Whenever there are celebrity reality television shows, such as Celebrity Big Brother and I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! there are usually a bunch of people trying to revive their faltering careers. However, this year, I’m A Celeb has managed to bag a real star.
British boxer David Haye is still currently considered one of the best heavyweight boxers in the world. So what has he got to gain from doing the reality television series? Surely he cannot just be doing it for the money, as he will have made millions from boxing and we can’t imagine him being paid more than £100k for I’m A Celeb.
David Haye could make a few million from having a world title fight, so he does not need the cash that I’m A Celeb offers. Maybe David is just trying to use the show as a platform to call out some possible future opponents. After all, David Haye does talk a good game, even if he doesn’t always deliver.
The likelihood is that David Haye will call out at least two opponents while in the jungle and he will spend most of his time bad mouthing fellow boxers. His main targets will be the Klitschko brothers but he may even have a dig at the likes of Tyson Fury and David Price.
When it all comes down to it, the main reason that David Haye has joined I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! is because he is an egomaniac. David loves being the centre of attention and loves people talking about him and what better way to do that than eating Kangaroo testicles in a jungle.
