With David Haye announcing his retirement, we decided to look back at the distinguished career of the now 37-year-old.

A Bermondsey-native, Haye was a world champion at two different weights – and went lineal at one of them.

Arriving on the professional boxing scene at the age of 22, David Haye stood at the brink of boxing history in 2011 when he faced Wladimir Klitschko.

As his fiercely competitive heart finally gave in to a failing body, we decided to look back on a truly special career.
