Klitschko in Play? Warren Grabs David Haye's May 21 Date

By Rick Reeno

Several strong sources have advised BoxingScene.com that promoter Frank Warren has secured the date of May 21 on Sky Sports. The details of Warren's show is expected in the next two weeks. The date of May 21 was previously reserved for WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23KOs).

The WBA had ordered Haye to defend his title against mandatory challenger Ruslan Chagaev. For the last few weeks, the proposed fight has been in limbo as the British Board of Control continues to review Chagaev's medical records. Chagaev's link to Hepatitis B would likely prevent him from being approved to fight in the country.

With Warren grabbing the date, there is growing speculation in England that Haye is going to accept an offer to fight WBO/IBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49KOs) on July 2.

Klitschko is scheduled to defend his titles against unbeaten Dereck Chisora on April 30, and then there are plans to face Tomasz Adamek in September. But, Klitschko left the July date open to squeeze in a potential fight with Haye.

I think Diva Gaye v Wjabamir Clinchko is a 50/50 fight.
