The last but one duel Tony Bellew held on March 4, 2017, in which he met with former world champion in 2 weight categories David Haye. Haye won the first half of the fight due to activity. Bellew was surprisingly good at defending, timely avoiding dangerous attacks, but against the background of an aggressive opponent, Tony was lost and did not finish.

In the 6th round, the picture of the battle changed dramatically. Haye injured the Achilles tendon and was knocked down by the onslaught of Bellew. Hay rose and the rest of the fight was boxed with a damaged leg, fulfilling the role of an already receiving side. In the eleventh round, Haye, having missed several strikes at the ropes, fell out of the ropes. He managed to return to the ring and take a vertical position before the end of the referee’s bill, but then David’s seconds dropped a towel.

On May 5, 2018, Tony Bellew took revenge against David Hay. Victory in the duel by technical knockout in the 5th round was won again by Bellew.
