With his win over Tyson Fury, David Haye has officially retired from boxing, although his career had been on the decline since 2012 when he knocked out Derek Chisora. After losing twice to Tony Bellew, Haye stepped away from the ring for three years before returning in September, defeating Joe Fournier on points in an eight-round exhibition. He immediately called out Tyson Fury, but this time it was different.
David Haye wins the WBA world heavyweight title
A few years ago, British boxing legend David Haye was unbeaten at cruiserweight and won the world cruiserweight championships. He then moved up to heavyweight and challenged Russian-born Nikalei Valuev for the WBA world heavyweight title. The British boxer won the fight by TKO and became the first heavyweight world champion since Lennox Lewis. Haye then lost to Wladimir Klitschko in a unification bout, but is still the only British boxer to unify the cruiserweight division.
Upon winning the title, Haye’s new management team, Salter Brothers Entertainment, began promoting the boxer. He won five world titles, including the WBA world heavyweight title. The former Cruiserweight World champion had won the WBA title twice. After winning the WBA title in 2010, Haye defended it once more, but Wladimir Klitschko won by unanimous decision in June 2012.
Although Haye won this fight, he needs to work on his confidence and his skills before diving headfirst into the shark pool. Although the title fight between Haye and Ruiz won’t drain power stations, it is still a must-win fight for both men. Booth and Haye will negotiate with Ruiz’s connections for a rematch. It’s unlikely to be a major showdown, but the showdown will be a spectacle.
The fight was highly anticipated after weeks of trash talking between the two contenders. Haye had been a strong favourite in the build-up to the fight, while Valuev had been gaining popularity in recent weeks. But bookmakers could not pick a favorite because the Russian had been the better fighter. In the end, Haye landed several combinations on Valuev’s furrowed brow, but his shots made little impact on Valuev’s giant frame.
Haye continued to taunt Valuev with slick boxing for weeks. He landed two good head shots in the first two rounds, but had little chance against Valuev in the rematch. The heavyweight champion had a rough time knocking Valuev down for the first time in his career, and the final round saw both men touching gloves, a sign of respect and admiration for the other’s skills.
David Haye has officially retired from boxing
Former professional boxer David Deron Haye has officially retired from boxing. Haye, who competed between 2002 and 2018, won numerous world titles in two weight classes and was the first British boxer to reach the final of the World Amateur Boxing Championships, earning a silver medal in 2001. In the process, he became one of the most decorated British boxers in history. Haye has a strong fan base, which he uses as motivation in his training.
After retiring from professional boxing, Haye set up a management company called Salter Brothers Entertainment. Haye announced his comeback fight on 24 November 2015. The match took place on 16 January 2016 at the O2 Arena in London and was his first fight since retiring from boxing. The full statement can be found here. The video below shows Haye announcing his retirement. After the announcement, Haye will be spending more time with his family and his children.
Haye had hoped to fight Vitali Klitschko but was denied a license in the United Kingdom. Instead, he was forced to fight Derek Chisora, who had a disciplinary issue against Haye. The fight ended in a draw. Haye has since returned to boxing and plans to focus on his promotion company. But he may never be able to make another comeback.
His decision to retire has many positive aspects. The sport of boxing will still have an important role in Haye’s life as a promoter. And while he will be retiring, his presence is important and boxing will be better off for it. In addition, his formal farewell to boxing is full of humility and honesty. David Haye’s statement is an impressive one. His career was one to remember, and he deserves all the accolades he earned along the way.
Haye’s career has been plagued with injuries. After a disastrous fight with Tony Bellew, Haye had to withdraw from boxing for months. The rematch was postponed because of his arm injury. But he eventually fought through it, despite the injury. The rematch was scheduled for December of that year, but Haye suffered a bicep injury and had surgery. It was announced one month after the fight.
David Haye will make close to PS1m from the title fight
Sky says David Haye will earn around PS1m from his WBA title fight against Nikolai Valuev. The former ABA light-heavyweight champion is the first Briton to win the WBA title. Haye is a shrewd businessman who meticulously planned his toughest assignment. He will use that money to chase other world champions.
In the lead up to the fight, Haye and the Salter Brothers struck a deal to air the fight on the comedy channel Dave, the largest non-PSB broadcaster in the UK. The fight was also broadcast live in 360° and via VR. Despite the recent injury to Haye, the boxing fight received a worldwide audience because it was live streamed via YouTube.
In November 2015, Haye won the WBA title by knocking out Tony Bellew. The rematch saw him knock the former champion out in just 55 seconds. The WBA title fight is unlikely to drain the power stations. It is a big deal for the British boxer, who will now be able to entertain his British fans. Although the fight was originally scheduled for an exhibition fight, Haye has now confirmed that he is set to receive close to PS1m from it.
Following the WBA boxing title fight with Pacquiao, Haye will be the first heavyweight fighter to challenge the Filipino for the WBA heavyweight championship. The bout will take place on the undercard of Oscar De La Hoya’s comeback fight with former UFC star Vitor Belfort. In an interview with Business Insider, Haye revealed that he will be making close to PS1m from the WBA title fight.
While many have claimed that Haye is a heavy-hitter, the fight was a war. Haye never seemed to come out of the running, and he could have ignited a scrap if he wanted to. Vitali Klitschko was not interested in scrapping and stayed out of Haye’s range throughout the fight. It was the latter who dominated the fight with his jab and controlled the proceedings.
David Haye’s return to the ring
With his win over Fournier, David Haye has reclaimed his WBA title, and his return to the ring was expected to be a success. But the British heavyweight has been training in the gym for several months now, and his upcoming fight against Lucas Browne could be a tune-up for a future opponent. Despite his reluctance to fight again, Haye’s comeback to the ring has earned him the WBA title.
This is Haye’s first title fight since retiring five years ago. He fought Carl Thompson in 2010, losing a close fight, and then fell to Wladimir Klitschko in 2011. The next fight was against Bellew in 2016, and Haye decided to retire after his loss to Klitschko. After the Klitschko fight, Haye was training with Adam Booth. He returned to the ring after the Klitschko fight, but this time, he is the one who’s going to win it.
Haye knocked out Chisora in 2012, but lost twice to Tony Bellew. His career took a hit after the loss to Klitschko, but he came out of retirement in September to beat Joe Fournier on points. After winning the fight, he immediately called Tyson Fury. The fight was a success and Haye has the chance to prove his worth.
The WBA boxing title is Haye’s first world title. He won in front of over 40,000 fans. Haye knocked Michael Chisora to the canvas in the fifth round. Chisora fought back, but the referee ruled that Chisora could not continue after the knockdown. This fight is one of the best-known bouts in the world today.
Although he is not planning to extend his comeback beyond September 11, the former heavyweight and cruiserweight champion is determined to make his comeback a success. He will fight former WBC cruiserweight champion Joe Fourier on the undercard of Oscar De La Hoya’s comeback against Vitor Belfort. If this fight is a success, David Haye may become a world champion once again.
