David Haye’s boxing career is hanging by a thread following his defeat to Tony Bellew on May 5.

The Hayemaker was hugely disappointing as he crumbled to his second loss to Bellew in 14 months.

Bellew knocked his opponent down three times, twice in the third round and then again in the fifth.

Haye returned to his feet after the third knockdown but Howard Foster put a stop to the contest shortly afterwards.

At the age of 37, and with back-to-back defeats to Bellew on his resume, there’s no chance of Haye being granted the title fight he was hoping for.

He is yet to announce his retirement but many don’t see a way back for him now.

Indeed, Tyson Fury’s thoughts on Haye’s latest setback are brutal.

Fury's brutal message

The Gypsy King has revealed that he placed a £1,000 bet on Bellew to stop Haye inside 12 rounds.

Fury didn’t think that Haye, with his “two wooden legs”, stood a chance.

“I expected that fight to go as it did,” Fury told “I actually put £1,000 on Bellew to stop him inside the distance because David Haye is finished.

“Shot to pieces, can’t pull the trigger no more and he’s got two wooden legs.

“How was he ever going to beat somebody?

“If Tony Bellew wouldn’t have even been in the ring he probably couldn’t have completed 12 rounds by himself, shadow boxing.

“I actually felt sorry for him to be honest.”

Tyson Fury Press Conference

Fury further mocked Haye by offering him a job.

“And if you need a job David, I’m sure we can give you a job at Gypsy King HQ, PO Box 104, Monaco,” Fury added. “You can clean my ship.”

Fury doesn’t believe that Haye should hang up his gloves, though.

“I think he should keep going you know,” the 29-year-old added.

“It’s a good sport, good for him, I think he’s got a few good nights left in him and I hope he keeps going.”
