David Haye did choose to retire early for a heavyweight at 31 years old. It was a bit of a silly decision that Haye and Adam Booth came to many years ago, that Haye would do all he could in the sport and then retire at 31. But for a heavyweight 31 is very young to retire. David Haye, now 32, is actually in his prime for a heavyweight. While it's true that all people reach a peak at different ages and wear and tear can count for a lot, David Haye hasn't really had many tough fights where he's taken huge punishment. Haye's boxing style is elusive, he's an in and out type of fighter. He gets inside, does some damage and gets back out of range.
David Haye coming back is good for British boxing, actually it's good for boxing world wide. It pumps a bit of much needed energy into the heavyweight scene. And it also makes things that little bit tougher for up and comers like Tyson Fury and David Price. Sorry to say, but If either Fury or Price ends up fighting Haye they have a good chance of being out classed, and worse still for them at least, knocked out. Tyson Fury Vs David Haye would be a fight the fans would want to see. It would also generate some big money.
