I agree. Bellew is not excellent.
Five live are going mad now about haye's trainers. Calling him a fool for wearing them as they have no support.
A shite fighter?!
While I dont doubt that the Haye of 5 years ago would have won comfortably Bellew was fighting as light heavyweight a few years ago, has now won a cruiserweight title, and just beat a heavyweight when not many people gave him a chance. (I won £130!)

I can only judge it how I saw it and for me Bellew was the one backing off for five rounds and Haye was pursuing, making good shots to the body he looked like the one in the better shape. Once Haye's ankle went the fight turned completely. Haye was actually making the better combinations before that and Bellew was that knackered he couldnt even finish off a fighter with one leg.
