Haye Keeps Jabbing Joshua – “I Will Find A Way To Beat The Giant”

It’s a fight that isn’t making a lot of sense at the moment but David Haye is not done trying.

The former heavyweight champion of the world is confident that he can and will land a fight against the number one heavyweight in boxing, Anthony Joshua.

“At the moment he’s not on the radar. Realistically, after coming back from a major surgery, jumping in the ring with Anthony Joshua who is on such fantastic momentum, would be a little foolish. I need to get back in the ring winning. Once I am and if I’m back to where I believe I can be, then I’ll start beating the drum for that fight,” explained Haye to PSB Sports.

But before he can start banging that drum, he needs to prove himself first.

“Once I prove myself in December and am firing on all cylinders, I want the Joshua fight,” said Haye according to Sky Sports.

Despite the age gap and ‘AJ’ being a world champion, Haye believes he can find a way to win.

“If I get in the ring with him, I will find a way to beat the giant, he is 10 years younger, three inches taller and three stone bigger and I love and relish that kind of challenge. He is the number one and for good reason. You have the likes of (Joseph) Parker and (Deontay) Wilder, but ‘AJ’ has all the momentum and I aim at the very best,” commented Haye.

So far Haye has not revealed who will he fight next but he has promised that once everything is ‘signed, sealed and delivered’, he will make the announcement.

Meanwhile, Joshua is stepping into the ring against a tough customer in Kubrat Pulev, the IBF mandatory challenger. Haye is not expecting any upsets from the Bulgarian.

“I do believe though that against Pulev, you will get a world-class performance from the heavyweight champion of the world. He can unify titles as long as he is not against me,” told Haye.
