Former two-weight world champion David Haye has been charged with assault by beating at a commerical venue in Hammersmith, West London on October 30 last year. Haye, now a boxing pundit, was arrested on Thursday at Heathrow Airport on arrival.

The former boxer entered a not guilty plea when he appeared before Westminster magistrates on Friday and was bailed to reappear at the same court on September 9.

“David Haye – 41 (13.10.80) appeared in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday, June 3,” a statement from the Metropolitan Police said.

“He was arrested and charged with assault by beating after arriving on a flight at Heathrow Airport on Thursday, June 2. The charge relates to an incident at a commercial venue on Queen Caroline Street, W6, on Saturday, 30 October 2021.”

Haye retired from boxing in 2018 after back to back defeats to fierce rival Tony Bellew. The Hayemaker won both the world cruiserweight and heavyweight titles during his 16 year professional boxing career.
