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.
According to David Haye, if Tyson Fury had fought him, he would have been lying on the floor after being knocked out after just one round and he would have gone laughing all the way to the bank and as a competitive fighter who loves doing what he does, he will not let it happen.
