David Haye Video clip Rating: / 5
Former World Boxing Association or the WBA Heavyweight champion David Haye has announced that he is set to return to competitive boxing once again, but has ruled out a renewal of his rivalry with fellow Englishman Tyson Fury.
The former Cruiserweight fighter has not fought a competitive match in the last three years since he defeated Dereck Chisora at West Ham United’s Upton Park in July 2012 and pulled out of two scheduled bouts against Tyson Fury in 2013 due to injuries before announcing his retirement from the sport.
But Haye has now confirmed that he does plan to return to the ring once again and plans to fights later this year. However, Manchester born Fury can rule out pencilling in a date for a potential match against Haye after he denied point blank that he will not even consider an offer to fight him. According to David Haye, he will be back for certain. He mentioned that he is no hurry to name an opponent or a date for the fight but he assured fans that he will return to the ring.
Haye said that he was present at ringside during the match between Carl Froch and George Groves last year and he realised that he really missed having those big stadium fights. But he went on to add that Fury can forget having one of those great stadium fights with him, saying that destiny had decided against giving Fury a big payday against him.

English boxer David Haye has been told that he will have to provide a bank guarantee if he wants to have a shot at a fight against Tyson Fury.
The former two-divisional world champion in Heavyweight and Cruiserweight divisions is looking to make another comeback to the sport this year, and he is looking for major fights that will put him back on the map for another crack at the world championship belts. And Haye realises a matchup against the undefeated Fury will provide a much shorter route to that goal as he targets a return to the top of the rankings.
But having pulled out of proposed fights against his British rival twice in one year, David Haye has now been told that he will have to pay up front if he wants to tempt the reigning European and British champion into considering the fight.
Fury is the mandatory challenger to the World Boxing Organisation or the WBO Heavyweight Championship currently held by Wladimir Klitshcko after he defeated fellow Englishman Dereck Chisora. But he did put his ambitions of a shot at the world title on hold for a while when he agreed a £ 10 million bout against the 34 year old Haye.
