David Haye vs Ismail Abdoul, EBU (European) Cr...
David Haye still has plans to clean up the heavyweight division before retiring from boxing at the age of 30, a plan devised when he was a teenage amateur.
.
Britain’s WBA heavyweight champion is expected to confirm on Tuesday his proposed second defense of his title against London rival and European heavyweight champion Audley Harrison.

 .
After that Haye has his sights on  unifying the division within the next 12 months, meaning he hopes to meet the other division champions the Klitschko brothers.

 .
Although Haye 29, has admitted to sitting down with the brothers to discuss potential fights against Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, the parties couldn’t come to an agreement on fight payments and discussions broke down in the early stages of negotiations.

 .
 .
Haye though is still adamant that he will leave the sport next year, so lets hope by then that the big fights Haye says he wants come off soon, otherwise it could have fans thinking, if he never gets to share a ring with the Klitschko brothers that he took the easy way out. 

 .
“I’ve said from when I turned pro I’ll retire when when I’m 30, so that gives me until October 13 next year,” Haye said. 

 .
“A lot of people think it’s a stupid deadline. It made a lot more sense when I was 17. Now that I’m closing in on 30 and there are these massive fights around the corner, 30 perhaps isn’t as old as I thought it once was. 

 .
“Now there are potential multi-million pound fights against anyone I want, people seem to think it’s a silly thing to do. But I’ve always stuck to my guns.”
