“I said I wouldn’t be leaving it too long before I got back in the ring again and I’m not. I’m back doing what I do best at the beautiful O2 Arena in London on May 21st.
“After being out of the ring for so long it was incredible to be fighting in a capacity crowd at The O2 arena in front of my loyal fans,’ said Haye of his first round blowout of De Mori.
‘I felt so cool and calm in there. I don’t believe any heavyweight in the planet could have taken those punches. Now is my time to prove they can’t. The Heavyweight division is once again incredibly exciting, with a number of talented fighters vying for the World Titles.’
