It's fair to say this London boxer really loves his home cioty.
The success of Nicola Adams in the London 2012 Olympics has been credited with getting more women into the ring.
Haye's trainer Adam Booth says that he is in "frightening shape" ahead of his match against Dereck Chisora at Upton Park on Saturday.
The boxer from Bermondsey tweeted this picture of him in a hospital bed last night with the message, 'I am truly gutted for my loyal fans'.
Haye's promoters say he had five hours of surgery in Germany last Thursday to reconstruct his right shoulder and in a statement say:
'[Haye] has since been told to seriously consider ending his glittering 11-year professional boxing career.
The operation was to the right subscapularis and bicep tendon attachments, both of which were ruptured.'
Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis says he would be happy to make a return to the ring to face IBF, WBA and WBO titlist Wladimir Klitschko. But he would only do it for $100 million - the biggest prize in boxing history.
London-born Lewis last fought professionally over a decade ago, but told the Daily Mail he would be ready to step back into the ring with only six months of training, on the condition he takes with him the huge price tag.
Lennox Lewis said: "I have told them I can be ready in six months and I am in provisional training. I said at the time that it will take $50m to get me out of my pyjamas but now I have to consider the value of my legacy of having retired as undisputed champion. That will cost them $100m."
Lewis had always maintained he had no interest in making a comeback since retiring after beating Klitschko's older brother Vitali in June 2003 in controversial circumstances, retaining his WBC title when the fight was stopped after the sixth round in Los Angeles.
Boxer Anthony Joshua was one of London's true stars of the Olympics. The Watford-born heavyweight started the Games a novice on the international scene- and finished as a gold medallist.
Now he's going professional, and this weekend he'll make his debut at the O2 Arena. He told Rags Martel that he hopes his Olympic journey has prepared him for this next step in his career. This report contains flashing images.
Former world heavyweight champion David Haye has had to postpone a Sept. 28 bout with fellow Briton Tyson Fury in Manchester after suffering a cut over his left eyebrow in training.
Londoner Haye was sparring with Croatian Filip Hrgovic on Friday when he suffered the wound that needed six stitches.
Promoters Hayemaker Boxing said in a statement that the stitches would have to remain in place for between five and seven days. No date was set for any rescheduled fight.
"Even when everything seems to be right on track, sometimes life throws you a curveball," said the 32-year-old Haye. "I will somehow have to try and make the best of this horrible situation. But, right now, I'm in bits about what has happened."
Haye's previous planned fight, against Germany's Manuel Charr, was cancelled in June when the Briton suffered a hand injury. He has not fought since July 2012, when he beat Dereck Chisora.
The former WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye has defended Audley Harrison after the 2000 Olympic champion announced his retirement from boxing. Harrison faced heavy criticism after being easily beaten by Haye when they fought for the world title in 2010.
But Haye said Harrison had achieved a lot in his career.

"I know he didn't lace a pair of gloves on until he was 18 or 19, I know he had a bit of a rough upbringing. So I'm sure if someone had said to him then that he would achieve all this - being a professional, European champion, world title challenger, Olympic champion - I'm sure he would have snatched that out of your hand and said 'thank you very much, I'll have that'.
"I'm sure you can look back through thousands of British boxers and boxers from around the world who haven't achieved a tenth of what Audley has done."
Former world featherweight champion Barry McGuigan pays tribute to Michael Norgrove.
Very sad to hear of Michael Norgrove's passing RIP. My deepest sympathies to his family.
A spokesperson for Repton Boxing Club in east London, where the Zambian-born athlete had previously trained, described him as a "powerful boxer" and "crowd pleaser" who always achieved an "all action humdinger of a bout" even in his amateur days.
The club said: "We are saddened to hear that Ex Repton Boxer Michael Norgrove has died nine days after collapsing in the ring at The Blackfriars Venue London, doing what he loved."
His promoter Steve Goodwin tweeted: "It's so unbelievable what has happened to this young man."
Tributes have been paid to a "powerful" boxer from London who died on Saturday, nine days after developing a blood clot on his brain.
Michael Norgrove, a former amateur and white collar fighter from Woodford Green, is the first boxer to die following a bout in a British ring since 1995.
The 31-year-old died in hospital on Saturday after his fight against Tom Bowen at The Ring in Blackfriars, London was called off by referee Jeff Hinds.
He stopped the contest early in the fifth of the scheduled six rounds after growing concerned by the light-middleweight's behaviour.
Norgrove subsequently collapsed and was immediately taken to hospital.
The Finchley heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora has been given his British boxing licence back ahead of his next fight in April, according to his promoter Frank Warren.
Chisora was stripped of his licence last year by the British Boxing Board of Control after he brawled with his rival David Haye at a press conference. However, he then fought Haye in the ring at Upton Park after being granted a licence by the Luxembourg authorities.
London boxer Dereck Chisora will fight at Wembley Arena in March if he gets his British boxing licence back. The Finchley heavyweight was stripped of his licence by the British Boxing Board of Control after brawling with David Haye at a press conference in February last year.
He has now reapplied for a licence from the board and if he gets it, he will take on an unnamed opponent at the 'Rule Britannia' show on March 16th.
