Haye to fight once at HW and then look for Mormeck

Press Release: European cruiserweight champion David Haye has a new target in the wake of Jean-Marc Mormeck's recent world title win over hated rival O'Neil Bell.  "I'm really looking forward to fighting Mormeck," said Haye. "I think our styles will make for a great tear up but I'm convinced that I have the ability to beat him. Haye is rated #1 by the WBC, and Mormeck has the WBC and WBA belts, so the fight could become a reality. First, Haye, 18-1 with 17 KOs has some heavyweight business to take care of. He is scheduled to face Tomas Bonin, a Polish heavyweight with a record of 37-1 with 20 KOs. That bout is slated for, at Wembley Arena in London on Friday, April 27. The 33 year old Warsaw man is best known in the UK for pushing Audley Harrison to the limit before suffering a controversial ninth round referee stoppage almost three years ago.

"My next opponent is a lot bigger than me and I know what to expect in that situation," said Haye. "The last guy I fought, Fragomeni, came at me and I stopped him in his tracks but Bonin presents me with a much bigger problem. I want these kind of fights that put me in with a guy who can wreck my plans."

At six foot three inches tall and heavily muscled, Haye has struggled greatly in the past to make the cruiserweight limit and is relishing the opportunity to try out a new division.

The "Hayemaker" is currently training in Tenerife for Bonin while Maloney is engaged in a tug of war with Mormeck's promoter Don King over where the cruiserweight showdown will take place, with a likely date penciled in for this autumn.
