Shane Cameron lands training camp with David Haye

Shane Cameron
According to reports, New Zealander cruiserweight Shane Cameron has been chosen as David Haye's sparring partner in preparation for his highly anticipated bout with Dereck Chisora on July 14th. It will be a three week training camp and Cameron will be returning just over a week before his fight with Monte Barrett on July 5th.
Haye-Chisora July 14th.

'The Hayemaker' will be funding return flights to London for Cameron and his team and will also cover other accommodation costs as well as paying the Kiwi brawler a sparring fee.

"They were looking for a sparring partner. They knew that Shane was a tough guy," explained Cameron's manager Ken Reinsfield. "It's win-win for the Haye camp and us. Our whole team is travelling together."

Cameron and his team claim that they are not going to train with Haye for the money. They believe that there is not a better person to spar with that will prepare Cameron for his next opponent Monte Barrett. Back in 2008, Haye scored a TKO victory over Barrett in the fifth round. So as well as the sparring, Haye will also be able to offer expert tips and insights on how to beat the 41-year old American journeyman.

"We're not going up there for the money. We are going for ideal preparation," said Reinsfield.

"It's spectacular sparring. You are talking about a former WBA world champion and contender who is trying to eye up Vitali Klitschko for a title shot... Haye said he would help with any advice on fighting Barrett so that's great.
