David Haye is the real deal
By Lewis: So as we already know former unified cruiserweight and WBA heavyweight champion the David “Hayemaker” Haye is returning to the ring hopefully sometime in September.
People have already started to slate the 33-year-old Haye by saying that he ducked unbeaten Tyson Fury as he did pull out of the fight twice due to injuries occurred while training. My opinion is the cut could of occurred intentionally to allow more preparation time after failing to meet Adam Booths standards of sparring young heavy giants like Richard Towers, Deontay Wilder and one of Eddie Chambers’ former victims but I doubt it really.
The second time Haye pulled out was serious and has had him out since his KO win over Chisora in July of 2012. Haye suffered a bad shoulder injury that required surgery to repair the problem. Anyway it’s time to forgive and forget. The main thing is he brings excitement to the heavyweight division and that’s why some boxing fans are hating on him, calling him a chicken because the annoyed fans didn’t get to see his style of fighting against Tyson Fury.
Their are some interesting match ups that can made en route to a world title. I would love to see him face 45-year-old Antonio Tarver, 42-year-old Shannon Briggs, Eddie Chambers and then the Winner of Deontay Wilder vs the WBC champion Bermane Stiverne.
Another route would be a warm up fight against Australian Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne, all British clash against former stable mate David Price and then a fight against unbeaten American knockout artist Andy Ruiz Jr.
