Tony Bellew and David Haye go head-to-head for the second time on Saturday evening
Tony Bellew proved to be the better man again Saturday night by knocking out David Hayes in the fifth round. Haye had billed this non-title bout as the make or break contest of a fading career, having been stopped by Bellew, two years younger at 35, in the 11th round after suffering an Achilles injury when the pair met in March last year. After coming through an early examination of his patience, he felled Haye twice in the third round and again in the fifth with a ideal left hook, ecstatic when the referee rescued his dazed foe on the ropes, physically upright but spiritually bowed.
The Telegraph reports that both Haye and Bellew were guaranteed £2.5m, regardless of the outcome of the fight.
Asked if he would retire, Haye said: I don't know.
Tony Bellew boxed brilliantly again but I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see him walk away now. "I was hurt in the fight. I need a megastar".

If Haye continues to fight, Bellew fears his former rival will get an even bigger beating by a harder punching heavyweight.
'I'll have to review the tapes, I was bettered tonight, ' Haye said. Who do you want to see me fight next?
But two-weight world champion Haye definitely should pack it in after Saturday's defeat. He also changed trainers. It came in the first round but fizzled out by the third. Bellew then suddenly went on the offensive and chased Haye across the ring before landing a right flush on the jaw to drop the Londoner for a count. Well-placed one-twos from Haye forced Bellew into the ropes toward the end of the round and Haye capitalized the period with an overhand right that hit his man square. Haye began to let his own hands go and was starting to connect with solid shots, which were troubling Bellew. An ugly post-fight fracas with Dereck Chisora following his loss to Klitschko which resulted in Haye smashing a bottle into his fellow Englishman's face still leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth. The bell saved Haye from further punishment that round and he tried to regroup in the fourth. His nightmare was complete in the fifth round, when he was sent sprawling across the canvas by a left hook.
Bellew knocked down Haye three times before the referee called a halt to the proceedings and award the victory to the Liverpudlian.
