Haye Most Likely Face Toney Or Rahman Next

David "The Hayemaker" Haye is scheduled to make his his fight at heavyweight and has ruled out a lot of potential opponents except for Hasim Rahman and James "Lights Out" Toney. The official announcement for Haye's next fight will be made sometime in mid September. Here's what Dave had to say about his 2 potential match ups:

Haye On Rahman

"I think I'd knock him out. Just like the rest of the heavyweight division. Over twelve rounds, sooner or later they're going to get knocked out. They might have good spells. They might be able to take the initial onslaught, but sooner or later they'll get broken down and knocked out."

Haye On Toney

"The only problem with James Toney, is, I've looked at his record on BoxRec and he's only won one of his last six fights. He got disqualified for steroids, he drew with Hasim Rahman and lost to Samuel Peter twice. [The last fight] was a no-decision, I thought he lost the first two rounds then he won the third, then Rahman got cut. It would be an interesting fight. He's deceiving. He fights a lot better than he looks. If you look at him, you think he's just a pumped-up fat middleweight, but he's got a lot of skills. I definitely think I'd stop him late or win a big decision on points."

With the likelihood of Haye being able to knockout Rahman over Toney, I see Haye taking a fight with Rahman over Toney.
