Included in Volume 2 of Hayemaker are in-depth and exclusive interviews with comedy icon Ricky Gervais, the fastest man on Earth, Usain Bolt, grime pioneer Dizzee Rascal, Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest, as well as Jessica Ennis, heptathlon champion and the face of the 2012 London Olympics.
In addition to all that, Haye also returned to his fighting roots in the form of interviews with Joe Calzaghe, the Khan brothers, Amir and Haroon, and UFC star Michael 'The Count' Bisping.
“I drafted up a list of names at the beginning of the process and, thankfully, was able to nail down each and every one of them for an interview and feature,” said Haye. “I wanted a more diverse selection of stars for volume two, and that is why we profile famous faces from not only the sporting world, but also those of film, television and music.
“Moving the focus away from sports stars took me out of my comfort zone somewhat, but it was a challenge I looked forward to and enjoyed. In order to bring it all back into my comfort zone, I even invited some of the stars to go a few rounds with me in my boxing gym.”
Gervais, Rascal and Artest all swapped blows, of both the physical and verbal variety, with Haye during the weeks leading up to the fighter's November 13 world title defence against Audley Harrison. Special guests and sparring partners at the boxer's London gymnasium, the trio were put through their paces in hour-long training sessions and just about lived to tell the tale.
