Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye is rumoured to be returning to the ring on July 6.
And if the rumours are true then he is plotting a route back for a crack at the world heavyweight title.
According the Daily Mail a comeback against a ranked-but-as-yet-unnamed opponent will represent a first step towards a mandatory world title challenge.
With WBC champ Vitali Klitschko showing no interest at all and pre occupied with his political career in his native Ukraine, it looks like Haye may have to work his way back into title contention by way of a mandatory position.
The other obstacle Haye must overcome as well if he chooses to fight again is to regain his British boxing license.
