David Haye on 2013 Goal: To Knock Vitali Klitschko Out!

By Luke Furman

Former two division world champion David Haye is still angling to secure a match with WBC heavyyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Haye, who lost twelve round decision to younger brother Wladimir last July, retured earlier this year with an impressive knockout victory of Dereck Chisora. Vitali is still weighing his options. He may retire from boxing and pursue a full-time career in politics in Ukraine. Vitali, 41-years-old, doesn't plan to make a decision on his career until early 2013.

"It's no great secret that I want to knock out Vitali Klitschko in 2013," Haye told The Evening Standard. "The contract for the fight has been agreed and is there ready to sign. Were it simply up to me, I'd be training to fight right now.

"Nobody seems to know if Vitali wants to set foot again in the ring, let alone face somebody as dangerous as me. What I do know is that by this time next year I will either be a retired former world heavyweight champ or the new world heavyweight champ."

Wlad did a lot of talking before the Haye fight too that he didn't back up either. Seems Haye gets crucified for being a better promoter of a fight and himself. I feel sorry for anyone who thought these two…

[QUOTE=Superflo777;12851818]Why are you arguing "Wlad couldn't knock Haye out" and not "Haye couldn't knock Wlad out" ? It's because Wlad was the one who was in control. He was the superior man in the ring.[/QUOTE]Wlad - "He will be my…

[QUOTE=RapidFire26;12850339]Sorry but Haye just sucked[/QUOTE] Pretty much, he didn't fight to win, he fought not to get KO'd then blamed his toe. That's not what British fighters do, it's embarrassing. Leave it all in the ring or don't get in…
