Haye seems receptive to fighting Wladimir in Las Vegas
By Eric Thomas: WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23 KO’s) could be facing IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO’s) in April in Las Vegas, Nevada. Haye sounds very confident that he’ll be facing Wladimir next, and it could wind up in Las Vegas rather than Germany or the UK.
In an article at espn.co.uk, Haye said “Fingers crossed, we’ll know something pretty soon. Form our side, we’re raring to go. I’m positive this fight will happen. As I’ve said before, I will retire next year, so this fight has to happen. It’s a fight the world wants. It’s the only fight the Klitschkos can have to cement their legacy. Where? Wherever it makes the most money. Watching Amir [Khan] here [in Vegas] definitely gave ma real buzz. I want some of this. I’d love to come out here and fight in a great arena and give everyone value for money. The talks have been very positive. I’m confident it’s going to happen.”
This is great news for boxing fans, because they’ve been waiting for Haye to fight one of the Klitschkos for two years now and have been let down with Haye’s inability to get in the ring with one of the brothers. What would be even better is if Haye can beat Wladimir and then get a fight with Vitali Klitschko in a revenge bout for Klitschko. It would be a huge fight, and much bigger than Wladimir vs. Haye. It’s a possibility because Haye looked great in handling the 6’6″ Audley Harrison recently. Haye could very well be too fast and too powerful for Wladimir in close and he could take him out quickly in April.
