Haye Warns Heavyweights as Comeback Presser is Set

David Haye will officially announce his return to boxing at a press conference on Thursday as he bids to win another world heavyweight title.

The 32-year-old Briton has not fought since beating domestic rival Dereck Chisora by fifth-round stoppage in a grudge match last July and has stated on numerous occasions since then that only a fight with either of the Klitschko brothers would tempt him back into the ring.

However, IBF, WBO and WBA champion Wladimir, who comfortably beat the Londoner in 2011 on points, will face Francesco Pianeta in May and WBC belt-holder Vitali has thus far resisted Haye's advances and is rumoured to be thinking of retirement.

Should that come to fruition, Haye, the former undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world, would probably have to fight a contender to put himself in prime position to challenge for another world title.

His promotions company, Hayemaker, today announced the press conference.

They said that Haye had in recent months resisted the urge to box but added: "That is soon to change, however. Heavyweights be warned, 'The Hayemaker' is back."

There would be no shortage of options for the former WBA heavyweight champion, with fellow Britons Tyson Fury and David Price making a name for themselves in the division.

Alexander Povetkin - the WBA's 'regular' titleist - would be a more likely choice of opponent for Haye, who would strengthen his position for a re-match with 'super' champion Wladimir if he is victorious over the Russian.

Haye may have to reapply for his British Boxing Board of Control licence after fighting under the Luxembourg Boxing Federation banner against Chisora, with the BBBoC refusing to sanction their bout as a result of a shameful brawl between the pair in Munich in February 2012.

Since his triumph over compatriot Chisora, Haye appeared in ITV reality show 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;13185300]Why would Povetkin fight Haye when he's set for a Wlad fight anyway.[B] The other contenders in general will be running away from Haye,[B] rather than risking their ranking status fighting him. That's the general pattern too; fighters avoiding other…
