Haye Wants to Fight Regularly!

On Saturday night, at the O2 Arena in London, David Haye gave a clear indication that he could still be a major player in the heavyweight division.

Even though Haye came in heavier than he normally would do for his bouts, the speed was still there and the power he was able to generate, through being heavier, was concussive enough to render Mark De Mori unconscious.

But, at thirty-five years of age, Haye knows that there is no time to hang about. Whilst he may not be old for a heavyweight, the former WBA champion is realistic enough to acknowledge that boxing politics can delay fights and reigning champions can be selective in who they pick as voluntary defences.

Therefore Haye is realistic enough to know that if he is to gate-crash the heavyweight title scene he needs to rack up some wins in quick time and against far more creditable opponents than the out-gunned De Mori.

Talking about his plans, Haye had this to say to the media in the aftermath of his first round demolition of De Mori,

“I’ve let the fans down so many times. I felt terrible about that.

“I fell short against Klitschko and I just couldn’t live with myself. I underperformed and let people down.

“I want another run at it and De Mori was a good start. I’m probably only at 70 per cent right now.

“I went out there and it was amazing. People were singing Ain’t No Stopping Us Now and it felt like the old days. It makes me want to keep giving the fans these nights.

“Even though it was only one round, they were part of it. They’re on the journey with me.

“I want to fight again as soon as possible. I feel healthy, my hands feel good and I’d love to get back in there in three months’ time.

“It will take two or three more fights before I’m ready for a world title. The heavyweight division is wide open.”


It is and Haye, if he gets the breaks required, could find doors open in front of him for a shot at a world title, against whom though is still the great unanswered question!
