Watch: David Haye Brutally Massacres Mark De Mori In One Round

We are delighted to have David Haye back!

David Haye made a sensational return to the ring at London’s O2 Arena with a brief but brutally impressive display against Croatia-based Australian Mark de Mori on Saturday night.

The Bermondsey bomber, who hadn’t fought since he blasted countryman Dereck Chisora away inside 5 rounds back in July 2012, entered the ring at a career high 227lbs for the bout, but he wasn’t slowed down by his newly accumulated muscle mass in the slightest. Nor did Haye show any signs of ring-rust or the ill effects of the shoulder injury that had sidelined him for so long.

The former undisputed world cruiserweight champion and WBA heavyweight titlist took the centre of the ring from the get-go and didn’t waste much time in feeling out his foe. He was throwing shots that did justice to his “Hayemaker” moniker from very early on and you could see that he was gunning for a big finish. De Mori seemed completely out of his depth and overawed by the handspeed that Haye still possesses, as he backed away constantly without throwing much discouragement in his pursuer’s direction.

Before long Haye pinned De Mori against the ropes near a corner and landed a brutal right-hand that buckled the legs of the once-beaten Aussie, a brutal follow-up left-hook robbed what remained of De Mori’s consciousness. The 33-year-old dropped to the floor with his arms extended and stiffened as the referee called a halt to proceedings.

In the aftermath of the bout, Haye was asked about the potential of a fight between he and newly crowned world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, with whom he has a long and colourful history. Haye, however, dismissed this all-British contest and instead reiterated his earlier claims that he was more interested in another domestic dust-up.

“I said I’d work my way up the rankings, he[Tyson Fury] said even if I do so he’d relinquish the belt – so why bother? Why not go for the bigger, better fights? I think a fight between me and [Anthony]Joshua would be way bigger than a fight between me and Tyson Fury”.

“I believe that fight is a fight that can be made later in the year”.

That would indeed be a massive and tremendously exciting fight, which is exactly the kind of bout that Haye stated he is looking to make in this latest chapter of his career.

“That’s why I’m back in boxing – for the big fights”.

The heavyweight division is certainly more interesting with David Haye back in it’s ranks.
