Swindon trainer Paddy Fitzpatrick discusses David Haye’s comeback and the current heavyweight division in his weekly chat with Your Sport Swindon.

Fitzpatrick believes the jury is still out on Haye following his return to action in a first round knockout against Mark de Mori although he does believe The Hayemaker would beat Anthony Joshua if the fight happened today.

Haye’s fight which was screened on Dave and attracted the channel’s second-ever highest viewing figures of around four million, a statistic that impressed Fitzpatrick and he says proves Haye still has pulling power inside the ring.

Fitzpatrick though remains confident that newly-crowned world champion Tyson Fury will dominate the heavyweight division in the near future and backed the Manchester boxer to knock out Wladimir Klitschko when they have their contracted rematch.

The Swindon trainer is also a big fan of Joshua although he believes there is absolutely no need to rush his career and advised the 2o12 Olympic World Champion to bide his time en route to heavyweight stardom.
