DAVID HAYE has launched a new boxing promotions company.
The Bermondsey fighter’s Haye Promotions and Richard Schaefer’s Ringstar will be known as Haymaker Ringstar, with the pair hoping to muscle in on the UK boxing promotion terrain and negotiate a deal with a major TV broadcaster.
Schaefer is the former chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions, the Oscar De La Hoya-formed company based in Los Angeles. Haye said: “Together, we are creating a new kind of promotions entity. Throughout the history of boxing, the fighter has worked for the promoter, the core values of Hayemaker Ringstar will turn this on its head.
We will work for the fighter. “This shift will impact an incredible sport in a hugely positive way. Hayemaker Ringstar will be renowned for discovering amazing young talent, nurturing, empowering, and helping them to become global stars.” Haye fights for the first time since May 2016 when he takes on Tony Bellew at London’s O2 Arena on March 4.
