David Haye is booked to fight Manuel Charr at the MEN Arena on June 29, with the fight shown on Sky Sports following a promotion deal with Matchroom Boxing.

Heavyweight contender Manuel Charr has been confirmed as the opponent for David Haye's comeback fight at the MEN Arena on June 29.

Haye's return was announced last month but up until today the identity of his adversary was unknown.

Germany-based Charr will serve as the Hayemaker's first test of 2013, with the fight to be shown on Sky Sports after Matchroom Boxing announced a long-term promotion deal with the former two-weight world champion.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn used Twitter to break the news this evening, tweeting: "It gives me unbelievable pleasure to announce we have agreed a long term promotional deal with @mrdavidhaye @boxingbooth and Hayemaker.

"First up @mrdavidhaye will face Manuel Charr live and exclusive on @SkySports 1 on June 29th from MEN Arena. Full press conference to follow on Wednesday."

Charr has lost just once in his professional career, a stoppage defeat to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko.
