Haye vs Bellew 2 Betting Odds

Tony Bellew shocked the boxing world by jumping up in weight and defeating David Haye in 2017. Though Bellew picked up the TKO victory, that bout left more questions than answers.

Now the two Brits are set to run it back again on May 5. Despite losing the first bout, Haye sits as a -210 favorite with Bellew coming back at +170.

The biggest storyline coming out of the first fight was Haye’s Achilles injury. It turns out that the former heavyweight champion ruptured his Achilles in the sixth round of the bout but continued to fight despite being a sitting duck. Haye ate plenty of shots and appeared to be out on his feet several times but “The Hayemaker” managed to stick around until his corner mercifully threw in the towel in the 11th round.

With the end of his career looming, Haye replaced trainer Shane McGuigan with Ismael Salas to help recover from his injury and get in better shape. Salas has trained some of the best in the world – most notably Guillermo Rigondeaux.

Bellew himself has openly spoken about his life after boxing and has said that he can’t keep putting his body through the rigors of the sport. Even trainer Dave Coldwell has reportedly said he would be “over the moon” if Bellew retired after the first Haye victory.

With both men closer to the end than the beginning, you might be worried about this fight being a dud. I would advise against that thought process. Haye and Bellew simply do not like each other – something that has been made abundantly clear in the lead-up to both fights – and both have something to prove.
