David Haye to keep October retirement promise

April 27th, 2011 by Liam Tailor

David Haye has once again stated his desire to retire from Boxing in October, even if it means he will never be able to fight Vitali Klitschko.

Haye will take on IBF/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko in July, with a victory possibly leading to a match with WBC champion Vitali. However, Vitali is scheduled to take on Tomasz Adamek in September and therefore would not be able to take on Haye until 2012. Unless Haye changes his plans, his fight with Wladmir will be his last as he is adamant that he will retire in October before he turns 31.

In a meeting with Wladmir in Manhattan yesterday, Haye said: “I’ve set that date [retiring in October when Haye turns 31] from when I was young and I always try to stick to my goals. You have timelines and if you achieve what you want to achieve in those timelines why not stick to your goals?”

David Haye v Wladimir Klitschko tickets are available now.
