Haye's Peace With The WBC Could Lead To Klitschko

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE moved a step closer to a very lucrative fight with Vitali Klitschko last night after secret peace talks with the WBC. The organization vowed to outlaw Haye, 31, after a wild Munich press conference brawl in February with Dereck Chisora, who had just lost on points to WBC champion Klitschko.

WBC bosses threatened more action after he beat Chisora at Upton Park in July in a fight sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation.

That appeared to bar Haye from fighting Klitschko, but he held talks with the WBC in London last week – and could fight Klitschko in February.

A WBC spokesman said: “David Haye is welcome to return to the WBC. WBC president Jose Sulaiman spoke with David, who wants to return to fight for our organization.”

Klitschko, 41, defends his title against Syria’s Manuel Charr in Moscow on Saturday. If Vitali wins, he may retire afterwards in order to pursue a full time career in politics.

But the prospect of a retirement nest egg would tempt the Ukrainian to fight Haye – even though he can’t stand the Londoner.

Vitali's future in the sport will depend on the outcome of the upcoming mayoral election in Kiev, which Vitali is favored to win.

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;12476748]Haye's inactivity is annoying. He treats boxing like Mayweather treats boxing, it's not cool from a British fighter and is out of step with a proud history.[/QUOTE] At least Floyd comes back and beats some of the top…
