Former unified cruiserweight and WBA heavyweight world champion David Haye seems to be making big changes ahead of what is expected to be his comeback to the ring.

Haye, 34, hasn't fought since 2012 at Upton Park against fellow Brit Dereck Chisora in a real grudge match. Haye came out on top but has since endured a frustrating time with cancellations and injuries.

New advisor

According to reports, Haye looks set to sign with adviser Al Haymon, who seems to have an ever expanding client base including the likes of Floyd Mayweather. Linking up with Haymon may make a title shot more realistic for Haye sometime in the future.

Haye has reportedly been in Las Vegas training with Ismael Salas and there are rumours circulating that he will be leaving his long-term trainer Adam Booth.

Booth exit

Booth and Haye have been working together for a very long time and have built a hugely successful partnership to date. If it is to prove true that they will not be working together then it truly is shocking news.

This seems to have come out of nowhere but it is being speculated that Haye will now look to base himself in America. By doing so it may make it easier for him to throw himself into the mix for the WBC title currently held by Bermane Stiverne.

Speculation denied

Haye, in an interview with IFL TV, said that this next stage of his career could be the most successful and that he has been getting himself into fantastic shape.

Haye wouldn't be drawn on the speculation and claimed that currently nothing is in place but he did confirm that in the coming weeks there will be big announcements.
Haye has received a huge amount of criticism in recent times for pulling out of fights and for his loss to Wladimir Klitschko but having him back in the sport is good for boxing.

Exciting times

Haye brings much needed excitement to the heavyweight division and if he is fully fit and refocused then he could bring some real glamour back to the division.

He is hard-hitting, insanely quick and a very good talker. He has much of what is needed to be highly successful and at 34 he is now a more mature and experienced man.

Watch this space as big announcements are expected from the 'Hayemaker' in the coming weeks.
