Is David Haye About To Retire From Boxing?

by Shaun Brown

It’s been all quiet on the David Haye front since his second defeat to Tony Bellew earlier this month.

Haye, 37, was beaten convincingly by his British rival on May 5 at London’s O2 Arena with the fight waved off in the fifth round.

Their heavyweight rivalry has now come to a close. Bellew, has stated he is keen to face Andre Ward or Tyson Fury but the boxing world is still waiting to find out whether or not Haye will carry on or walk away from a career that brought him undisputed glory at cruiserweight as well as the WBA heavyweight title.


“Thank you for your kind words of love and support over the last couple of weeks,” said Haye (28-4, 26 KOs).

“I look forward to updating you on my plans for the future shortly, sometimes it takes a little while to find the right words.”

Given the performance by Haye in the rematch, and his history of injuries, the curtain should perhaps come down on a once glittering career.

In the meantime promotional duties continue for Haye as his joint venture with Hayemaker Boxing and Ringstar journey’s on to York Hall on June 15. Haye’s prize heavyweight asset Joe ‘Juggernaut’ Joyce (4-0, 4 KOs) will headline a card in what will be the first defence of his Commonwealth heavyweight title that he won against Lenroy Thomas on the Bellew-Haye 2 undercard.

[QUOTE=BUCSBronzemedal;18821613]He was clearly not recovered and yes this is not the David Haye we know and he won't be at this age but it seemed he was lying about the condition of his Achilles before his 2nd fight with Bellew,…

[QUOTE=Boxing Goat;18799895] His legs are shot and got worse when he got hit. Haye couldn't land anything in either fight. That's just not the real Haye. He's just about as far from his real self as Roy Jones was in…

[QUOTE=BUCSBronzemedal;18799571]He clearly has had an ongoing Achilles problem since his return. And it went again in the 2nd Bellew fight. Depending on how many times the Achilles has actually broken down in the last 2 years will determine whether he…
