Haye to target Klitschko brother

Recommended Posts

David Haye's bout with Vitali Klitschko has been cancelled but the Briton could still take on Klitschko's brother.

Vitali had agreed to fight on 20 June in London but the Ukrainian looks set to make a mandatory defence of his WBC heavyweight title on 31 March instead.

IBF and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko has a proposed defence against Chris Arreola in March but that has not been finalised and he could face Haye.

"It looks like it's up to Wladimir," Haye's spokesman Elliot Worsell said.

Former world cruiserweight champion Haye, 28, won his first fight as a heavyweight against Monte Barrett in November, and could line up a bout with Wladimir within the next fortnight.


I don't know if I'm the only one who thinks Haye has a much greater chance v Wlad than against Vitali


"David doesn't mind which Klitschko he fights and is quietly confident he'll now get Wladimir," Worsell said. "We'll see what happens in the next week or so."

Vitali's mandatory defence against challenger Juan Carlos Gomez had always been an issue with the Ukrainian agreeing to fight Haye despite the WBC maintaining he must grant the Cuban a shot first.


Blessing in disguise IMO.
