David Haye comeback to be confirmed on Thursday

Big-punching heavyweight David Haye is set to announce the prolonging of his career at a press conference this Thursday in London, where the ‘Hayemaker’ is expected to confirm his pursuit of another world title.

The 32-year-old, who held the WBA title from 2009 to 2011 before a defeat to Wladimir Klitschko, last fought when becoming the first to stop granite-chinned Dereck Chisora last July.

He had hoped for a shot at veteran Vitali Klitschko before the WBC title holder hung up his gloves.


As it turns out, the elder Klitschko is close to confirming his retirement at 41. This scenario leaves Haye in a dogfight with several fighters in line for a shot at Vitali’s green belt.

The Londoner is on course to reveal his next move in two days.

Speculation is rife that a fight with British rival Tyson Fury is on the cards. However, a clash against a top ten contender from abroad is the more likely scenario for Haye’s first outing in a year.

Haye had vowed never to grace the ring from his 31st birthday in 2011 but further changed his mind to fight Chisora and has now reapplied for his boxing license to pursue his dream of becoming world heavyweight champion once again.
