Newly crowned WBA heavyweight champion David Haye will defend his title for the first time on the 3rd April at Manchester’s MEN Arena. Having beaten Russian giant Nikolai Valuev in Germany last year, Haye has set his sights firmly on former two time heavyweight champion John “The Quietman” Ruiz. A wide range of tickets including ring side seats are currently available on Europe’s biggest ticket exchange viagogo.
Having vacated his WBC Cruiserweight crown in the summer of 2008, David Haye’s life as a heavyweight has seen him beat fellow British boxer Monte Barret and defeat Nikolai Valuev to become the first British heavy weight champion since the great Lennox Lewis. Haye has made no secret of his desire to win every heavyweight title available, which would mean fights with Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko. Whilst the mouth watering prospect of those fights waits for another day, Haye must first get through proud American veteran John Ruiz.
