Join My Campaign to Get Muhammad Ali's Greatness Inside and Outside the Ring Recognised With an Honourary Knighthood

David Haye | Posted 02.03.2016 | UK Sport
David Haye

It may not surprise you to know that Muhammad Ali was a huge influence on my career. I used to watch every Ali fight and documentary I could lay my hands on. Not only was he a phenomenal boxer, he is a moral person who has always stood up for what he believes in. Last week I launched a campaign for the great man to receive an Honorary Knighthood and the reception to the idea has been incredible. The petition is aiming for 25,000 signatures and in less than a week we've managed to get over 18,000. I'm very confident that soon we'll be able to reach the 100,000 that it requires to be discussed in Parliament.

Whilst on my recent travels in Cuba I utilised the opportunity to explore the culture and investigate some of their fundamental differences. After all what makes me tick, is knowing what makes people tick. In doing this we can readily learn what principles work for a nation and of course those which may be better discarded.

Jacqui Wright

Tyson Fury's nomination for BBC Sports Personality of The Year has caused a media frenzy over the decision to nominate a man with such outdated views on gays, women and abortion, and rightly so. As much as it should be all about the sporting achievement, it has to be said that whoever wins this accolade will have an enormous influence over any young people who may have chosen to follow in their footsteps, whether they like it or not.

Is there not more to talk about? Look, obviously what he said was moronic and derogatory. But he's a boxer, for God's sake. The man is paid to get into fights. Should we have expected him, having won his title, to deliver an ode on the importance of societal peace and harmony?
