David Haye, a former world heavyweight boxing champion, has signed on with the BAMMA team, the promotion announced recently.
Haye will be part of the BAMMA 20 event which takes place April 25 and airs on Spike TV throughout Europe.
“We’re delighted to have ‘The Hayemaker’ on board,” BAMMA CEO David Green said. “He is one of the biggest and best known names in the combat sport world, and having David as part of the team guarantees even more entertainment and excitement for BAMMA fans.”
Haye has fought the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Nikolai Valuev and Dereck Chisora, and will be able to provide viewers with insight into what it takes to compete in combat sports. He retired in 2012 with a record of 26-2 with 24 knockout wins to his credit.
“I’ve been a fan of martial arts since I could walk, as my father was a Karate instructor,” Haye said. “I’ve followed the growth of MMA since Royce Gracie broke into the scene. It’s a pleasure to be part of the growth of BAMMA and MMA, as it’s a fantastic sport. I hope my years of fight experience at the highest level translates into solid commentary for these amazing MMA events.”
