Boxing: David Haye pulls out of comeback fight with Manuel Charr

The former heavyweight champion suffers a hand injury in training

David Haye has been forced to pull out of his heavyweight bout with Manuel Charr next month after suffering a hand injury in training.

Haye was set to fight for the first time since stopping fellow Briton Dereck Chisora inside five rounds in their controversial bout at Upton Park last July against former world title challenger Charr at the Manchester Arena on June 29.

But after injuring his left hand on Sunday evening, the 32-year-old today announced via a press release that the contest has been postponed and it is not yet clear whether the bout will be re-arranged.
