Dizzee Rascal Getting Boxing Lessons From David Haye

January 12, 2011
Dizzee Rascal Getting Boxing Lessons From David HayeDizzee Rascal has been getting boxing lessons from world heavyweight champion David Haye.

The British rapper struck up a friendship with Haye after the pair began going to the same London gym.

“He comes down my gym, we train together and he can fight as well,” Haye told the Daily Star.

“The guy knows his stuff, he can ’ave it, he’s fast, powerful, very heavy-handed, he gets in there and lets his hands go. I teach him some boxing and I’ve sparred with him.”

Haye also praised Rascal's music, describing him as the “pioneer” of grime in the UK.
