Former heavyweight champion, David Haye has revealed that a fight announcement is coming in the next two weeks. He last fought in a dramatic night at the 02 Arena. He was stopped in the bout by Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew.
He also sustained an injury to his achilles tendon during the bout which has forced him into a layoff. However, he was mentioned that an announcement is on the way. This happens to be the same time frame that Bellew gave for his own fight announcement. Could this mean that the rumoured rematch is on the cards?
World Boxing News are reporting rumours that the rematch is on the way. This comes after a major turning point in negotiations. According to the news outlet, the bout will take place in December. This is in-keeping with Haye’s estimate of his return.
He had this to say about his return: “I will hold the next fight in December. We will announce everything in the next two weeks, and the fight itself will be held in England. Of course, I want a fight against Joshua in 2018.” This quote comes via the Heavyweight Boxing UK Instagram account. The comments fit in with the rumours World Boxing News are reporting. Interesting times for boxing fans!
