Haye: Toe is No Excuse, I'll Fight Wladimir in November

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion David Haye is 100% willing to postpone his planned retirement in October, if Wladimir Klitschko changes his mind on a possible rematch. Haye was dominated for twelve rounds last Saturday night in Hamburg, but he wants to make things right by putting on a better performance in a rematch, which Wladimir has no interest in making. After the fight was over, Haye blamed a broken toe as being a factor in his loss to Wladimir, but now states that his toe injury is no excuse for what happened in the ring.

“I’d love the opportunity to try again as the challenger,” said Haye. “I hate losing, and the way I feel today, if he offered me a fight in November, I would take it. It’s down to Wlad to give me the opportunity. I did the big talk but on Saturday night I didn’t walk the walk. You’ve got to take your lumps. You can complain about a million and one things but it didn’t change what happened in the ring. My toe is not an excuse for what happened in the fight. If I were to fight him again, I’d do things differently.”
