David Haye Goliath poker documentary set for premiere

David Haye has swapped the boxing ring for a poker table in a bid to challenge the world's best, with a feature-length documentary being released this weekend.

Haye has partnered with Grosvenor Poker for the documentary and admits he did not know what he was letting himself in for.

The former heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion is the star of David Versus Goliath on Amazon Prime after teaming up with Grosvenor in 2018 to learn the basics of poker, and going on to develop a passion for the game.

The documentary sees Haye, who is supported by several professional players from Team Grosvenor, look to become a competitive poker player in Grosvenor’s Goliath tournament.

 “Without a doubt, my success in the ring helped when taking on this challenge,” the 39-year-old said recently.

“As a fighter, I had to have a tunnel vision approach. It was always – will this help me become heavyweight champion of the world? – if the answer was yes, it would happen, if not I would pass. It was the same ahead of Goliath.”

Speaking to the Press Association prior to its launch, Haye said: "They said to me, if they gave me a year of training with the best poker players in the world, the best coaches in the world, how well do I believe I could do?

"With my confidence in my own abilities, I thought I'd win it easily. Genuinely. I thought if I was doing it for a year, figuring it all out, understanding it, as long as I've got the best teachers I'd win it.

"But it soon became apparent poker is not something you can pick up in five minutes."

The documentary is available to stream or download it via Amazon Prime and you can watch the trailer by clicking on the video at the top of this page.
