Last Saturday’s showdown at the O2 really lived up to all the hype in the build-up preceding the epic grudge match.

There was lots of trash-talking, the lowlight of which was David Haye calling Tony Bellew’s supporters “f****** retards”.

But Bellew had the last laugh after he claimed the spoils after Haye’s camp conceded defeat in an 11th round stoppage.

Appearing on ITV’s Nightly Couch show, Bellew revelled in his deeply satisfying victory over his bitter rival, saying: “I couldn’t stand him. I enjoyed nothing more than smacking him in the chops, truth be told.

“I admire him as an athlete and for being the great fighter than he is and was but I don’t like him from a personal perspective, I don’t think he’s a nice fella.

“I think some of the things he said in the build-up was disgusting and he portrayed boxing, well, he portrayed himself in a very poor light.

“He stuck his media profile in the toilet and on Saturday night I flushed it.”

Bellew put the icing on the cake, commenting on Haye travelling to train in Miami, while he prepared for the bout in Rotherham, saying, “One guys trains to have a beautiful body and one guy trains to fight to the finish and that showed on Saturday night.”

Bellew entered the ring as the underdog on the night, and, in the second round, bust his hand on his way to marshalling an impressive victory. 

He now turns his attention to Tyson Fury, who called him out on twitter, with his uncle, Peter Fury, saying to Sky Sports, "I think it would be exciting, It would be a local derby, wouldn't it? It would be good."
