Haye: Final Numbers Will Lure Wladimir, Boente Back

Former heavyweight champion David Haye is holding out hope of a rematch against Wladimir Klitschko after his points defeat by the Ukranian in Hamburg last Saturday. Klitschko's manager, Bernd Boente has ruled out the possibility, but Haye believes a second fight would make sense for both camps. The Londoner battled for the full 12 rounds before losing by a unanimous decision after the three judges scored the fight 117-109, 118-108 and 116-110, all in Klitschko's favor.

"Once he realizes there's no other fighter in the heavyweight division that can generate as much interest as me, maybe he'll come back and say OK. As much as he [Boente] doesn't like me, his fighter has earned five times more than he's ever earned before in his life. We've got to wait for the numbers to come in but whatever it is, it's not bad for a night's work," Haye told the BBC.

"He [Wladimir] said he would knock me out but didn't do that. He hit me with his best shots and he couldn't put me down. He's a lot bigger than me and said he really wished he had knocked me out, but he couldn't do it. So maybe he'll want the opportunity to knock me out and finish my career. Every boxer wants the opportunity to fight for the unified title and fighting him would bring that. He's the main man and I'd love another opportunity. Whether or not he gives me one remains to be seen."

[QUOTE=Check_hooks;10797079]If it was a close fight than maybe. Problem was that Haye got his ass beat 11 rounds to 1 and that 1 round was because the ref took a point away from Wlad without warning. Wlad beats Haye 100…
