Tony Bellew stops David Haye in fifth round of rematch

Tony Bellew scored his second knockout over David Haye in the last 14 months as the former star of "Creed" scored a fifth-round stoppage in a battle of former world champions at The O2 Arena in London.

Haye came out early and landed a couple of right hands. Then, Bellew scored two monstrous knockdowns. The first came from a huge counter right hand. Moments later, it was a smashing left hook to the jaw that sent "The Hayemaker" to the canvas.

Bellew continued to dominate, and in round five, Bellew another massive left hook that sent Haye to the deck for a third time. Left defenseless on the ropes and taking a ton of additional punishment, referee Howard John Foster stopped the fight.

Bellew, of Liverpool, improved to 30-2-1, with 20 knockouts, while Haye, of London, dropped to 28-4.
