‘STOP FIGHT­ING JOKES, FACE A REAL WORLD CHAMP’

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Tony Bellew con­tin­ued his war of words with fel­low Bri­ton David Haye af­ter de­liv­er­ing a crush­ing knock­out of BJ Flores in Liver­pool. The ‘Bomber’ be­came the first man to stop the Amer­i­can when he de­liv­ered a bru­tal left­hook in the third round to suc­cess­fully de­fend his WBC cruis­er­weight ti­tle. Bellew then im­me­di­ately charged to­wards Haye, who was sat ring­side, and chal­lenged him to a bout. “The last two guys you fought are work­ing on night­club doors, or they’re putting the bins out,” said Bellew. “With 10 ounce gloves on, I’ll put you and your pa­thetic hair­cut to sleep. Brother, I’m the big­gest pay­day you’ve got right now.” Bellew then con­tin­ued his war of words with Haye, tweet­ing: “The clock is tick­ing, stop fight­ing jokes and fight a real world cham­pion.” Haye, mean­while, be­lieves he would eas­ily beat Bellew if he steps up to heavy­weight. He said: “If he wants to come up, it’s an easy night’s work. I’ll prob­a­bly knock him out with a jab.”
