Haye: Vitali, The Only Fighter To Make My Return Longer

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE is “ready and willing” to challenge WBC world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko.

Haye bounced back from a short-lived retirement to claim a fifth-round victory over arch enemy Dereck Chisora in London.

Now the 31-year-old wants the elder of the two Klitschko brothers next, claiming: “He’s the only fighter who can make my return a prolonged one.”

But Haye believes Vitali, 40, who is due to meet Syrian Manuel Charr on September 8, may be too worried to meet him.

He said: “The likelihood is that he fights Charr and then retires, getting out just before his body breaks down and I take his belt.

“The Charr fight is a low risk, low reward contest. Most people reckon Vitali is the toughest heavyweight in the world. He’s the guy I want next.

“Whether my performance against Chisora inspires him to accept a fight with me or run in the other direction instead, I have no idea.

“But I am ready and willing should pride get the better of politics with Vitali Klitschko deciding to accept a fight with me.”

Klitschko has won 44 of his 46 fights and has hinted at retiring for a career in politics – but the prospect of fighting Haye could be too tempting.

Haye quit briely after losing a unification battle in Hamburg last July to Vitali’s brother Wladimir, who now holds the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts.

But he added: “If a fight with Vitali happens, that would be fantastic. If it doesn’t, so be it.

“ I’ve achieved more than I anticipated. I’m happy.”

[QUOTE=Dr_Calvin;12362285]Who isn't in the game for a payday?[/QUOTE] True, but in the Haye's case, he earned his first Klitschko shot with his big mouth, disappointed terribly when he got his shot, and now looks for a second shot he didn't…
