Dan Rafael had an interesting piece today running down the potential options for David Haye's first fight in the heavyweight division. Haye has said he'll fight a "name" fighter and not some washed up, unknown tomato can. I'm guessing it could be a washed up, known tomato can, but I suppose that's better than nothing, right? Some of the guys included:
- Winner of Rahman-Toney
- Oleg Maskaev
- Jameel McCline
- Evander Holyfield
- Kali Meehan
Rafael indicated the Holyfield one is more of what a matchmaker might come up with, but the rest are certainly interesting names. Considering the state of the heavyweight division, there isn't a ton of talent, but it'd be nice to see Haye take on someone that people have some sort of inkling about.
Any other suggestions for who Haye should fight in his first fight?
