Former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion David Haye came out of retirement and scored a points win over Joe Fournier before calling out ‘big fat dosser’ Tyson Fury.
The Hayemaker, 40, took on Fournier on the undercard of the bout between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
It had been more than three years since Haye lost to Tony Bellew at the O2 Arena in London where he lost by TKO in round five.

In his post-fight interview, Haye said: ‘There’s one fighter I’d come back to professional boxing for and that’s Tyson Fury.
‘Tyson Fury, that big fast dosser, I know his kryptonite, I know what he can’t handle.
‘He’s a dosser, it’s his word, he’s a dosser. And I’m his kryptonite. I know that he knows it, his dad knows it, his uncle knows it.

‘He wants a fight? The Hayemaker will come for you. When Tyson Fury really wants a challenge… the fans want to see it, the fans want to see Tyson Fury facing someone who can knock him out.’
Haye was due to fight Fury in 2013 but injuries forced him to pull out twice, with the Gypsy King going on to become a double world champion.
The former heavyweight champion also claimed he didn’t go for the knockout against Fourier because he didn’t want to ‘scare’ Fury away from a fight.
‘I didn’t want to scare him away. Of course, I did. If I had let my right hand go, he wouldn’t have taken the fight.

‘I know he thinks I’m 40-year’s-old, he thinks I’m finished, I’ve been out the ring, I’ve only had one fight against Joe Fournier.
‘He thinks it will be an easy fight and he’s wrong.’
The 40-year-old took another swipe at Fury and claimed he was avoiding an undisputed heavyweight fight with Anthony Joshua.
He said: ‘I know he’s avoiding Anthony Joshua, I know he’s trying to put trying to put him on the back burner, he doesn’t want that work.
‘I’ll give it to him, I’ll give him that work. He wants to fight, the Hayemaker will come for you.’
