David Haye: No Rematch Clause, I'm a Free Agent

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23 KOs), there is no rematch clause in place for his upcoming clash with IBO/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs). The bout will happen on July 2 in Hamburg, Germany. If he wins, Haye says there is nothing that would bind him to a rematch with Wladimir or a mandatory fight with older brother and WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KOs).

"We got the deal that we wanted," Haye said to Kevin Mitchell of The Guardian, "which was a straight 50-50 revenue split, and this is a one-fight deal. I win this fight, and I'm a free agent, free to fight who I want, where I want. That's how most fights should be made anyway, particularly when two people are bringing a lot into the pot. No way could he expect to have all these rematch clauses, restrictions that his usual contracts stipulate."

[QUOTE=withoutthee666;10443307]I have no problem with the Klitschkos fighting in a division that is filled with other 6'7 men that are 250 pounds of muscle. Why do you get credit in the HW division for being able to beat men 50…
