David Haye has decided to forget about Vitali Klitschko for the time being and continue his own boxing career, as the Daily Mail reports Haye will return to the ring on July 6. The opponent is supposedly "ranked," which can mean anything in boxing, since some of the world's mandatory title challengers aren't particularly good fighters.
Haye, 33, hasn't fought since last July, when he and Dereck Chisora got together for an outlaw brawl at Upton Park, which Haye won via fifth round TKO, proving clearly superior. Before that, he hadn't fought since a brutally disappointing loss to Wladimir Klitschko in July 2011, so apparently July is David Haye's working month these days.
If Haye wants to be a truly active fighter with goals again, then that's good news for the heavyweight division. Say what you will about his personality, and much of it will probably be true or at least deserved, but he's a good fighter and a guy who brings eyes to the sport.
As for Vitali, he says he's still not ready to announce whether he plans to continue fighting or retire into politics.
