Sky Sports have rejected a Haye – Klitschko PPV event

David Haye Vitali KlitschkoBy Dallan O’Donnell: According to an article on, Sky Sports have rejected an offer from Bernd Boente the manager of the Klitschko brothers, for a PPV fight with former World Boxing Association (WBA) champion David Haye and current WBC champion Vitali Klitschko in June.

Sky have good reason to do so, when Haye fought Wladimir Klitschko he flopped, barely throwing a punch in Klitschko’s direction. And who can forget the Haye – Harrison PPV farce. Nothing more needs to be said on that subject. And now to the Klitschko’s, neither, at the best of times are overly interesting to watch although I do believe Vitali is the better fighter, a PPV clash with Haye makes no sense to sky.

They already have a tarnished reputation with fight fans and are losing all the big clashes to Frank Warrens channel, Box Nation. Sky only has a handful of worthwhile fighters left to watch (Kell Brook and Carl Froch) Haye won’t fight Vitali this year. May I remind you he is still officially retired and after a spat with Dereck Chisora, he may find it difficult to be licensed again. Frank Warren however expects Haye to fight Chisora, this despite the fact that Chisora was stripped of his license and banned by the BBBOFC. The latest news on Chisora is that he may try to be licensed in Russia. Warren has apparently been in contact with Haye over a possible fight to which Haye was apparently interested. Of course, he would be, an easy pay day against an over-hyped Dereck Chisora who couldn’t beat Tyson Fury? Surely it won’t be sanctioned. This fight would bring shame on British Boxing and a new low for the Heavyweight division.
