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=Boxing Scene;10443356]OK, are you going to put facts in your statements? Name me one fighter that weighed 50 pounds less than either Klitschko brother their entire careers. Wlad's last fight the weight difference was 6 pounds. Rahman weighed 10 pounds…

[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…
