Former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion David Haye came out of retirement and scored a win over Joe Fournier before calling out ‘big fat dosser’ Tyson Fury.
The Hayemaker, 40, took on Fournier on the undercard of the fight between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
It had been over three years since Haye lost to Tony Bellew at the O2 Arena in London, where he lost by TKO in round five.

In his post-fight interview, Haye said: “There is one fighter that I would return to professional boxing for and that is Tyson Fury.
‘Tyson Fury, that big fast dosser, I know his kryptonite, I know what he can’t handle.
‘He is a dosser, it is his word, he is a dosser. And I am his kryptonite. I know he knows, his father knows, his uncle knows.

‘He wants a fight? The Hayemaker is coming for you. If Tyson Fury really wants a challenge… the fans want to see it, the fans want Tyson Fury to face someone who can knock him out.”
Haye was due to fight Fury in 2013, but injuries forced him to withdraw twice, with the Gypsy King going to become a double world champion.
The former heavyweight champion also claimed he wasn’t going for the knockout against Fourier because he didn’t want to ‘scare’ Fury away from a fight.
‘I didn’t want to scare him. Of course I did. If I had let go of my right hand, he wouldn’t have fought.

“I know he thinks I’m 40 years old, he thinks I’m done, I’ve been out of the ring, I’ve only fought Joe Fournier once.
“He thinks it’s going to be an easy fight and he’s wrong.”
The 40-year-old took another swipe at Fury, claiming he avoided an undisputed heavyweight fight with Anthony Joshua.
He said: ‘I know he’s avoiding Anthony Joshua, I know he’s trying to put him on the back burner, he doesn’t want that job.
‘I’ll give it to him, I’ll give him that work. He wants to fight, the Haymaker is coming for you.’
