A former world heavyweight boxing champion, David Haye, announced his retirement from the sport on Tuesday following his defeat by Tony Bellew in May.

The 37-year-old Briton won 28 and lost four of his 32 fights since turning professional in 2002.

“Today I announce my retirement from professional boxing. They say you can’t play boxing.

“Yet, as I write this retirement statement, and reflect on my time in the sport, I can’t find a better way to describe the ride…,” Haye said in a statement on his website www.hayemaker.com.

“This is not the end of my story. It’s simply the start of something new.”
