Haye Looks Towards Joshua Fight at Wembley

Having not boxed, competitively, since July 2012 when he stopped Dereck Chisora, David Haye is still talking about a comeback.

In fact the former WBA heavyweight champion has aspirations of climbing into the ring to face the UK’s up and coming heavyweight sensation Anthony Joshua.

However, and all credit to Haye, he hasn’t been dismissive of Joshua in talking about the prospect of a bout with the Watford fighter, remarking,

“I definitely think an all-British contest will be there for us.

“Whether it happens or not depends on a lot of stuff. I’ve got to get back into the ring and he’s got to keep on winning.

“If we fight each other there would be no other location than Wembley.

“We’re both from London – he’s from north and I’m from south and it would be a massive, massive affair.”


And on Joshua’s progress through the ranks, Haye added,

“His progress has been fantastic, Eddie Hearn and Matchroom have done a fantastic job manoeuvring his career in just the right way.

“They haven’t rushed him, they have taken him too slowly. It seems like his progression is perfect.

“As long as he keeps doing what he’s doing and increasing the level of opposition the way he has done he’ll have a big future.

“For me and him, it depends when the time is right. If he continues on this path he’s probably only five or six fights away from fighting Deontay Wilder.

“He might even get there before me because he’s fighting so regularly I wouldn’t be surprised if he got to Wilder or Klischko before me.”


He certainly will unless you get back into the ring pretty sharpish David!
