Haye: I'm in Talks For Vitali, I Don't Deserve 50-50 Now

Former heavyweight world champion David Haye is in talks to fight WBC title holder Vitali Klitschko in March 2012. Haye, 31, who retired in October after losing to the Ukrainian's brother Wladimir, says he will lower his pay demands to make sure the fight happens.

"I haven't seen a contract but there's definitely talks going on," he told the BBC's Hardtalk programme. "I said before I retired I would love that fight and there's a date in March that's already been talked about. I said I'd want to fight Vitali, the big brother of Wladimir, who beat me in my last fight. They're the only guys I'd consider coming out of retirement for."

"The last bout was a 50/50. This time I don't deserve that. I don't have a title, but what I do bring is excitement and I bring a value - but I don't believe it's 50/50."

London-born Haye, who had moved up from cruiserweight to take the heavyweight crown, lost his title in a unification bout when he was beaten on points by Wladimir in July and announced his retirement three months later, on his 31st birthday. The Briton said after the fight that his performance against the WBO, IBF and IBO champion had been affected by a broken toe. Haye admits nothing is certain yet on the proposed match-up with older brother Vitali.

"Whether it happens or not I don't know," he said. "What I will do is make sure I am in good shape so if the fight for whatever reason does happen, if they give me what I believe I deserve and if the date for the TV networks all comes together, then it would be something I would seriously consider."

[QUOTE=House of Stone]Haye is more dangerous than Byrd but doesn't have such good fundamentals.[/QUOTE] I disagree. For one punch power, yes. But Lewis couldnt drop V and landed some bombs. Byrd is more dangerous because he will stand in front of you, make you miss wear you down and box your e...
