British star David Haye quits boxing
London: Former world heavyweight champion David Haye has decided to quit boxing after his 31st birthday on Thursday.
British Boxing Board of Control Secretary Robert Smith has confirmed that Haye would hand over his fight license.
"I received an email on Monday advising me Haye would not be carrying on. The Board will discuss it on Wednesday, but there is no way we could go against his wish not to renew his boxing license. Without it, he can`t fight," a leading daily quoted Smith, as saying.
Haye has already stepped down as a boxing promoter, with super middleweight George Groves switching to SunSport`s Frank Warren.
Haye’s last fight in July ended in a loss of his WBA crown to Germany-based Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
