Heavyweight David Haye insists that he has no intention of facing another British fighter when he returns to the ring later this year.

Former world heavyweight champion David Haye has revealed that he has no intention of fighting either Tyson Fury or David Price.

Haye is scheduled to return to the ring at Manchester Arena on June 29, but while his opponent won't be named until the middle of April, the former WBA title holder has dismissed any possibility of a domestic fight.

The 32-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I'm done with the domestic scene. Price, Fury and Chisora - again - do not interest me."

"[Fury] has been very vocal from the start. He kind of reminds me of myself a little bit when after I had won the world cruiserweight championship I was like: 'I am going to do this and come after you'.

"But you need the villains in boxing and I know a lot of people would want to see him get knocked out, but I will avoid that domestic round-robin."

Trainer Adam Booth revealed last month that he is in talks with five potential opponents for Haye.
