Haye handed back his Luxembourg Boxing Federation licence last September, after his July fight with Dereck Chisora, as the former WBA heavyweight champion eyes a money-spinning heavyweight title showdown with long-term rival Vitali Klitschko in 2013.

Klitschko, 41, who has entered into Ukrainian politics, is yet to make his mind up about returning to the ring.

Robert Smith, secretary of the British Boxing Board, has revealed that it should be a formality for Haye, though he may face an interview with the Board stewards.

Smith also welcomed "the competition" which will be created with Golden Boy Promotions, the LA-based company run by Oscar De La Hoya, applying for its UK promoters licence.

Golden Boy intend to run four shows a year in the UK, according to its CEO Richard Shaefer, who has been in London this week having had a meeting with Smith and chairman Charlie Giles.

Golden Boy unveiled the signing of Olympic middleweight bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo on Wednesday, with the understanding that they are looking to sign more British fighters. Ogogo has signed a five-year deal.

"Golden Boy will need a UK office, and a representative based here," said Smith. "But they are, of course, a leading promoter, and we do not foresee any great issues with them completing the application."

Ogogo is likely to make his debut on the undercard of Amir Khan’s next contest, with planning underway for it to take place in the UK on April 20. Khan, also promoted by Golden Boy, took part in the Football Association’s 150th anniversary celebrations on Wednesday, but headed to New York on Thursday to spend time with his fiancée.

Khan will marry before Ramadan, and will then fight again in November, his father Shah Khan revealed to The Daily Telegraph.

Frankie Gavin, unbeaten in 14 fights, makes his first defence of the British welterweight title against Jason Welborn, at Walsall Town Hall on Friday,

"I want to end 2013 with the Lonsdale Belt in a nice frame in our house plus the European title, too. That said, if I was offered Khan, Bradley or Brook straight after my next fight, I’d snap their hands off.

"I’m not calling them out - I’ve no right - but I’m 27 now and need to know exactly where I’m at. If I lost, I could still come again.

"I won my world amateur title by using my feet, using my mind, being clever, and that’s how it’s gonna be from now on. I’m working on my strengths again and, when I use my skills, hardly anyone can beat me.

"I know I can bounce for 12 rounds and when they tire, I’ll put it on ‘em. I fatigue a lot of opponents mentally. You have to concentrate very hard, all the time when you’re in with me.

"I’ve not lost to a British kid for 12 years now and I definitely won’t be losing to him. I’m technically better, harder to hit, and I’ve really put it in, in the gym. I don’t just want to win, I want to look very good. He’s my dream opponent; walks forward onto punches, but he’ll stop marching when’s he repeatedly hit.”

Would love to see him in with Fury and Price to be honest. Not interested with him and the Klitschkos. That ship has sailed. He'll KO both Price and Fury though

Think Haye in with either would be a massive event in this country. Would love to see Fury once he got tagged, be like Bambi on ice. Fury would still be talking shit when receiving the 10 count.

Haye would stop fury inside 5 rounds

If price's defense is as leaky as it was in the Skelton fight I'd say the same for him as well

There was a moment in the Skelton fight just as it first started and I thought ' oh here goes, Price is getting sparked '...  Shame Skelton has got zero inside and game and has to do all that mauling shit, because when he let his hands go Price looked like he didn't have a clue how to defend.  Head was up high against the ropes and he was getting tagged.


I think Price and Fury are turd to be honest, don't think either of them are that good.  Price looks slightly better but not by much.

I know what you mean I had 500 and was cracking my pants in the opening stages of the first round

I don't know what happened to price's jab in the Skelton fight it was non existent

Styles make fights though and if he were to fight wlad it would be a chess match rather than the full on assault Skelton tried

It may be a factor that Price had no respect for Skeltons power and fought accordingly
I think he'd perform a lot differently against Haye, he'd certainly be wary of the power

I'd like to see Hate in with Povetkin then Vitali after that
Haye needs to be fighting not just sitting around

Get the feeling Haye is only interested in money. A Povetkin fight wouldn't sell like a Price and Fury fight.

I agree -- it's a shame - I preffered him back when he wanted to fight
