Tony Bellew told 5 live Breakfast he “feels like his body has been hit by a JCB” after his dramatic victory against David Haye at the O2 Arena.

Haye, a strong favourite, injured his Achilles in the sixth round and the fight was stopped after a knockdown in the 11th round.

The Liverpool fighter also says retirement might now be an option – barring an irresistible offer for his next fight.

“I don’t know how many times I can do this to my body and put my family through it.”

Bellew also adds he wouldn’t like to see his children take up his chosen profession.
