Former two division world champion David Haye is pretty excited about the upcoming heavyweight clash between WBC champion Bermane Stiverne and mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder.

Haye, who plans to return to the ring in the fall, has no interest in watching any fights involving WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko. He feels Klitschko faces opponents who have absolutely no chance of victory.

The British boxer has used Wilder in the past as a sparring partner. 31 opponents have come and Wilder knocked all of them out. Stiverne is very much his biggest test to date. Haye sees the showdown as a 50-50 fight.

“Stiverne versus Wilder is an exciting fight. Both are good fighters and are big punchers and I think it’s about time that we got some interesting 50-50 fights for the heavyweight title. Watching Wladimir hold and lever his way to victory against guys who are 200-1 underdogs; people don’t really want to tune in for that. People are interested in Stiverne even though they never heard of him before," Haye told Sport 360.

“He’s a heavyweight who lets his hands go, but he’s vulnerable, so putting these guys together makes it exciting and I’d like to get into the mix sooner rather than later and have some fun fights for the fans. Wilder has his sights solely locked on winning the title and fingers crossed he does do that because he’s an exciting guy, he’s a nice guy. I’ve brought him over to the UK to help me prepare for fights as my sparring partner and he did a great job. He gave me great rounds.

“He has big, exciting punches and has won all his fights by knockout. He’s at the point of competing for a world title. I’m not there yet and I have to get myself into position. It took him 31 fights to get into position for that title and it would take me at least two or three fights to get into that. So I plan to take it one step and fight at a time.”
