Haye-Vitali a slight possibility for March 2013 in England

David Haye Vitali KlitschkoBy Scott Gilfoid: There is a real small chance that we could be seeing a fight between WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and David Haye in March 2013 in England, says Klitschko manager Bernd Boente. It all hings on Vitali blowing away WBC contender Manuel Charr in September and then Vitali not getting elected in October in the Ukrainian parliamentary elections.

If all those things fall in place, then there’s a chance, such as it is, Vitali will face Haye in March of next year. Frankly, I wouldn’t count on it happening. Too many things can get in the way of the fight and I don’t see Vitali not getting elected. He’s only running for a parliamentary position and the chances are very high he’ll get that seat.

Boente told the “Vitali meets Manuel Charr in Septmber and then goes on the political trail. He has to win his fight and then see the outcome of the elections. Then Vitali must decide what to do if he is not elected into a certain position. There is still a chance the fight will come, but not this year. It will probably be in England on pay-per-view next year, possibly in March.”

Haye vs. Vitali PPV? No thanks. Even if it does happen, I wouldn’t want to pay for that fight. Haye is a part time fighter and Vitali looks shot to me. If they reduced the price to less than a dollar I might be interested, but I don’t want to pay for that fight. Haye already got exposed by Wladimir Klitschko, and Vitali looked horrible against Dereck Chisora recently. PPV bouts should be between guys that are on the top of their games, not fading fighters and part time guys like Haye cherry picking fights instead of battling the top contenders. Haye’s last fight was against a 2nd tier fighter Chisora.

Vitali will do his part and destroy the chunky and incredibly slow Charr in September, but it doesn’t mean anything. Vitali WILL get elected in October, and then this whole Haye-Vitali fight will be finished. Vitali will retire and Haye will have to try and coax a rematch out of Wladimir. I really don’t want to see that. Their bout last year in July was one-sided enough to tell me that Haye would never stand a chance against Wladimir even years down the road.
