From Left Field. David Haye Gets His Big Fight.

David Haye promised his fans a big fight earlier in the week. Many thought he was finally announcing a bout with Briggs. The announcement was much bigger than that. David Haye is the mandatory challenger for the WBO Heavyweight title. Joseph Parker will be fighting Ruiz Jr for the vacant title on the 10th of December in New Zealand. That date may be moved back a few weeks. The winner of that fight will have 120 days to fight David Haye. So Haye will get a big shot at the WBO title before the 10th of April 2017. It would be a huge statement if he took the Bellew fight before this & won, moving right into a world title fight. 


  1. So not right he gets a shot at any title after his last two joke fights!!! Hope he gets mullered then disappears from boxing! It's all about £££'s nowadays! He was awesome & now he's just ripping ppl off

  2. I agree that fighting Bellew at heavyweight would be good preparation for Parker or Ruiz, however if Haye has to drop weight to make a catchweight then that would weaken him for the Bellew fight and affect his chances of beating Parker or Ruiz. I'm sure David has the sense to realise this and won't allow a catchweight for the Bellew fight. This could stop the Haye-Bellew fight happening, however a world title fight is much more important than any domestic clash.
