Aint No Stoppin' Haye
MTV News favourite David Haye beats the world champion in his own back yard
As London fighter David Haye entered the Parisian ring to McFadden & Whitehads classic Aint No Stoppin Us Now " even his biggest fan must have wondered if taking on defending champion Jean-Marc Mormeck (managed by the flamboyant Don King) in front of a hostile home crowd might have been a fight too far.
Of course The Hayemaker had different ideas, and with his seventh-round victory proved his choice of music was spot on as always.
But the boy from Bermondsey did it the hard way. After spending 17 weeks in a North Cyprus training camp to slim down to the 14.4st limit, he had to get up off the canvas in the fourth round when Mormeck caught him flush with a left hook to the temple.
DH exclusively told MTV News: I didnt eat a decent meal for 17 weeks, but its all been worth it. Ive now got both belts (WBC & WBA) and written myself into the record books with this win.
So whats he been doing since he floored the Frenchman with that devastating right hand?... Stuffing my face " making up for lost time!
Anyway, MTV News is backing the Hayemaker to make his mark on a heavy weight division that is in desperate need of character.
