Following in the footsteps of other professional sports greats the likes of Boris Becker, Neymar and Rafael Nadal, a former world heavyweight is about to join them.

37-year-old David Haye retired from fighting in June.  He had 28 wins and just 4 losses over his illustrious career in the ring.

“I’ve always been intrigued by the skill and strategy of poker, so to be able to have the opportunity to work with Grosvenor Casinos and learn from some of the best players on the world circuit was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” Haye said.

“The next 12 months will be exciting, but I am also acutely aware that they will also be extremely challenging. I’m a complete novice so it’s a huge ask, but I am looking forward to the challenge and getting my teeth into something new before taking on Goliath.”
