David Haye reveals that global popstar Justin Bieber has some "really good" skills in the boxing ring.

British boxer David Haye has revealed that global popstar Justin Bieber has impressive form in the ring.

The heavyweight fighter, whose future in the sport remains unclear, has sparred with a number of famous figures in the gym, including singer Rita Ora and comedy actor Ricky Gervais.

"Justin Bieber believe it or not was really good," Haye told BT Sport's The Clare Balding Show. "I know it is the last person you think who would be any good at boxing but he was really good. I wasn't expecting him to be that good.

"He's Justin Bieber you think he is just a little singer but his timing was really good and he could punch hard. I was shocked.

"Ricky Gervais also is amazing. He could actually have a boxing match. I am 100% serious, Ricky Gervais is good enough to have a boxing match."

Bieber's love for boxing has been evident on numerous occasions when he has supported undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr.
