Inside Lines: A top British boxer on drugs? Not me, says the Hayemaker

Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Shane Mosley begin their stringent drugs-testing programme tomorrow in advance of their world-title fight on 1 May amid continuing rumours that a well-known British boxer has been taking the muscle-building human growth hormone, undetectable until recently. But the WBA heavyweight champion David Haye is among those who insist the sport in this country is clean – and so is he. "Whoever this guy is supposed to be, it's definitely not me," he tells us. "I have never taken drugs of any sort in my life and no one has approached me to do so. I am happy to be tested at any time. If it does happen, it is probably in gyms where there are body-builders who take steroids and stuff, and maybe they mix with those guys and get hooked. But I'm always in charge of the gyms I train in and no one would come in and offer me stuff. They wouldn't dare. If someone does know who this boxer is, they should tell the Board of Control and have him tested, but I believe boxing is absolutely clean in this country." Haye was speaking as he prepared for his first defence against the American John Ruiz in Manchester on 3 April, which is on Sky Box Office. This follows his slaying of the slothful Russian giant Nicolay Valuev. Haye says: "This is a fight I have to win because I don't want to be remembered as a one-hit wonder."
