Frank Warren on David Haye's Return, Margarito, More

IT DIDN'T take long for the Klitschkos to try and goad David Haye out of retirement.

This time Vitali may face the Brit after younger brother Wladimir beat him on points when Haye put a poor performance down to an injured little toe.

Such is the state of the heavyweight division that the only fight with a slight bit of interest is a Haye-Vitali match-up.

Wladimir takes on Jean Marc Mormeck next month in Germany with the WBA Super, IBF and WBO titles on the line. Mormeck has as much chance as Audley did of winning Strictly!

Wladimir taunted Haye: "He was a chicken for 12 rounds. If he has guts and ego, which got hammered against me, he'll be back.

"Vitali hits a lot harder than me and I am pretty sure Vitali can knock him out."

A date of March 3 in Dusseldorf is mooted but the real reason Haye is in the mix depends on what TV revenue he will bring.

Sky Box Office is not covering boxing for the moment so that leaves soon-to-be subscription channel BoxNation, PPV channel Primetime or Channel 5, who had 1.74m viewers for Fury-Pajkic.

IT must have been squeaky bum time for promoter Bob Arum this week as he waited to see if Antonio Margarito would be granted a licence to fight.

Margarito's grudge match with WBA world light-middleweight champ Miguel Cotto on December 3 was heading towards a sell-out in New York.

However, there were doubts over Margarito's health after an op to remove a cataract but he was finally granted a licence on Tuesday.

BOXING lost two good men last week in manager and promoter Gus Robinson MBE and amateur trainer Mick Carney MBE.

I worked with Gus on many big shows in the North-East featuring Naseem Hamed and Nigel Benn while Mick produced countless champions. They will be sadly missed.

THE Klitschkos have already tempted one champion out of retirement — Rocky Balboa.

Sylvester Stallone is backing a stage version of the iconic Rocky movie and has joined the Klitschkos, who will co-produce the show. It will start in Hamburg in November 2012 and then transfer to Broadway.
