The very best reactions from the world of Twitter as David Haye succumbed early to the power of Tony Bellew last night.
In last night’s sequel to their thrilling first encounter, Tony Bellew managed to put his rivalry with David Haye to bed as he knocked out his opponent in brutal fashion in round-five.
As one of the year’s biggest boxing events to date, the reaction in the O2 London was electric when the Liverpool-native Bellew took home the win.
And while it took Bellew eleven rounds to get the job done the first time around, Haye – despite having a strong start – didn’t look like the fighter he once was as the fight wore on.
The boxing community were mixed in their opinion of Haye’s brutal defeat but for the most part, people were respectful towards the former two-weight world champion.
I find a wobbly David Haye really uncomfortable watch. A two weight world champion to go out like this is kinda sad 😔 #boxing

Haye had an incredibly fun career… the “toe” thing should be nothing more than a footnote.

Had a ton of fun following David Haye, one my favorite fighters for a long time. Had a great career but his body is finished

How can David Haye come out laughing, joke & listening to headphones like he’s the best boxer in the world, and then perform like that? Embarrassing.
