Swarzy Macaly caught up with professional boxer and former world heavyweight champion, David Haye, when he made a guest appearance at this year’s BBL Playoff Final at The O2 Arena. 

Renowned as one of the best boxers of his generation, Haye sat court side in support of one of the most exciting games of British basketball as favourites to win, Leicester Riders, took on the underdogs’, Sheffield Sharks. 


When considering his prediction for the game, Haye said, “I’ll go with the Sharks – they sound more dangerous!”

Similar to Haye always beating the odds, Sunday 8th May was an unforgettable day as the Sheffield Sharks overcame the Leicester Riders 84-77 to be crowned the BBL Champions 2016 – all the while proving Haye’s prediction true!

‘The Hayemaker’ will be at The o2 Arena again as he returns to the ring to take on Kosovo’s undefeated Arnold Gjergjaj this Saturday 21st May 2016. 

“It’s always nice to live the dream,” Haye said. “That’s what I’m doing at the moment and I’ll do it as long as I can.”

Will this weekend see Haye add another win to his record to advance closer to another title?
