Oh god, please no.

What Johnny was trying to say was that he'd quite like a few hundred grand to add to the retirement pot and he's willing to risk life and limb to get it. Fair play I suppose, who wouldnt?

I think Johnny should stay retired.

Enjoy is health, family and no doubt a decent wad of cash.

If the fight were to happen, I would expect Nelson to give Haye more trouble than Enzo did, primarily due to his movement and experience.

When you think of it, in hindsight obviously, Enzo was probably made for David Haye. Take nothing away from Haye, he was expected to win, though not with a brilliant KO in round 2!

Funnily enough I saw Jonny Nelson in a hotel a couple of weeks ago. Seemed a genuinely nice chap, I think he was chuffed I recognised him to be honest.

This fight is a bad idea for 'The Entertainer' though. I predict pain.

Haye should move to heavy and fight one of the champs... He doesn't need to acclimatise to the weight he should just go straight after one of the 'champs'..... He can do it. He reminds me of a young Lennox.

Ah, I see you speak fluent Nelson!
Johnny's a nice guy but I think Haye really wouldn't be even slightly tempted by this.

Would Haye really want to look after his weight for the next six months?

Ridiculous notion.

Haye KO1, by the way, if it ever happened. Nelson was a fine fighter and a decent champ, but he's never encountered anyone on Haye's level and was dropped and almost out of there by Ezra Sellers BEFORE this long lay off.
