The news that broke yesterday confirming that Shane McGuigan would not be training David Haye when Haye makes his comeback to the ring.

Apparently, according to the press release, the duo had differing opinions as to which direction Haye?s career should go in.

Today, the Sun on Sunday is suggesting that following the defeat inflicted by Tony Bellew, in the grudge fight, coupled with the fact that Haye suffered a badly torn Achilles, Shane McGuigan was of the opinion that Haye should retire from the sport.

Haye, naturally, wasn?t of the same opinion and wants to box on, convinced he can claim another heavyweight title to match the WBA one he once held.

But is Shane McGuigan right, is the time ripe for Haye to hang his gloves up?

Some might say that it is five years since Haye fought a serious heavyweight contender when, in five rounds, he proved he was the far better fighter when matched against Dereck Chisora at the Boleyn Ground the former home of West Ham United Football Club.

Since then Haye, coming back to the ring after a lay-off of three and a half years, brushed aside Mark de Mori and Arnold Gjergjaj before losing to a pumped-up cruiserweight in Tony Bellew.

Thirty-seven, at his next birthday, Haye faces a long trek to get a world title shot and you could question whether Haye would be better off, as Shane McGuigan believes calling it a day.
