Heavyweight boxer Manuel Charr has revealed that if David Haye agrees to fight him, he will donate half of his purse to peace projects in Syria.

The 28-year-old Syrian, who is based in Germany, is expected to go up against Haye in the ring in Manchester on June 29.

"I want to fight for peace and set a sign of hope for Syria," The Sun quotes Charr as saying.

"That's why I will donate half of my purse for peace projects in my home country if David Haye accepts to fight me."

Haye announced his return to boxing last week.
