Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye officially retired on his 31st birthday earlier this month but has admitted that he could be tempted back if either Wladimir Klitschko or older brother Vitali make him a decent enough offer.
Haye, who has revealed he is to pursue a career in acting, launched his biography Making Haye on Thursday and his book simply said he had “retired from fighting anyone without the Klitschko surname".
Regarding his future Haye said: "The book leaves it open a little. You never know, there’s always another chapter, whether it’s me retiring and you never hear from me again, or because I go out there and become a big success with the acting. It’s the end of one chapter and there are plenty of chapters to come in the rest of my life.
"Only time will tell whether the Klitschkos need me more than I need them. They won’t believe that. But it depends what they want out of boxing. If they want guaranteed easy victories then they can do what they’ve always done but if they want a tough challenge you’d think they would want to beat down my door.
"But if they’re not interested in fighting then fair enough, I’ve moved on. It obviously wasn’t meant to be."
