In the first bout, Bellew was able to survive an early onslaught by Haye to score two knockdowns en route to an 11th round stoppage. The first fight can rival any of the Rocky movies for drama and determination. Bellew suffered a broken hand in the early rounds with Haye barely able to stand due to a ruptured Achilles tendon. Both fighters exhibited tremendous heart, leading to much excitement heading into this rematch.

The rematch was originally ticketed for last December 17th but had to be postponed after Haye tore a bicep.
 
"We're ecstatic to be bringing this epic rematch to AWE viewers," stated Charles Herring, president of AWE. "This fight has broad appeal because the first bout, which aired on AWE, was one of the most amazing fights in 2017. It had a true "Rocky" feel, with Haye challenged by his injury. Bellew has broad appeal in the United States due to his appearance in the movie Creed. Boxing fans love heavyweights for their explosive power and exciting matches, and the winner should be in a position for a shot at a world title bout."

[QUOTE=Boxing Goat;18739360]Idk, Stevenson can crack and it's more about how off guard the guy taking the shot is as well. Prime Haye vs. Stevenson is a pretty close comparison in my opinion[/QUOTE] Well, why don’t I just shut my mouth.…
