Haye still hoping for Vitali fight
By William Mackay: Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye is still very much interested in facing WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in a mega fight in 2012, but right now it’s not looking good for Haye due to the post-fight brawl with Dereck Chisora he as involved with after the Vitali-Chisora fight last month. The WBC reportedly won’t sanction a fight between Haye and Vitali, and that could be the kiss of death for the fight unless the WBC changes it’s mind.
In addition to the WBC being a possible roadblock for the fight, Haye doesn’t have a boxing license right now after retiring. When he goes to get his license back from the British Boxing Board of Control there’s a good chance that Haye will be rejected. He’d be forced to go out of the country to get a boxing license.
Haye told Sky Sports News “I said before my retirement I will only come out of retirement to fight Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko. Vitali made a lot of noise the last couple of months saying he wants to fight me but he’s gone quiet of late so maybe he doesn’t want to do it. If he doesn’t then fair enough but if he does I’ll be ready. Their people know I’m good to fight at the drop of the hat.”
Vitali doesn’t have very many good options available to him besides Haye if he wants to get a good payday. He says he wants to KO Haye to improve upon the performance that his brother Wladimir made against him, but there’s a lot of things that are currently in the way of the fight taking place.
