David Haye Will Retire on Thursday, or Wait For Vitali

By Chris LaBate

It is now decision time for former two division champion David Haye (25-2, 23KOs). For nearly two years, the British boxer has discussed a probably retirement on his 31st birthday. This coming Thursday, Haye turns 31-years-old. After his July decision loss to unified champion Wladimir Klitschko, Haye vowed to retire from the sport - unless Wladimir gave him a rematch. During the last couple of weeks, Haye softened his stance and said he was willing to postpone his retirement for a fight with older brother Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40KOs), the WBC champion.

Vitali has been vocal about his goal of getting Haye in the ring and knocking him out, but Haye's manager and trainer, Adam Booth, told Dave Anderson of The Mirror that time is running out and no offer has been received from Vitali's end.

Booth has applied the pressure. They gave Klitschko's side a few days to send in an offer, or else Haye is possibly going to retire.

“It’s one thing him saying he wants to fight David and another them ­actually offering something. The status quo is unchanged. Next Thursday is when David will make his decision. That’s his birthday and he said he would retire when he was 31," Booth said.
