David Haye Enjoying Increased TV Show Appearances

David Haye has said he enjoyed taking part in 24 Hours To Go Broke because it was a nice change to be spending someone else's money rather than his own.

The boxer is one of the celebrities signed up to the new show, which challenges pairs of famous faces to blow £10,000 in 24 hours with strict rules on how it can be spent.

He said: "I'm used to spending my own money so to spend someone else's is always a bit of a treat to be honest."

David was paired with comedian Seann Walsh and sent to Cork: "I wasn't sure how we'd get on. I thought he'd be cracking jokes the whole time, but he was really cool and we bounced off each other, so it worked well."

Talking about trying to spend the money, he said: "It got late at night, so what do you do then?"

They decided to assemble some late-night drinkers and pay them to come along to an impromptu fancy dress party at their hotel.

"I was paying people to let me punch them in the stomach and all kinds of stupid stuff like that, but everyone had a giggle," he said.

David also spoke about his time in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!: "Prior to that, I'd never done anything where I could be myself. I was always trying to promote a boxing match in a press conference or weigh-in, and I had to give it the big 'I am'... O utside of the ring, I've got nothing to prove."

:: 24 Hours To Go Broke begins on Dave on Tuesday, May 13. David Haye's episode airs on Tuesday, May 20.

I think he said he wants to be an actor when he's done with boxing... I could see him in a guy Ritchie movie

[QUOTE=Bigdaddy_Vh;14542950]why do i have a feeling that if King can get the WBC to allow Stiverne an optional defense it will be against Haye?[/QUOTE] I been saying this for months even before this fight. I said if stiverne wins king…
