David Haye vs Tony Bellew is shaping up to be one of the fights of the decade this Saturday night.
 
There’s been plenty of talk about this match-up, with the odd ‘slap’ thrown, but to provide well known stats would do a disservice to this fight. Sportingbet.com has produced for British Boxers an alternative analysis for the all-British fight, with a particular focus on how Northern boxers do against Southern ones.
 
All the information is available in the graphic attached but key stats are below:
 
[sam id=”1″ codes=”true”]
  • Bellew has a slightly better win percentage against fellow Brits with 12/13 (92%) compared to Haye’s 9/10. Both fighters have the same knockout rate – 67%
  • There will certainly be ring rust – as Bellew has fought almost three times as often as Haye in the last five years. However as the rustier boxer, Haye has won 4 out of his last fights. Bellew, on the other hand, has won everyone one of his last five fights when he’s been the sharper boxer.
  • Bellew has won all his fights in London, with two knockouts, whilst Haye has one loss to his name. However, both have a spotless record at the O2. 
  • Northerner vs Southerner – Four out of the last six fights between a Northerner and Southerner for the heavyweight title has ended with a Northern fighter winning.
