David Haye Set To Woo British Boxing Public
15.04.07 - David Haye seeks to emulate Evander Holyfield's outstanding record by becoming the first British boxer to hold the World Heavyweight and Cruiserweight titles and takes a significant step towards boxing's Holy Grail when he meets Tomasz Bonin, the WBC No.11 ranked fighter, at Wembley Arena on 27 April. Haye, "The face of British boxing" must be admired for shunning the plentiful cruiserweight opportunities and risking everything by stepping up to fight at heavyweight for the first time against a world ranked, rather than "safety first" opponent..

Haye, a gunslinger of a fighter, has claimed 17 of his 18 victories by knockout and fervently awaits the opportunity to mix it with boxing’s big men in his continued quest for world domination. The opportunity should not be too long in coming for the 6' 3" South London resident who was recently named the mandatory challenger to Jean-Marc Mormeck, the WBA and WBC Cruiserweight champion, who regained his crown in Paris four weeks ago.
Bonin suffered his sole reverse in a 38 bout career at the hands of a peak Audley Harrison, who has since slipped in the ratings, while Bonin's stock has soared. Haye will be seeking a convincing victory to achieve the dream he shares with all young men from the time they first don a pair of boxing gloves - namely the opportunity to become world heavyweight champion and the No.1 ambassador for British sport.
In the chief support bout Peter Oboh, the most avoided light heavyweight, faces the likeable Tony "Oakey Kokey" Oakey for the British title.
