So David Haye has given up in his quest for a fight against either of the Klitschko brothers.
But he is still to fight for a version of the World Heavyweight Title.
For those of you who've not heard, the Brit is to fight Nikolai Valuev on Saturday November 7th. The fight will be for the Russian's WBA Heavyweight Title who, for once, have not gone down the route of making Haye fight for their interim Championship first (Through 'Regular', 'Interim' and 'Super' Champions, the WBA will soon have 32 World Champions in 17 weight classes. Read Dan Rafael for more on this).
Due to the differences in fighting styles and size, I can't see this being a great fight. Haye will be giving away eight stone and about as many inches so you can expect to see him use his speed to outbox the Beast From The East.
Nonetheless, it will be a great event and hopefully Haye can win, propel himself onto a fight with one of the Klitschko's, and breathe some much needed life into the heavyweight division.
Roll on November.
