David Haye says he is ready to take a fight against Anthony Joshua but adds he is ‘definitely interested’ in a fight with Cruiserweight world champion Tony Bellew, because his fans want him too!
“Ideally, I’d like Joshua. He is the guy who, in my opinion, is the most dominant heavyweight out there currently,”
“He is the guy who hasn’t put a foot wrong and he is the guy that’s making the most noise. Obviously being from Britain myself it’s the biggest fight.
“I’m in boxing for the biggest possible fights and getting a belt around my waist is exactly where I want to be.”
“People really want to see him (Tony Bellew) get battered that badly. People in boxing now are used to fighters jumping through weight divisions to make the fights that the fans want to see and if the fans want to see it then I’m definitely interested in it.
“As I said, I will knock him out with a jab, and I stand by that, it wasn’t just a flippant comment, I’ll genuinely knock him out with a jab. I’d like it to happen, whether he wants it to happen or not is a different thing.”
“There is saying you want to fight someone and then there is actually fighting someone – two completely different things – and he’s never been hit anywhere close to being hit as hard as I can hit so I think he might have talked himself into getting violently knocked down.”
