Default David Haye, how can you retire after only 27 fights?

Back in the day you were learning your trade and after 27 fights you might be ready for a domestic title shot what is going on today? Ron Lyle Jerry Quarry Oscar Bonavena Ken Norton would have taken Haye to places in the ring he never new existed , what a joke

**** it, he has every right to look after himself however he sees fit. Wasn't ever his biggest fan especially wit some of his antics, but its up to him to decide when enough is enough. The guy stepped inside the ring and fought for and won world titles, and for that he should be at least acknowledged and his decision respected.

tbh,retire after fighting vitali and or adamek/arreola.

owes the fans he let down and robbed a make up fight,a free to air fight,and a last good performance.

he was good,but could have/still could be/done better.

an outsider to watch him train,tweak his faults and improve him would have been good,like roach.

he never really fought in america!,wtf is with that!!!

never fought in vegas

hele either fail or get bored of this acting rubbish and miss fighting.

he should accept what ever deal from kbros,hes rich enough for several comfrotable life times now.

how can he retire on such a loss and below par performance,with no guts to go for the KO!.

he could carried on fighting top 10 opponents in Ameirca for a good few years,on a regular basis,beating them all and putting on exciting heavyweight fights with or without ever rematching/fighting a klit ,or even losing to both.

an active haye vs top/."top" 10 heavies being entertaining is better than klits boring our eyes to sleep and being no 1 and no2 but never fighting to sort out the best fighter in the division.

If Willie Pep, Sugar Ray Robinson and a whole host of the "old timers" were fighting today then they, likewise, would have had very few fights compared to the guys of the 30s/40s/50s.

There is more medical awareness today and with that comes medical restrictions; Fewer fighters are now registered meaning less oppotunity to fight as regular and there is less interest in attending boxing from the general public.

Haye also has wealth beyond the imagination of most of us and, boxing wise, achieved almost everything that he wanted to but all that he realistically could. Good luck to him.

He's definitely is in his prime now, but it's his call. He do what the hell he likes, it's his life he is risking in the ring none of us can chat sh*t about it. Achieved all the ambitions he set out to do, won titles in the 2 highest weight divisions and made a lot money. So he should be respected for that. Yeah he made some bad comments for sure.

If I can achieve just 10% of what he has I would be a happy man.

27 fights mostly as a cruiserweight. 1 title defense at that weight. Awful heavyweight.

His career was a joke. Never fought in america. fought once a year gone after 27 fights.
Joke

Joke

Yes he did. He fought on an ESPN Friday Nights Fight card.

And being one of the best Cruiserweights in history and winning a significant World title at heavyweight against a previously unbeaten fighter to whom he gave away a massive amount of height and weight is hardly a joke career.

If you hate Haye be honest, but don't let that dislike over-shadow the truth.

Fair play to him.

I mean, how much has he earned? 20/30 MILLION POUNDS?

What reason (s) has he got to stay in the game?

He is set for life.

At least we had another British HW champ after Lennox.
