Froch: Silly Klitschko Money Might Bring Back Haye

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch urged his good friend David Haye to enjoy retirement - but Froch wouldn't be surprised if he saw him in a ring again. Haye, a former two-division world champion confirmed his decision to quit boxing on Thursday, his 31st birthday, despite rumors that he was in talks for a big-money showdown with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Froch believes a big payday against Vitali might possibly entice Haye to come out of retirement.

Froch told Sky Sports News HD the following - "Everything he was saying was gearing towards retiring. He's obviously had a chat with the Klitschkos, the brother Vitali, but the problem is they're not make a realistic offer. So David is looking at things - he has a wonderful family - and has decided it's time to retire. Fair play to him and good luck to him. He achieved greatness in the sport - let's not forget he was undisputed heavyweight champion and a fantastic champion.

"If they come round talking silly money and the fans want to see it then maybe he could step out of retirement for a fight with Vitali. He's certainly young enough; at heavyweight he could have a few more years. But I think at the minute he should stay retired. He should keep living clean like he does - he doesn't do anything silly like drink or smoke - and if he did want to come out of retirement and the fans demanded it. It's not for me to say whether or not he would, but I am sure if there's big, big money on the table then he could be prised out of retirement."

for once, I'd like to see someone take a stand on principle rather than money -- hope VK tells Haye to drop dead instead of making him another few million by agreeing to fight him -- Haye's lucky that he…

If he values his life he should stay retired, vitali would put him in a body bag, regardless of how good his little toe is!
