**Former WBA champion to resist the chance to fight Klitschko

David Haye is expected to confirm his retirement on Thursday at a press conference to mark his 31st birthday.

The former WBA heavyweight champion has long stated his intention to quit when he turns 31, something he re-iterated when he lost his belt to Wladimir Klitschko in July.

But the announcement is set to come in a week when speculation over Haye's future has ramped up to new levels.

Haye's career in pictures
The British Boxing Board of Control announced earlier this week that Haye had indicated he would not seek to renew his licence in December.

But Vitali Klitschko's manager Bernd Boente claimed hours later that talks were already underway for Haye to come out of 'retirement' for another fight next February.

Boente said he was 100 per cent confident of tempting Haye back into the ring, with only the financial rewards of another meeting with a Klitschko brother likely to change his mind.
