Haye is currently setting up his Hayemaker gym in the UAE and it is believed the payment in question was regarding the final construction of the development in Downtown Dubai.
News reports claim that the 34-year-old was questioned by Bur Dubai police after the cheque was flagged by authorities on at Dubai International Airport two weeks ago.
The UK’s Sun Newspaper quoted Haye as saying: “The cheque was presented to the bank four days before I landed. It was not due to be presented until final completion of my property, which is due in a few weeks.

“This was an administrative error which is being rectified. I explained to the police and presented documents as proof. But I totally understand these mistakes can happen.”
Haye and two of his team have now handed in their passports to police and are awaiting the conclusion of their investigation.
The delay has already stopped Haye from returning to the UK for a British Association of Mixed Martial Arts event, which he stated on his Instagram account was a result of being ‘stuck’ in Dubai.
