Haye (27-2-25KO) is on the comeback trail to world level at the moment, with this fight been seen as a forgone conclusion by many bookmakers who are placing him as a hot favourite to get the win.
Should Haye come through Saturday night victorious, big domestic fights with heavyweight champions Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua could very well be on the cards in the near future, with Haye saying at a public workout this week that he feels the Fury fight would be much easier (hat tip to IFL TV for the upload):
