Haye was nothing more than a punch bag after the second round.  didn't even muster the energy to put his guard up and bellew could of finished it a lot earlier than he did.

It was an embarrassing "fight".

I too watched it on dodgy facebook streams with people screaming and shouting in the background.  one went down and it would be off to the next one.  i had a great stream that got shut off just as haye was entering the ring.

over all it was a massive disappointment.

"Don't believe the hype!"

Credit to Bellew for taking his lumps in the first two rounds but regardless of the result he will have no chance against Wilder and likewise Haye must cross Joshua off his ' to do' list because it aint going to happen. Pity about Haye's injury because it spoilt the fight for me. i can see a rematch at Goodison Park once Haye's ankle recovers.

Rematch looking on for December - can't wait if it is!

David Haye says he has agreed terms for a heavyweight rematch with Tony Bellew.
After a fiery pre-fight build-up, WBC cruiserweight world champion Bellew stopped his rival in the 11th round in their first meeting in March.
Haye suffered an Achilles injury in the sixth round before falling to his third career defeat.
Haye tweeted: "It's taken months of negotiating but teams have finally agreed all terms for Haye-Bellew 2. Will Bellew put pen to paper?"
No date or location has been confirmed by either promoter, but there are reports it will be held on Sunday, 17 December at London's O2 Arena.
Former WBA heavyweight champion Haye needed surgery following the defeat by Liverpool's Bellew, and has since split with trainer Shane McGuigan.

Analysis
Luke Reddy, BBC Boxing reporter
Since splitting with McGuigan, Haye has linked up with renowned Cuban coach Ismael Salas, a trainer of multiple world champions. But the impact of that new relationship will form just a small part of the questions the Hayemaker must answer in a second meeting with Bellew.
Crucially, how much trust will he be able to place in his Achilles? Can he box at full throttle?
Many believed he would have gone on to beat Bellew in March until injury struck but there were signs Haye was beginning to blow prior to his misfortune. Bellew boxed cleverly, countering with accuracy time and again so it is unlikely his chances will be dismissed this time around.
So in the ring this looks balanced on paper and will again deliver plenty of intrigue. It is outside of the ring where many in the sport will hope common sense and calm win the day. Haye was fined for his words last time out, while Bellew faced a stiff warning from the British Boxing Board of Control.
Bellew helped Haye back to his stool in his stricken state afterwards, pointing to a respect. But it is safe to say there is no love lost here and if this bout is confirmed as expected next week, anything other than a ferocious build-up would be a surprise.
