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.
Londoner Anthony Joshua, a Team GB boxer, picked up his official Olympic kit this week.
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.
One woman sparring at Miguel's Boxing Club in Brixton told London Tonight that the sport suited her lifestyle as a mum.
Heather Christian said it fitted in around other commitments and provided a good outlet for stress.
When Leanne Spencer stepped into the ring, she found she loved it so much that she quit her job in the City to become a personal trainer.
Sarah Trevett from Miguel's Boxing and Fitness Gym says they've seen a massive surge in interest from female customers:
"The old macho image of boxing has been shaken during 2012, with Nicola Adams winning the first women's boxing gold medal for Team GB in the Olympics.....Around half of the trainers on the team are women, and there are two women-focused fitness classes a week. Even when classes aren't exclusively female orientated, women are constantly active at the gym, whether involved in personal training sessions, classes or working out on the bags and the gym by themselves."
A project which uses boxing to help young Londoners avoid a life of crime and violence, is showcasing its work tonight. The project's called "Fight For Peace", and it's getting its message across with the help of two of London 20-12's Olympic gold medallists.

The coach who guided Lennox Lewis to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion has died at the age of 68. Emanuel Steward helped the Londoner beat Evander Holyfield in 1999. Steward also trained the likes of Tommy Hearns and Wladimir Klitschko.
