David Haye Rips Klitschkos, Arreola: Retirement Still On

By Mark Vester

WBA heavyweight champion David Haye had plenty to say when he recently went face to face with IBO/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko in New York City to announce their upcoming fight on July 2 in Hamburg, Germany. 

Haye said he was hoping to become a much bigger star in the United States but the lack of heavyweights coming up was a big problem.

“I was anticipating some young hungry Americans would be on the horizon. But the only hungry American you’ve got is Chris Arreola and he’s hungry in the kitchen and not the ring. Unfortunately, that’s the state of American heavyweight boxing,” Haye told the New York Post.

Contrary to some of his recent comments, Haye said that he still plans to retire in October, when he turns 31-years-old.

“I’ve set that date from when I was young and I always try to stick to my goals,” he said. “You have timelines and if you achieve what you want to achieve in those timelines why not stick to your goals?”

He wants complete one final task - to rid boxing of the Klitschko brothers, who the British fighter is blaming for boxing's decline.

"You and your brother have killed boxing," Haye told Wladimir. "I'm here to save it."
