David Haye, the undefeated sensation of the cruiserweight division, has communicated to the WBC his plans for his future in boxing in a beautiful letter written to the WBC President Jose Sulaiman.

The WBC wishes David Haye the best of luck in the heavyweight division and confirms complete support to him as well.

The WBC vacant cruiserweight title will be contested between Rudolf Kraj and Giacobbe Fragomeni.
