David Haye is expected to retire from boxing for good when he celebrates his birthday on Thursday, several sports news sites reported on Tuesday, October 11, 2011.

According to reports, Haye is ready to fulfill his promise to retire from boxing at the age of 31 after informing the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBC) that he did not want to renew his licencse.

“I received an email on Monday advising me Haye would not be carrying on,” BBBC secretary Robert Smith reportedly said. “The board will discuss it on Wednesday but there is no way we could go against his wish not to renew his boxing licence. Without it, he can’t fight.”

Haye, a former world heavyweight boxing champion, always said that he would not fight on past the age of 30. His last fight was against Wladimir Klitschko last July when he lost his WBA world title in Hamburg, Germany.
