DAVID HAYE has declared that he only has five fights left in his boxing career. After announcing Friday that his promotional company, Hayemaker would join forces with Richard Schaefer’s new Ringstar outfit, Haye sees a future for himself as a promoter.

“Realistically I’d say five fights in my mind is all I need to prove what I need to prove,” Haye said.

Though he does expect those remaining fights to encompass taking on the biggest names in the business. “Look at the champions, you’ve got Anthony Joshua, he’s probably the first target as he’s the guy who’s got all this momentum behind him. There’s rumbling’s over Tyson Fury making a comeback,” Haye said. “If he comes back I’m sure that he’ll want a big payday as he hasn’t had one yet. So I’m not sure what his situation is yet, so I’m pretty sure if he makes a comeback if it’s not myself, it’ll be Anthony Joshua.
