    It’s an interesting one mate because there’s so many question marks.

    I don’t think Haye was ever fit for the 1st fight and tried counter that with his size advantage so came in heavier than maybe expected. It didn’t work and his speed and accuracy was way off.

    This time he’s lighter and is more like I expected him to be for the first fight. Maybe that’s a sign he has more trust in his body. Bicep surgury pre fight isn’t great though. Bellew is a tough and has a counter punch in him.

    Haye anywhere near his best win’s IMO but he’s got a lot to answer. It’s must win for him though.

    You're spot on mate, there was injury rumours regarding Haye first time and he did go and see a specialist in Germany only a week before the fight.
    Haye has to win convincingly if he's gonna continue fighting. I have a sneaky feeling he'll pack in afterwards win,lose or draw, hope I'm wrong but looking forward to it all the same.

    Well there it is the questions about Haye have been confirmed he just can't do it at that level anymore. Credit to Bellew he's made me realise he's a better fighter than I thought but he fought a guy who wasn't fit first time and that achilles was definitely troubling him again, I'm sure they said he'd been to Germany again this week. It comes to everyone and it's come to Haye now unfortunately.

    Really poor all round I thought pal, bit of a con as you say. Haye was never fit, completely ballooned up since the weigh in, his stance was shaky right from the start and was non existent by the end. Just shuffled about and didn’t put any weight on it. Soon as he took a punch he snapped. Should never have been in there, poor form.

    Fair play to Bellew but he won’t have an easier fight than that. Been some disappointing fights lately, thought Rodriguez looked comfortable tonight though.

    Not to discredit Bellew, I think Haye has been stealing a living from the sport for a while. Fair play if you can do it, but as a boxer he's had zero credibility for a few years, it's all been hype. I can see a career in punditry will follow.

    Another Eddie Hearn overhyped fight between boxers who sit on different levels of the ‘top heavyweight’ scales (literally) if you watch the weigh in. Over in 3 rounds, at his fighting weight, Joshua by KO
