“I’ve always loved films,” he said. “I believe I will be able to transcend from the sporting background into being a successful actor.”
Asked if he’s had any offers already he replied, “Loads, loads, loads. I want to be in The Expendables 2, so fingers crossed.”
But for now, the Hayemaker has his sights set on beating Wladimir Klitschko and then his brother Vitali before concentrating on retirement plans.
“There are loads of things but I don’t want to travel too far down that road, I want to focus on this next fight… I don’t want to think about what plan I’m going to bow out on and retire and then get knocked out and no-one is interested in me.”
“So I need to focus on these last few months.”
On the plus side, if Haye does lose the next fight, The Expendables could well be the right film for him.
