Bellew defeats Haye with second knock-out

Bellew lands another flurry of punches that sees his right hand finding the mark on Haye's jaw. Haye could not land anything that really troubled Bellew in the first, and Bellew showed he was risky on the counter-attack in the second.

The next round and a half devolved into a fencing match. Haye bravely got up, but his legs were betraying him, and when Bellew followed up with more unforgiving blows, referee Howard Foster stopped the fight. It was also his turn to pick up points by way of one-two combinations.

Haye knows there was only one victor and admits it could have been an error signing up to the fight.

Do Not Scrap Iran Deal, UN Chief Warns
Iran has denied ever seeking nuclear weapons and accuses its arch-foe Israel of stirring up world suspicions against it. Iran maintained that it had only been pursuing nuclear energy.

In the fateful round, the two boxers continued to circle one another. Haye got back up and tried to throw wild punches at Bellew which left him wide open for another knockdown as time expired in the third round, giving Haye a second knockdown. And ones which Haye will unlikely take too lightly.

But away from what Bellew calls the "circus", he faced family tragedy when brother-in-law Ashley died in a tragic accident in August while on holiday in Mexico.

But as it turned out Bellew had Haye's number once again, and after the opening two rounds, where Haye just about out fought his opponent, Bellew stepped up a notch and dominated the 37 year old. Bellew then suddenly went on the offensive and chased Haye across the ring before landing a right flush on the jaw to drop the Londoner for a count. Victories over John Ruiz and Audley Harrison put him on a collision course with Wladimir Klitschko, the IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion. Retirement seems imminent for the former lineal Cruiserweight king.

Amazon makes one final effort to snap up Flipkart
Reports already state that US-based retail giant Walmart is looking to buy a significant stake in the Indian e-commerce company. Flipkart's board had appeared to be leaning toward Walmart over Amazon because it thinks the deal will have fewer hurdles.

This time, Haye appeared to be struggling with a right ankle injury that flared up at the end of the third round, during which he was sent to the canvas twice by Bellew. "The way Bellew systematically took him apart was very impressive". The Liverpool native has now earned back-to-back wins at Heavyweight after first competing for a Light Heavyweight championship in 2013.

Bellew has set his sights on fighting fellow Briton Tyson Fury and American Andre Ward after his 30th win from 33 fights. Few expected the "Bomber" to crush the swarming Ilunga Makabu for the WBC Cruiserweight title either.

United Kingdom government disappointed by Lords votes on Brexit laws, vows robust action
