Sports Personality of the Year 2010: David Haye

David Haye

David Haye's 2010

Sports Personality of the Year
Venue: Birmingham LG Arena Date: Sunday, 19 December Time: 1900 GMT Coverage: Live on BBC One, BBC Radio 5 Live & BBC Sport website.

We will be dedicating a day to one of the top 10 contenders from 6-17 December (in alphabetical order).


The year 2010 proved to be another knockout year for 'The Hayemaker', with two successful defences of his world heavyweight title.

The WBA champion stopped American John Ruiz in April, further proving his credentials as a hard-hitting heavyweight champion.

Haye's attention then turned to an all-British showdown with Audley Harrison in November.

In one of the most hyped bouts in years, Haye proved a class above his opponent, stopping Harrison in the third round after a blistering barrage of punches.

The 30-year-old now has his sights set on the Klitschko brothers as he bids to unify the heavyweight division before his self-imposed retirement deadline of October next year.

Former boxing champion of the world Lennox Lewis was the last heavyweight boxer to lift the Sports Personality of the Year trophy in 1999 and Londoner Haye will have the opportunity to follow in his hero's footsteps in Birmingham.
