Haye talks Whyte v Chisora table incident, future Briggs fight
David Haye, former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion, visited the 5th St. GYM in Miami, Florida last week for some training.
Haye, 36, was accompanied by his friend Joe Fournier to do light work on the sandbag and warm-up for his fight with Tony Bellew in the UK.
Rey Sanchez of Ringsidefightingnews spoke briefly with Haye about the events between former opponent Dereck Chisora and Dillian Whyte.
“It was really funny to see how Chisora threw that table over Whyte’s head. I do not want to be misunderstood, but this situation at the press conference put this fight as one of the most anticipated for the weekend.
“I don’t know the reasons Chisora went over the edge to make that decision, I was surprised but don’t want to disrespect anyone. I understand that this fight went up in everyone’s estimation and we will all have an extra motivation to see it.
Asked about his next fight, Haye said.
“I have a scheduled fight against Tony Bellew in March at the O2 Arena in London, England, I haven’t yet opened my training camp, and I only exercise to maintain fitness. I will possibly come to train here to Miami for a while, and then I must travel to London to finish my preparation for the fight against Bellew.
Many people talk about a fight against Shannon Briggs, to which Haye replied: “If the money is right, I have no problem fighting Briggs. First, I must conclude my commitment versus Bellew and right now, my whole focus is on that fight in March 2017.”
