Speaking to BBC’s Radio Five Live tonight, the Brit confirmed he will finally get his much sought after Heavyweight title shot next June at a venue to be decided in London.
Haye told the BBC: "We agreed terms and just need to dot the I's and cross the T's. Plain and simple - this is how boxing should be.”
“We sat down and talked numbers that made sense for both sides and it's done and dusted..”
Haye became undisputed Cruiserweight champion by sensationally knocking out title-holders Jean-Marc Mormeck and Enzo Maccarinelli. His transition to Heavyweight boxing saw him demolish American Monte Barrett inside five rounds last month and now has his sights set on defeating arguably the world’s number one heavyweight.
“I have said from day one I am going to be the undisputed cruiserweight and heavyweight champion and I have not disappointed. I am not cherry-picking; I am going after the most dangerous fighter on the planet.” said Haye.
“This is going to be the biggest fight since Lennox and Tyson!”
