Haye Seem Focused, Wants To Claim All The Gold
British boxer David Haye spoke of his intention on Friday to become the sport's undisputed heavweight champion, priming himself for bouts against both Klitschko brothers.
Haye, 32, wants to unify all four belts and said the “best way” to achieve his goal would be to secure a bout against WBC title-holder Vitali Klitschko before a match-up with WBA, IBF and WBO king Wladimir Klitschko.
“The world needs one unified champion and I hope we can agree a fight at a football stadium in Germany this summer against Vitali,” said Haye.
Haye took the WBA heavyweight title after defeating Russia's Nicolay Valuev before defending his title on two occasions, but the Briton was on the wrong end of an unanimous decision to Wladimir Klitschko in a WBA-WBO-IBF title fight in July 2011.
Haye then subsequently retired before returning to defeat compatriot Dereck Chisora in London last July.
“After I have fought Vitali, I want revenge against Wladimir to be able to unify the heavyweight titles which hasn't been done in several years,” he added.

[QUOTE=HeroBando;12957602]He didn't land nothing, he landed a pathetic percentage. It balances out Haye barely throwing, at the rate of 1 punch every 15 seconds! And until round 12, barely bothersome to Valuev. You're just asking to get robbed by the…Comment by HeroBando on 01-26-2013

[QUOTE=HeroBando;12957579]When you're German based, outthrowing your opponent 3-1, and not being hurt in the slightest for 11 rounds, the home judges will usually award you the fight (especially if the opponent throws a disgraceful 12 punches a round).
