Two-division former world champion David Haye is furious with Bernd Boente, the manager of WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Earlier today, Haye announced on Twitter that Vitali agreed to fight him next. Boente, during an interview with BoxingScene.com, disputed Haye's announcement and said it's "not true."
Boente's denial has reached Haye, who claims that he agreed to every term of the contract. Meanwhile, Boente states that Haye is demanding a "massive guarantee" to accept the fight. Even Haye himself, in an earlier interview, revealed that he accepted an agreement in December, but the terms were later changed and he wasn't satisfied with the new deal.
"I just heard that Bernd Boente has retracted Vitali's agreement to fight. Bernd obviously wants more Mormeck nights. Maybe someone should tell Bernd Boente that he works for Vitali. Vitali said today that he wants the fight, so why's Bernd Boente b*tching out. I agreed in December to all terms for the Vitali fight - money, rematches, location, gloves, allocation of tickets, etc. After hearing Vitali's interview on SKY, I feel he's not been given all the facts by his team about me. As I have already agreed to all terms," Haye stated.
