Boxing champ makes Haye in Canary Wharf

Former boxer David “The Hayemaker” Haye let his pen rather than his fists do the talking when he met fans at a Canary Wharf book signing yesterday.

It’s not every day the Wharf is visited by a former world heavyweight champion, but all 6f 3ins of Haye didn’t look out of place at the Waterstone’s in Jubilee Place.

He was signing copies of Making Haye, the authorised story of his career including the night he claimed his WBA title against Nikolay Valuev in 2009.

Written by close confidant Elliot Worsell, it promises behind-the-scenes insights into the Bermondsey-born boxer’s most pivotal battles in the ring.

Haye only announced his retirement last month after losing his title to Wladimir Klitschko in the summer.
