Former heavyweight champion David Haye announces retirement from Boxing

Former Heavyweight Champion, David Haye has decided to call it quit from boxing a month after his second defeat by Tony Bellew.

Haye, 37, was a two-weight ruler of the world after dominating both the cruiserweight and heavyweight scene at the peak of his powers.


But after failing to beat Bellew in their May 5 rematch, the lovable Londoner has finally confirmed he is walking away.

“My 16-year, 32-fight professional career was one of two halves,” he said.

“In the first eight years, everything ran smoothly. I had 25 fights and became the first ever British boxer to unify the cruiserweight division (WBA, WBC and WBO World Championships).

Haye, who enthralled fans with past rivalries against Enzo Maccarinelli, Wladimir Klitschko, and Dereck Chisora, paid tribute to his final nemesis, Bellew.
