David Haye set to retire according to Froch
David Haye will likely retire from boxing this year, according to fellow British puncher Carl Froch.
Haye has talked about hanging up the gloves when he reaches his 31st birthday this October but after being outclassed by Wladimir Klitschko in July, most people were expecting him to continue fighting in chase of redemption.
Froch spoke to the former WBA heavyweight king while holidaying in Jamaica recently and fully expects him to honour his word – and despite being Haye’s senior, he is keen to point out that retirement has not crossed his own mind.
“I had a nice five-hour tour of the island with David Haye,” Froch told the Daily Star.
“I don’t think he is going to fight on. He didn’t give me a definitive answer but listening to him, it doesn’t really sound like it.
“He wanted to go out on a better note. Whether he will fight again, personally I don’t think he will.
“He’s younger than me so it would make sense for me to announce my retirement – but I’ve got plans.”
