David Haye: Reportedly planning to work his way into a mandatory position
David Haye is reported to be planning a return to the ring for the first time in a year on July 6.
Rumours had been circulating that Haye was looking to become a legitimate challenger to the world heavyweight titles after failing to secure a date with WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.
The 32-year-old has had just one fight since his woeful attempt to beat Wladimir Klitschko in the summer of 2011, beating Dereck Chisora at Upton Park last July.
Haye fought under a Luxembourg licence on that occasion having 'retired' following the Klitschko loss.
However, the Mail Online say the British board has agreed to re-licence the Londoner pending the usual medical tests.
Haye is still highly ranked by the sanctioning bodies but must work his way into a mandatory position after talks with both Klitschkos reached a stalemate.
Elder brother Vitali now appears set to retire and focus on a political career, while Wladimir continues to knock out all those put before him.
His next defence is against another cherry-picked opponent in Italy's Francesco Pianeta on May 4.
