  • David Haye Tony Bellew

The 29-year-old McGuigan is highly regarded in the sport having guided Carl Frampton to world titles at two weights, and now also trains David Haye, George Groves and a number of top boxing prospects such as Josh Taylor and Conrad Cummings.

The former WBA heavyweight champion remained in hospital following his 11th-round stoppage defeat by Tony Bellew on Saturday night. "He shrugged and I said, "please, stop", then looked at Shane [McGuigan, Haye's coach] and said, "stop it, lad".

"I can't wait until March 4, when I am allowed to punch him legally, because I have done it before, I didn't mean to do it, but tensions were high and I ended up punching him in the press conference".

"I really think I got in his mind and messed it up - he needs to get into someone's mind but he couldn't with me". I wouldn't hold my breath if I were him waiting for that to happen.

Tony Bellew has put himself in contention for a shot at world heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

The fight ended in the 11th round, when Bellew literally knocked Haye out of the ring, leading Haye's side to throw in the towel.

McIlroy two ahead in Mexico despite short misses at finish
He came up just short of the green on the par-5 15th, setting up a simple up-and-down for another birdie to seize control. World number three McIlroy, 27, is playing his first tournament after seven weeks out with a rib injury.

"I could happily walk away from boxing tomorrow", he said hours later, adding he was more concerned about surviving his sport in one piece than dominating it.

What this fight lacked in skill or sustained action, it more than made up for in story and determination from both men.

It was a fairly even bout up until round 5 when David Haye went over on his ankle and had to fight wounded for next 6. Joshua did some research on Haye's doctor and is not surprised by the injury that was suffered on Saturday night. "I can't believe I've actually done it", he said. "It's nothing new! I'm going to shock a lot of people AGAIN on March 4th!"

"I'm edging towards the end of this insane game", he told the Fight Disciples podcast in the build-up to Saturday's fight. "I've just come down to his backyard, now he can come to mine".

"Looking at Tony Bellew's resume, recently, he's the current world champion in this fight. I'm at his mercy - I can't think of world titles now".

"I knew how good he was, he is exceptional".
