David Haye Announces Boxing Comeback At 40, His Opponent Is A Billionaire

  David Haye will return to the ring and make his shock boxing comeback on September 11. Yes, you read that right. What's more, Haye's opponent has already been lined up and it's a grudge match. Apparently. So, Haye, 40, will face Joe Fournier on the undercard of Oscar De La Hoya vs. Vitor Belfort next month. Haye vs. Fournier will be eight, three-minute rounds and will go down as a professional contest rather than an exhibition bout, according to MIke Coppinger. Fournier, 38, is 9-0 as a professional but has fought no one of value. He last fought on Jake Paul's bill, beating musical artist Reykon. He was even signed up to Haye's promotional company, but their relationship turned sour - with 'The Hayemaker' looking to make the billionaire-turned-boxer pay. The for...
