David Haye: Not Interested in Price or Fury Title Fight

By Luke Furman

Former champion David Haye is mentally focused on getting WBC champion Vitali Klitschko in the ring in 2013. There is a good possibility that Vitali will retire and pursue a full-time career in politics.

If Vitali decides to retire and the belt becomes vacant - and then the vacant belt was captured by either Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs) or David Price (15-0, 13KOs) in the next twelve months - Haye says there wouldn't be any interest in fighting either of them.

"No [I would not fight either of them], because they won a vacant title. I want the man. In 50 years time, I want people to look back on my record and see that I fought the current world champion. [If one of them won the vacant title] it would lose that mystique. They wouldn't be world champions. They would be titlists. I want to fight guy, the man who beat the man who beat the man," Haye said.

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;12866140]Yeah, but it was more than one publication that thought that Valuev won. And I didn't even check US publications. And let me ask you just one question. If Haye won why didn't Dirrell win when he fought the…

[QUOTE=gmc_rfc_06;12866077]I don't really think so much stock should be put into the view of one publication. I saw an American judge score Froch-Ward 115-113...that came from someone with boxing knowledge, but I didn't agree with that score at all. That…

[QUOTE=Simurgh;12866081]It's sad fact if they fight Vitali won't get any credit for beating him and people will push Haye to bum level. Then we'll start to listen about Lennox-Vitali crap again and again and again... Both are unjustified.[/QUOTE] I still…
