DAVID HAYE : I Will Upset Odds Against Anthony Joshua, Like Ali Against Foreman

Anthony Joshua and David Haye

David Haye believes he could repeat history against IBF, IBO, WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, like in the days of Muhammad Ali Vs George Foreman.

Comparing himself to Ali, He believes he could upset the odds against Anthony Joshua, as he will be treated as a huge underdog if the fight happens. 

“I would be a huge, huge underdog going into a fight with Joshua, I’m aware of that.
“He is 10 years younger, taller and heavier and I’m coming off a couple of injuries, but for me it’s like Muhammad Ali fighting George Foreman.

“They said Ali was old and finished, allegedly past his prime and everyone was worrying for his health but he somehow turned the tables.

“Even when he was past his prime, he beat the monster that was George Foreman. That would be me versus Anthony Joshua.”

Haye is preparing for his revenge fight against Tony Bellew on May 5 at London’s O2 Arena and has promised to quit his career, which spans 16 years, if he doesn't defeat Bellew.

Referring to Bellew as  Barometer for a potential future title Fight he said “A medium day is not good enough, unless I win in style I will retire.

“A medium day might be good enough to beat Bellew but beating Joshua, Wilder, Parker or anyone else who holds a title will be so far out of my reach what’s the point?
“I am not in there to get beat by these guys, I want to become the best in the division.

“Bellew offers a barometer but it is not just the win, if I knock him out in the three rounds but suffer a cut or knock down and it is a real battle, I will know.

“If I do not take him out in a destructive way and make it look like a complete mismatch then I see that I can start looking at titles.”
