Wayne Rooney, Tim Cahill and many more in the football world sent out their congratulations for the renowned Everton fan

Tony Bellew's shock heavyweight boxing victory over David Haye was celebrated wildly by Everton-associated footballers on Saturday night.

Known by many as the man who 'fought' Apollo Creed's son in the latest Rocky franchise movie, Bellew drove former world heavyweight champion Haye, the overwhelming favourite to win at London's O2 Arena, to throw the towel in the 11th round.

Haye suffered an ankle injury midway through the bout but battled on against increasingly unlikely odds, and Bellew, 34, finished off his 36-year-old opponent with a second knockdown.

Wayne Rooney, Tim Cahill and Jamie Carragher were among the football icons to tweet their congratulations for Bellew in the hours after his triumph, which sets up an expected fight with Anthony Joshua.

Congratulations @TonyBellew. Buzzing for you!

Surely there cannot be a rematch! Their dislike for each other is what sold the fight . They are like best mates now. Bellew

Bellew was a 5/1 long shot to win the boxing fight against his more revered opponent, who famously defeated Nikolai Valuev in 2009 to become WBA champion in the heavyweight division.
