DAVID HAYE was today fined £25,000 by the British Boxing Board of Control as punishment for his behaviour and comments surrounding his grudge match with Tony Bellew back in March.

The former two-weight king was stopped in the 11th round after rupturing his Achilles tendon halfway through the fight.

Prior to the contest, Haye punched Bellew at a press conference and made frequent vows to end the Liverpudlian’s career and leave him hospitalised.
