Haye: In an ideal world, this is what my plan would be - I***8217;ve accomplished one part of my plan, which was to be undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world, once I***8217;m at heavyweight, I***8217;m not going to box into my 31st year. You know, I***8217;ve been boxing since the age of 10 years old, 20 years in the game is enough for me. But what I***8217;d like to do then, I***8217;d like to challenge whoever***8217;s regarded as the number one mixed martial arts fighter.

I***8217;d probably have to train for a year...

He's the undisputed cruiserweight champ from England who just knocked out enzo macherinelli a few weeks back. He ko'd Jean Mark Mormeck before that and now he's getting ready for a move to heavyweight.

I doubt he'd do much, but you never know.

does anybody even know if he has any mma history ?
no so stop just tagging him as a boxer.

with his physic its entirely possible has has natural talent for the ground game. i mean, look at chuck liddel and keith jardine, neither has any skills on the ground, only takedown defence.

Chuck Liddell has a purple belt in BJJ under John Lewis. Well, he had a purple belt a few years ago. He may have since got his black belt.

i know hes got good wrestling skills etc but he hasnt shown em for yrs. hes all stand up and take down defence, which means that haye has a decent chance of competing imo,, whether he will be the next houston alexander remains to be seen lol

and that comment is based on what ?

alot of mma stars are ****ed if it goes to the ground.
look how "well" matt serra did against gsp on the ground.
or how "well" koscheck did on the ground against gsp.
or how "well" franca did on the ground against sherk.
or how well houston alexander did on the ground against Silva.
the list of top fighters dominated on the ground COMPLETELY is huge.
also, alot of the mma fighters are mainly standup fighters anyway, who learn slightly different techniques than boxers, like where they hold their hands and head movement, stuff a boxer would pick up really quickly.

u guys put way too much stock in the gap between mma and boxing.
the reason not many top boxers move to mma is because paydays of a few hundred grand dont compare to the millions they can make boxing.

only now that purses are increasing in UFC are boxers considering it.
if the UFC continues its meteoric rise, in 10-15yrs i think many boxers will be crossing over, for a new challenge, and of course the acclaim that goes with it.

yeah alot of em may find it too much, but lets not forget, alo
