The former Cruiserweight kingpin who has promised much but delivered little at Heavyweight was thought to have been struck down by a career threatening injury after a number of pull outs in 2013. Earlier this year however the "Hayemaker" twitted out a picture of himself in the gym in what appears to be a clear sign that he will be returning to action at some point in 2014.
With Manuel Charr and Tyson Fury both being messed about by Haye in 2013 it's fair to say that some will be doubtful about any fights Haye may sign up for this coming year. This could see opponents looking to insert additional clauses into any fight contract and it could also see fans thinking twice about buying tickets whilst also putting doubt in to the minds of venues and television stations.
If Haye does return, as expected, then he'll obviously add a bit of character to the division though unfortunately the let downs from the big mouthed puncher would take a lot for him to reverse and some will never trust him again. It's a shame that he did promise so much when he first made a permanent move to Heavyweight as he really did dig himself a hole that he could never climb out of.
We're hoping that a more mature and more committed Haye will return in 2014, though it's unlikely that "big mouth" will manage to really "save the Heavyweight division" as he once promised.
