Former WBA champion David Haye is returning to the boxing ring as he plots a route to another world title fight.
The 32-year-old British heavyweight will fight an as-yet-undetermined opponent on June 29 in Manchester, with another bout scheduled before the end of the year.
Haye was last in the ring in July when he beat British rival Dereck Chisora, with his belief at the time that the success would lead to a fight with Vitali Klitschko for the WBC belt.
That did not transpire but Haye is ready to go in search of the mandatory challenger tag by beating an opponent in June.
Haye's trainer, Adam Booth, says talks are ongoing for the June bout with five fighters. The Klitschko brothers, Vitali and Wladimir, are not among the five.
