Carl Froch tells Tony Bellew what he should do next after beating David Haye again

David Haye v Tony Bellew

Tony Bellew has done it again.

Against the odds for a second time, the Bomber defeated his arch-nemesis David Haye by fifth round TKO, to put an end to their prolonged rivalry.

Bellew's win this time was much more impressive, with Haye being knocked down three times and he was simply outboxed by the 35-year-old Liverpudlian.

After the referee brought a halt to the fight, the calls were there for Haye to finally announce his retirement.

Injuries appear to have got the better of the 37-year-old and it seems unlikely that he'd be able to defeat any top-level opposition these days.

In start contrast, the world is Bellew's oyster.

The Bomber proceeded to call out the retired Andre Ward in the ring after his victory, but Carl Froch has other ideas for his old pal.

He believes Bellew should ditch the idea of fighting a "boring" Ward and instead, look at setting up a huge bout with Tyson Fury.


He says: "This is what I would do for Tony Bellew now, this is the opponent I think would be the biggest fight out there and the name has been mentioned before, everyone knows who he is.

"He needs a fight back first and after his fight back and he looks good and he does what he can do, Tyson Fury is just box office, that's a massive fight.

"I don't know if I'm wrong, but I'm not usually wrong. When you pick a fight and put names together, you know if it's got that crossover appeal.

"Tony Bellew vs Tyson Fury, for me that's a juicy fight, so we'll see, but he might not be fighting again, he don't enjoy the sport that much anymore Tony."


Well, I think boxing fans would certainly love to see that fight made.

Both Bellew and Fury have exchanged call outs in the last year or so, but could Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren agree on a deal? We'll have to wait and see.
