Booth says some info on Haye-Klitschko could be available next week

By William Mackay: Adam Booth, the trainer/manager for WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23 KO’s), says that he could have some information about a potential fight between Haye and IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO’s) next week some time.

Haye earlier this week sent out a tweet dropping hints about a fight with Wladimir on July 2nd. In an article at, Booth said “Maybe by the middle of next week things could have changed drastically.”

As of now, Haye is potentially going to fight either Ruslan Chagaev or Alexander Povetkin, his number #1 and #2 contenders. However, Haye’s May 21st date is now messed up because British promoter Frank Warren has that date with Sky Sports, meaning that Haye can’t do a pay-per-view fight on Sky if he fights on that date because Warren will already have it. There’s no way Haye will fight if his bout isn’t PPV. This leaves the strong possibility that Haye already knew that there is a good chance of him fighting Wladimir on July 2nd, because otherwise he would have been fighting on May 21st.

Haye wants to fight at least one of the Klitschkos before retiring in October, and Wladimir has been the one that Haye has been eager to fight for the past three years. Haye doesn’t Vitali Klitschko, at least not until he’s fought and beaten Wladimir. You can bet that if Haye destroys Wladimir, he’ll have no qualms about taking a huge money fight with Vitali before retiring from the ring. A fight between Vitali and Haye will be huge if Haye beats Wladimir first. It will setup a revenge angle for the Klitschkos and it will be one of the biggest heavyweight fights in many years.
