Yep he is top 10. I made a call for this fight in a previous thread. JD has fought nobodies but has looked pretty impressive at times and is a big big puncher. Very happy about this fight.

David Haye's proposed opponent JD Chapman on November 15 has pulled out of a fight with him, but Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer is still confident that he will be in the opposite corner at London's O2 Arena in two months' time.

Haye's manager and trainer Adam Booth said that Chapman (29-0, 26 KOs) is the third opponent to pull out in the last four days.

Schaefer revealed he spoke with Chapman's representatives before the press conference and is confident a deal can be made.

"I have a pretty good feeling that JD Chapman will accept the fight," Schaefer said.

"I've spoke to his people. I'm pretty confident JD Chapman will show up on November 15.

"I've never experienced something like that. I had a conversation with Shelly Finkel, who is the manager of Wladimir Klitschko, and he said they will accept a fight. At that level it will be okay."

Haye himself expressed his disappointment at the news, but is hopeful the American will have a change of heart.

"He comes to brawl," Haye said. "I haven't seen his fights but I liked the sound of him. He hadn't fought anyone but had never been knocked down.

"I love the thought of fighting a guy who is the same size as Klitschko. I hope we can shame him out of his hole and he'll come and fight."

Booth earlier spoke about how sudden Chapman's pull-out was and revealed rumoured opponent Kevin Johnson asked for too much money.

"He didn't get on the flight," Booth said. "He said I'm not coming to England to get knocked out."

"This after agreeing a substantial amount of money. He is the third opponent in four days to agree terms and then to pull out.

"These opponents are running away from an allegedly chinny cruiserweight.

"Hopefully his balls will drop again and he will take the fight

"We will have an opponent on a similar level to a high profile lightweight a few weeks ago, but on this occasion the home fighter will win.

"We've got three more (names). I'm not telling you who. There is some strategic interference going on. This is boxing."

"This has happened all the way through David's career.

"It's annoying who wants to have to do the work three times over.

"I'm not going to mention they're names because I'm hoping they will come back to me."

"We went after Kevin Johnson but he over-negotiated his position."
