Haye: Not Afraid To Retire, But I Want To Be Number One

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former two division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24KOs) is still waiting for WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko to make a decision regarding his future. Vitali will either starts a full time career in politics or continue to fight. Haye's last appearance in the ring was July's fifth round knockout of Dereck Chisora.

Haye wonders if the July fight was his last. Before he walks away for good, Haye wants to secure one final title shot and he hopes the opponent is Vitali.

"I’m left wondering whether I’ll ever wear a pair of boxing gloves again. My last fight was a fifth-round knockout of Dereck Chisora in July but a big part of me hopes that won’t be my last ever ring outing. Yes, I’ve achieved enough to walk away content and happy were that to be the case. But, at 32 and still in my athletic prime, I can’t help but feel there is unfinished business in the heavyweight division," Haye stated in the London Evening Standard.

"The prospect of retirement doesn’t scare me. I’ve always planned on retiring at a young age, with my faculties intact. Also, unlike some of my peers, I have plenty to get on with away from boxing. But the real game is in the ring and by this time next year I want to be recognized as the undisputed number one in the heavyweight division."
