Haye says he wants to knock Wladimir out | Haye says he wants to knock Wladimir out, take his belts and then give them back
Haye says he wants to knock Wladimir out: In perhaps an odd way of trying to get IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO’s) to fight him, WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23 KO’s) came out with an interview today on Sky Sports, saying he wants to fight a couple more times before retiring from the sport at the end of the year. Haye only has time enough to fight his mandatory challenger and then he hopes will be a fight against Wladimir in September or October.
Haye said “It will be me knocking him out and taking his belts and then giving them back.” Haye would then move into retirement and be finished with boxing permanently. There’s a problem with Haye’s vision. Wladimir has a fight in September against Tomasz Adamek, and he surely won’t be able to fight in that month or in October, even if he flattens Adamek in the 1st round. If Haye wants to fight Wladimir, he’s going to have to delay his retirement until 2012. If not, Haye needs to try and fight Vitali Klitschko, Wladimir’s older brother.
Vitali really wants the fight and is sticking around hoping to get a shot at Haye. That might be a fight that Haye can still get in September or October, because Vitali’s schedule is wide open after his title defense next month against Odlanier Solis on March 12th. If Haye doesn’t want that fight, he needs to forget about retiring and keep fighting into 2012. It’s worth it because of the money he’d get in a fight with Wladimir. It’s going to be huge money, but he’s going to have to work for it by staying around longer. Source Boxingnews24
