David Haye Retires From Boxing

The British Boxing Board of Control has today confirmed that David Haye doesn’t wish to renew his licence. The former WBA Heavyweight champion has come in for alot of stick following his loss to Wladimir Klitschko last July when he lost his WBA world title by a unamimous points decision in Hamburg.

Haye, who celebrates his 31st birthday on Thursday has always said he would not fight on past the age of 30.

It was thought that Haye would make a comeback bout against Vitali or a rematch with Wladimir, who holds the WBC title.

Board secretary Robert Smith speaking on BBC Radio 5 he added that he had received an email from David Haye stating that he doesn’t want to renew his licence.

He added; "According to the email I received, he is no longer wishing to renew his licence."

When asked if he had thought a Haye-Klitschko rematch had been likely, Smith added: "It doesn't really matter what I think, it's up to David and Adam (Booth, Haye's trainer and manager). Obviously his last fight must have been bitterly disappointing for him, but if you look at his career as a whole he has been very good to the sport and we wish him well.

"There are many instances when heavyweights can go on longer than the smaller weight divisions but he has his whole life ahead of him, he has achieved a great deal and good luck to the man.

"You dedicate your life to your sport and to find something after that endeavour is very difficult for anybody." Best Blogger Tips
