Haye To Charr: If You Beat Vitali, Then It's Me and You!

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE wants to challenge for the WBC world title next year after claiming he is the best heavyweight around.

Haye put himself right back into world title contention with a fifth-round KO of Dereck Chisora at West Ham’s Upton Park on Saturday.

Now his sights are set on a showdown clash with the winner of the September 8 bout between WBC champ Vitali Klitschko and Manuel Charr.

The 31-year-old is back to his confident best following his convincing win over Chisora in front of 32,000 fans. The former WBA belt holder said: “I think that result will have sent shockwaves around the world.”

Charr, 27, was at ringside and interrupted the post-fight press conference to throw down a challenge to Haye.

The unbeaten German said: “I promise you I will destroy Vitali Klitschko in September and we can make the contest for you and for me.

“I know I will beat him. I have the power, I have the vision and then after I defeat him, I hope we can fight.”

Haye said: “If you beat Vitali, then it’s me and you. Good luck. I will be ready because this win has shown just how good I am.

“If Vitali Klitschko beats Manuel, I’d love to challenge him for his title. If not, it isn’t meant to be.”

Haye briefly retired after losing to IBF and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko via a unanimous points decision last July.

The prospect of locking horns with Chisora tempted him back into the ring and now he looks to have regained all of his old enthusiasm for the sport.

But whatever happens Haye insists he is happy with the way he bounced back from the Klitschko display in such devastating style.

He said: “What will be will be. If this was my last performance, I can say I went out with a bang and a great performance.”

If it's not until next year then he'd better get something organized, before the years out with someone else. To rest is to rust!

I lost confidence in Haye after Wladimir Klitscho fight. He may can knock out a freak show like Chisora but I think the Klitscho's scare him in the ring because he talked a good one outside of it but inside…

Charr is lucky Haye was in a jovial mood, otherwise he would have got the Tripod treatment

I think he said that at press conference when Charr get to him, but he had that little smile that looked like he was thinking "Of course you will beat him Manuel, of course...".
