After winning his fight against Corey Anderson at UFC London in spectacular fashion, Jimi Manuwa called out boxer David Haye in the post fight interview in the octagon by saying ‘David Haye let’s do this, we’re the two hardest hitters in London’.
The MMA India Show also spoke to Jimi who came on the show as a guest and he repeated his call out of David and said it would make a great co-main event on the fight card headlined by Flyod-Conor (if it happens…which looks like it probably will).
When David was asked by a fan on an Instagram Q&A if he would entertain a fight with the UFC star, Haye said: ‘The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. ‘I was very impressed with his quick knock out the other night at the O2 Arena. If any of the mixed martial artists can convert over to be a successful boxer he has definitely got the body shape and style to do so.‘Yeah we have heard from Manuwa’s management and UFC so it is something that we are looking at at the moment. ‘Obviously it is a little way off being confirmed. But it is a fight that would unify a lot of the fans from both UFC and boxing and make a mega event.’
Well, that was straight from the horse’s mouth.
