WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT FROM DAVID HAYE’S CAREER?
Carl Frampton Featherweight contender
Jean-marc Mormeck has to be one. Haye went over to Paris and knocked out the best cruiserweight on the planet. But beating the big man Nikolay Valuev was a big one just because of the sheer size of him. When Haye rocked him it showed the devastating power of the man.

It has to be the Jean-marc Mormeck win. He was away from home in an intimidating arena facing the number one in the division – whose style was all wrong for Dave – and had to overcome a bad knockdown. It was a night I’ll never forget.
Dave Coldwell Tony Bellew’s trainer
Probably the Valuev win for the heavyweight title and it happened when I was at Hayemaker. But the magnitude of the Klitschko fight in Germany stands out, too – apart from the fight itself. Then there’s the Maccarinelli win and him holding his arms out nonchalantly afterwards.

The lawless nature of the build-up to the Dereck Chisora fight which makes that night at Upton Park stand out. Not even my laptop getting covered in rain and flying beer took the edge off the mad atmosphere and vintage Haye finish.
