The UK is home to some of the world’s most impressive boxers eager to make their reputations known around the world. Former World Boxing Association (WBA) champion David Haye is back in the ring, and ready to reclaim his title. But fellow British boxer Tyson Fury called the 32 year old former champion, nicknamed ‘The Hayemaker’ out for a match of their own in what Haye’s manager Adam Booth believes will be a fight for Britain to remember.
“David against Fury is the most natural heavyweight fight out there. It is the most logical high profile fight in Great Britain, if not the world, right now.”
The former two time world champion reentered the boxing ring last year after announcing his retirement in 2011. Haye is planning to challenge the Klitschko brothers for the world heavyweight titles once again, but the brothers have yet to agree to a challenge request from Booth and the rest of Haye’s management team.
However, Tyson Fury, an undefeated young boxer out of Manchester, challenged the Hayemaker following his reentry into the boxing ring last year. Fury is a confident and entertaining boxer, who staged a number of PR stunts to make his point, and convince Haye he was ready to take on a champion. Haye at first refused the challenge as he was focused on securing a title fight with one of the Klitschko brothers. However, Booth recognized a British heavyweight battle would be very entertaining for boxing fans, and would almost certainly drive business to bookmakers and online casino betting sites.
“Both boxers are great entertainers, Tyson is doing a great job inside and outside the ring, David is a former two time world champion and his celebrity status has never been higher and importantly both have a top-10 world ranking.”
Booth believes Haye will select an opponent for a fight scheduled at the end of June, and following that match, will accept the challenge from Fury. If Haye is victorious against his fellow British boxer, Booth hopes the Hayemaker can secure a title rematch against the Klitschko brothers.
