Tarver Fancies UK Clash, Maybe With David Haye?

By Nick Halling

Former world light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver (30-6, 21KOs) has expressed an interest in fighting in the UK. The Magic Man clearly feels he has some tread left on his tires, and fancies mixing it up onthe British heavyweight scene.

Tarver has been busy banging the drum on social media for a fight with former WBA champ David Haye whos own status remains up in the air following shoulder surgery. Tarver reckons its a guaranteed sellout which will end in a knockout. And hes probably right on both counts.

If Tarver is serious about this, the news will have already been picked up on the radar of the leading UK-based promoters. It might also give Haye an additional incentive to formally announce his future intentions. Its a sure-fire payday all round.

And if anyone might be tempted to suggest that Tarver might be a little long in the tooth for this sort of thing, at 45 years old, there are plenty of precedents. James Tony boxed in a Prizefighter event late last year at the same age, and Matt Skeltons 47-year-old bones are being dragged off his sofa to face rising star Anthony Joshua next month.

Haye is coming off serious surgery and a long layoff; he's badly need of a tuneup. I mean, look what happened to Martinez last weekend. Tarver can hang at heavyweight, man. This won't be the hardest fight of Haye's career but Tarver will put him up to the test, for certain. This is a good fight.
