I will be a champion again – David Haye

Thursday 25th September , 2014 12:21 pm

Former world heavyweight champion David Haye says he will reclaim his title once again – it is only a matter of time.

Haye, 33, has not fought since he beat Dereck Chisora in Manchester in July 2012 and his career has been in hiatus for some time.

He is currently in negotiations to fight out of the USA and is keen to make a long-awaited return after a string of injuries.

Haye told Sky Sports News: “The heavyweight division is a bit fragmented now. There are a few paths I could go down depending on the route I want, and that’s being worked on at the moment.

“Believe it or not I will be the heavyweight champion again. It’s just which way I go and how long it takes.

“There’s a bit of work to do yet but it’s exciting times ahead.”

Recent reports have suggested Haye has split with long-time trainer Adam Booth and the 6ft 3in slugger refused to be drawn on questions about their partnership.

Haye, who has held the WBO and WBA heavyweight titles as well as numerous cruiserweight belts, currenly has a record of 26 wins with 24 knockouts, and two defeats.
