Klitschko: Me and David Haye Are 'Miles Apart' on a Deal

By Chris LaBate

According to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, a possible agreement to fight British rival David Haye is not even close to being a finalized option. Klitschko (43-2, 40KOs) will defend his title against Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9KOs) on February 18th in Munich, Germany. Haye lost a twelve round decision to Vitali's younger brother, Wladimir Klitschko, last July in Hamburg, and then he retired from the sport in October - although he left the door open for a comeback fight against Vitali.

"David Haye touched me personally with his bad words, about my brother. That's my family. And my goal is to fight David Haye and after this fight David Haye won't have any excuses on why he lost the fight. We are talking to him but we are miles apart from anything. It's not just money, there are so many points. I will fight him in at any point in the world, in London, Germany and the South Pole. I want to fight him and knock him out," Klitschko told BBC Sport.
