Check out Matt Hamilton’s Boxing Tonight!
David Haye, has not fought in almost three years is keen to face Anthony Joshua.
“I definitely think an all-British contest will be there for us. Whether it happens or not depends on a lot of stuff. I’ve got to get back in the ring and he’s got to keep winning. If we fight each other there would be no other location than Wembley. We’re both from London – he’s from north and I’m from south and it would be a massive, massive affair” says Haye.
Haye admits he has been impressed by Joshua’s progress thus far.
“His progress has been fantastic. Eddie Hearn and Matchroom have done a fantastic job manoeuvring his career in just the right way. They haven’t rushed him, they haven’t taken him too slowly. It seems like his progression is perfect. As long as he keeps doing what he’s doing and increasing the level of opposition the way he has done, he’ll have a big future. For me and him, it depends when the time is right. If he continues on this path, he’s probably only five or six fights away from fighting a Deontay Wilder. He might even get there before me because he’s fighting so regularly. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got to Wilder or Klitschko before me” acknowledged The Hayemaker.
Joshua will likely have already fought both David Price and Dillian Whyte by the time a Haye fight can be made.
