David Haye is Open To Facing Alexander Povetkin

By Yuri Tarantin

Former two-division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24KOs) is open to the idea of facing top heavyweight contender, and former champion, Alexander Povetkin (27-1, 19KOs).

Haye has been inactive since a 2012 TKO of Dereck Chisora. Two scheduled dates against Tyson Fury were called off by Haye. Povetkin returns in late May to score a knockout over Manuel Charr in seven rounds.

The British boxer was on the shelf for a several months after undergoing shoulder surgery. He now claims to be fully recovered and may return to the ring at the end of the year.

"With my shoulder it's all right, I feel great and I know that everyone is waiting for my return to the ring. I have resumed training, and generally speaking I am in pretty good shape," said Haye. "I'm looking for the opportunity [to fight this year], but I don't know with whom or in what part of the world the fight will take place."

"Alexander Povetkin is undeniably one of the best boxers in the world, he is a great fighter and also competing in my weight class. In principle it would be nice if I had a fight with him, but it's still too early to talk about it."

[QUOTE=Elroy1;14739377]Well we can finally agree on something there. I don't think Pov in on WK's level either and I too think WK could have bashed him more thoroughly without the clinching. I actually watched that last night again to see…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;14739373]I like Povetkin. I really do. He has a lot of heart and shows somewhat good skills from time to time. Do I think he's on Wlad's level? Hell no. And I never thought it would be a competitive fight.…

[QUOTE=Elroy1;14739365]I didn't know, I'm just building a character profile LOL You just seem like one of those pessimistic old timers sons who is blind to talent when it's staring them in the face. I think you'd appreciate what your looking…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;14739266]How would you know you damn troll who claim you're not an alt? I said before the Povetkin fight that he was no good and Wlad would smash him up. I didn't know that Wlad would fight scared though.[/QUOTE] I…
