David Haye Talks Vitali in 2013, British License, More
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Heavyweight contender David 'The Hayemaker' Haye today confirmed he has handed back his Luxembourg boxing license, but will still try to force a fight with WBC world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in 2013.

I'd like to thank the Luxembourg Boxing Federation for licensing me ahead of my July bout with Dereck Chisora in London, but I no longer require that license, said Haye, the former WBA world heavyweight champion.

It's been well-publicised already, but the reason I applied for a license from the Luxembourg Boxing Federation was because my opponent, Dereck Chisora, had seen his British license withdrawn. The only way we were able to deliver the fight the public wanted, when they wanted it, was to both apply for foreign licenses, as arranged by Chisora's promoter.

In an ideal world, though, I'd now like to box on with a British license. I'm a British boxer, I have never had any issues with the board and, should a fight with Vitali Klitschko happen, I'd be keen to have the British Boxing Board of Control in my corner, simply because they are so experienced and are the best at what they do.

Haye watched Vitali Klitschko defeat challenger Manuel Charr earlier this month and remains confident of getting his shot, despite the champion's hints of impending retirement and a move into politics.

If I was Vitali Klitschko, I wouldn't want to go out on a win like that, said Haye. Even in a predictably one-sided affair he didn't look impressive and the the finish was anticlimactic to say the least. The win itself also means very little, as Manuel Charr proved to be nothing more than an unworthy challenger in a half-empty arena.

My aim is to get Vitali in a ring next year, after his election campaign has failed, and bring his WBC world title back to Britain. This is the only fight that interests me at heavyweight, and the WBC world heavyweight title is the one belt I'm desperate to win before I retire for good. I won the WBC world cruiserweight title in 2007, and have won many other world titles since, but lifting the green WBC belt at heavyweight would be an extremely proud moment for me.

[QUOTE=Daa]Yes maybe but Haye made 6 fights the last 4 years, Vitali is 10 y older and made 10 fights at the same time. Haye doesn't want to play the game, developp a carreer & fight contenders in order to become clearly the top contender. He just make trash talk & cash out ppv 's fights against...

[QUOTE=joe strong]yes "for you anyway" but for many others he has had a solid career. i'm not a haye fan but he has accomplished quite a bit in the sport. just because he doesn't want to take punches until he is 40 doesn't mean he hasn't had a good career. he is not hall of fame worthy but he has...

[QUOTE=SaintGeorge]End of the day, Haye's a good fighter, end of story. He'll hammer Vitali into retirement, without a doubt and then possibly another fight with Wlad 2 years on. Can he beat Wlad with different tactics? He has a slim chance. The next time Wlad and Haye fight (which I'm...

[QUOTE=Own3d]Boente - "The brawl tonight calls for a box-off between Haye and Chisora, and the winner fights one of the Klitschkos. would make a lot of money in the UK."[/QUOTE] Boente did say something about a box off but I didn't hear him say what you just quoted him saying in that video. ...
