest would be competitive - because he doesn't believe Fury is still the same fighter who shocked Klitschko.

“I would like to see Bellew in there with Fury, I think that would be a great fight. Bellew has proved his credentials at heavyweight by beating me twice when no-one really gave him a shot," Haye told The Sun.

“I don’t believe Fury is the man of old. I believe the Tyson Fury that beat Wladimir Klitschko would handle Bellew pretty easily but I’m not sure that guy will ever be seen again.”

Fury has some talent, but is mostly a hype job. The only reason he beat Klitschko, is because he totally got into Wlads weak psyche and Wlad got old and lost much of his power by that point too. Every…

Prime Fury was dropped and put on queer street by a lesser cruiser weight before. Bellow stops this Fury and Fury know it, no way he takes that fight. He will schedule another staged exhibition against a paid off 40…
