David Haye spars with Rita Ora

NEW SPARRING PARTNER: David Haye and Rita Ora

DAVID HAYE decided to freshen up his training routine by inviting a rather more lightweight sparring partner to trade blows with him – singer Rita Ora.

Known better for hitting the right notes than punching prowess, the 22-year-old popstar visited Haye’s London gym yesterday and posted pictures and footage of the encounter online.

Haye, who faces a heavyweight clash with Tyson Fury on September 28 in Manchester, tweeted: “Great fun today at the Hayemaker Gym training with the very fit & lovely @RitaOra.”

The 32-year-old has not been in competitive action since knocking out Derek Chisora in July 2012.

The Fury fight represents his first match in over a year, and Haye’s opponent is confident he can end his career.

Fury, 24, told the Daily Star: “After I have sorted him out in the ring, there will be nowhere left for him to go - he will be finished.

“This could well be Haye's last fight, believe me. But it will be one of many more for Tyson Fury as I head for the world title.”
